Record Research

Record Research was a magazine founded and edited by collector and researcher Len Kunstadt. It included original discography research, band photos, editorials and sale lists. It was a fantastic magazine that deserves continued availability for its contributions to the study of recording history and discography (even if many of the research projects have been superseded by finished discographies). I did not include the sales lists in my scans because I didn't think the benefits warranted the effort and increased file size. Because of inconsistencies in the numbering scheme over the years, issues are listed by issue number, rather than Vol./No.

For clarification, see Tyrone Settlemier's complete index of the magazine. Thanks to everyone who contributed magazines, scans and information toward this project. Thanks especially to Malcolm Rockwell, who sent scans of every issue filling in the gaps in what I'd found, and improving the quality of many I had.
