References and sources

A reliable source must be able to support the requested information. All quotations and any material whose verifiability has been challenged or is likely to be challenged must include an inline citation of a source that directly supports the material.

Many 78 rpm records contain insufficient information about the music author or the performer. They are reduced to the last name of the performer, conductor and/or author. To determine the copyright status, the full name and the biographical data of the performer(s), composer(s), lyricist(s), conductor and the music arranger is required. In addition, the 1st release date, the 1st recording date and the place of the music venue are important. A good source of classical recordings is the AHRC Research Centre for the History and Analysis of Recorded Music. Please be sure to check out in Wikipedia if the name of the work is correctly written on the record. Example: Symphony No. 5 in C minor of Ludwig van Beethoven. Wikipedia shortens the name of their articles to Symphony No. 5 (Beethoven). To satisfy musicological needs, we write the full work name and link it to the Wikipedia article if exist.


Title= Symphony No. 5 in C minor
Title link= Wikipedia:Symphony No. 5 (Beethoven)

This will produce a title with link to the Wikipedia page: Symphony No. 5 in C minor
