Having been at this awhile now, it has become clear that older posts can become difficult to access.  Here, then, is a place where they can be found more easily.

I have two notes about this page:

1. this page is under construction and is being filled as time allows.  2015 is done, as is the latter part of 2019.  I know, I should make up my mind.

2. many of the jazz posts have been affected by YouTube’s takedown of MusicProf78’s page.  That page had become my go-to source for many of these records, and the links are now useless.  Alternate sources will be found and substituted as time allows.
