Please, post you comments to the book here: they'll be precious Luca
Yes, it presents hundreds of US Matrix numbers (the ones I'm sure of). You can search Luca Accialini or the book title in Amazon's engine, it's available right now for Euro 32,00. I hope that this book encourage Collectors to let new info in and get to a definitive (?) edition in tho/three years. One last thing, it's not a bible, it's not error free: simply is the best I can do... Enjoy, Luca
In public reply to those who are writing to the email found in the book. Glad to see that you've appreciated the US LONDON section and thanks for the additions you're sending in. Yes, I wrote it all by myself and it's not downloaded from the web. It's a work-in-progress section, but I think that it'll take years before I publish the 6th edition of the book. If you want to receive up-dates, please ask and I will send the re-worked file, if big news get in. To Fabio: the section dedicated to the British export matrixes for local pressings was not ready in time for the dead-line and still isn't. It's amazing how many Countries received matrixes from DECCA England and, still, I have some doubts to solve. Surely, it would be usefull talkin' to mr. Bettiney about this. Thanks for the getting the book (150 copies have gone, this month), but - first of all - thanks for letting news in. All the best, Luca
