PAPERBACK SPIN-OFFS: The following series of discographies do not have title pages; the cover title is quoted in full for each series. The spine title is with one exception the title by which a series is known. The name "W. Bruyninckx" appears only on the spines. No imprint appears; it is: [Mechelen, Belgium: Copy Express] in all cases. The books are not. dated; dates of actual publication quoted in square brackets are tolerably certain. The books have no ISBN numbers. These bibliographical problems no doubt account for the confusion in citations listed on the OCLC [Online Computer Library Center] database; we second that confusion and do not pretend to offer much improvement in the concise list that follows.
