This supplement to V-Discs: A History and Discography updates the original volume which cataloged and described these unique recordings. The discographic section presents corrections and a wealth of new material that has come to light since the main discography was published. New information includes details on recording dates, personnel, vocalists and soloists, sources, playing times, composers, test pressings, studio dialogue, and spoken introductions, together with data on selections made from newly discovered V-Disc recording sessions. The supplement includes introductory material and notes (V-Disc personnel and recordings studios) and V-Disc mastering sheets. These 1942-1947 sheets complete the series inaugurated in V-Discs and are the last of these items in existence. The supplement also has an up-dated listing of AFRS transcriptions and LP record releases. Following the discography is a detailed artist/title index of all leaders, conductors, vocalists, and featured soloists appearing on selections listed in the supplement.
