Re: [ARSCLIST] Music Library record label

I've seen both 78s and LPs by this company. 78s have maroon labels and are in brown albums. They were based in San Francisco. I saw a fourth copy of the Roger Nixon String Quartet album yesterday. Why does this one turn up so often? I also recently saw a set by LA composer Ellis Kohs that I hadn't seen before. Maybe they were the CRI of the early 50s? Not to be overly cynical, but it seems to be faculty composers that needed a recording to get tenure.

I am only familiar with the label from the early days of the LP. All of the releases I have are mono with no indication that stereo copies were available.

  This is a later use of that name? There was such a label in the early LP days as well.

Subject: [ARSCLIST] Music Library record label

A friend of mine was asking about the Music Library label and if I had any information about it. I have a few discs and recall that Dave Canfield bought up what was left, including the wonderful Phalen Tassie records. I have a vague recollection that the label was based in California. I know the composer Robert Muczynski had some of his music released on the label. Bob and I taught together for a time at the University of Arizona. It was Bob who introduced me to the delights of the singing of Phalen Tassie!

Any related information would be welcome.
