Rhythm and Blues (R&B): Discographies and Recording Guides

Defining Discography

A discography is

"A purposeful, critical list or catalogue of sound recordings.

A discography may include recordings in any medium, not merely those on some form of disc.

The crucial distinction between a discography and a library or manufacturer's catalogue is the critical selection and organization of its information for a distinct purpose."
