We have been endorsed by experts in the field of musical history. Here are a few examples of their quotes over the years:

Dick Clark - American Bandstand
"This is a great source for information. A required reference (MUSICMASTER) for any serious music collector."

Alan Lorber - Record Producer - New York
"I found MUSICMASTER truly helpful and quite wonderful. From a music professional point of view, I was very impressed with the ease of researching and wealth of information."

Andy Linehan - Curator of Popular Music
British Library - London, England
MUSICMASTER is certainly an enormous work and I can only express great admiration for its detail and comprehensiveness. It should prove a valuable resource to researchers and members of the public who are interested in american popular music."

Charles Hamm - Professor of Music
Dartmouth College
Mawhinney is a true pathbreaker in attempting to apply (comprehensive information) to products of the rock era. It is a pleasure to report that the discography of the rock era has taken a giant step forward with the release of "MUSICMASTER". It is indispensable to reference libraries and scholars alike."

Gerald Parker - Head of the Recorded Sound Collection
National Library of Canada
"MUSICMASTER" is certainly a path breaking publication. A significant discographical resource."

Andrew Masich - President and CEO
John Heinz Pittsburgh Regional History Center
"What a great resource you have. Built upon your passion for preserving an important piece of american history. Your extraordinary collection is a national treasure. Few realize that the largest collectionin the United States, perhaps the world, is right here in our own back yard."

Mark S. Cerami - CEO
Priority Records
"All of us at Priority Records sincerely appreciate the use of your archives for our "Baby Boomer's Best" compact disc series. Without your help, it would have been impossible to complete our project and still maintain the quality for which our company strives."

Well, that should give you a good idea about what makes my clock tick. I would be thrilled to share my ability as the curator of such a collection with you. Please call and give me a specific day and time of your visit and we can arrange it. Thanks for your friendship and support.
