TRANS means which Tiffany Transcription disc (16 inch discs distributed to radio stations) it was released on and the letter is the track number. Issued is where is was issued since the demise of the Tiffany Transcription Co. KAL means Kaleidoscope with the following prefixes “F” means LP, “C” means cassette and “K” means CD. Not all issues on other labels are listed. Both Rhino (who purchased Kaleidoscope Records), Edsel Records in England, and Collectors Choice issued the Kaleidoscope albums pretty much unaltered.

This discography is based on the discography by Jeff Alexson and Tom Diamant published in the February 1988 Western Swing Newsletter.There are still unanswered questions and it is continually being researched and updated.

    I am a 68 yr old country music researcher from England and I’m desperate to obtain a copy of the song “I’m waiting for ships (that never come in)” which Bob Wills recorded on Transcription 41. The song was never re-released on lp or cd, so it is a question of finding someone with the original transcription who may be kind and generous enough to make me a copy. I will of course pay any expenses that may be involved. I hope and pray you might be able to help me. Many thanks. I await with eager anticipation. Sincerely, David Bussey

      I hope someone reads this and can help you out. I cannot supply copies of the recordings. There are a whole range of copyright laws, reasons, and expenses. This site is for educational purposes only. I will only put up some short clips now and then for examples. Sorry.
