       (all future years will be published on CD-ROM, NOT in print,
        which makes them ineligible to list on my Print Bibliography pages)
All year volumes have three sections which list all records (LP's and 45's) by 1) Artist, 2) Label, and 3) Song/Album Title.
    Note: As none of the books have a Table of Contents (TOC), this first table includes the missing TOC for each volume.

This is just a sample list of labels included. I have no plans on ever listing every label on every page of all nine 1959-1967 volumes.
    Links are for Wisconsin based labels, or for those on which there is at least one release by a Wisconsin based artist or group.

Ace, Ace, Dixie, Dixie, Donna, Donna, Freedom, Freedom ... these are not mistakes. Presumably, these are labels with the same name which are based in different cities. With no city location information indicated for any label in any of the nine volumes, it is impossible to determine which duplicate label name applies to which different label.
      For possible locations for the Osborne listed labels, see the following Web site which lists locations for several thousand labels.
