Re: [ARSCLIST] Obscure Columbia record catalog...

Just out of curiosity would any of these be credited to any composers we would know nowadays ?

I asked this question on the 78-L list and came up empty, so....

Somewhere around 1932, Columbia in the UK produced a catalog titled:-

"Catalog of Film Accompaniment Records"

It contained hundreds of their standard records of the day listed under 18
headings of 'Characteristic and Mood Music' and it included specialized mood
recordings for film synchronization by composers like J.S. Zamecnik.

I wonder if that was something issued by Columbia only in the UK or would it
also have seen the light of day in America?  I've never heard anything
previously about it... does anyone, by any chance, have a copy?
