The Sound Recorders
421 Powell St, San Francisco, California
12 PM
Recorded on 16 inch acetate discs.

The master discs for these sessions are lost, so there is probably more recorded than listed here. The recording information comes from lists from the Tiffany company that seemed to have been compiled at a later date. The documentation is confusing and may not be accurate.

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.
