MLBSSA Collections: Papers of Individuals and Companies

a listing of all collections open for research


This section includes the papers, collections and records of individuals and companies.

Off Centaur Records (Buck and Juanita Coulson Collection)

The Buck and Juanita Coulson Collection at the Bill Schurk Sound Archives (MUSIC 046) primarily consists of audiotape masters for much of the Off Centaur label's catalog, including live and studio performances for releases beginning in 1980 and ending in the late 1980s. In addition to commercially-released items, some of these tapes also contain non-album tracks, alternate takes, and other material that was not released commercially. There is scant accompanying paper documentation, containing recording dates, personnel, and notes by audio engineers, though this documentation does not exist for all reels. In addition to the audio content, there is also some material that documents publications in the filk community in the 1980s, many of which are related to Off Centaur's recordings, including submissions for zines likely published through Off Centaur and/or Firbird Arts. There are also some zines, convention materials, and other publications.
