In addition to our many albums by the above and other individual artists, the Music Library's collection also holds a number of compilation discs containing important tracks by influential acts. A few of those are included in the list of recordings at the right.

If you do a keyword search for a record label known for its roster of talent (e.g., "Bloodshot") and limit the Location to Music Library, your search results will return all of the albums we own on that particular label.
