          This discography was originally installed in the UW-Parkside Music Archives in 1992, but it got accidently overwritten by another file and no backup of it could be found. After contacting its author at the University of Rochester in Rochester, NY, I received a copy of it from him via E-Mail on 10-20-1994. The discography is installed here in memory of its author, Derek Gross, who passed away on 7-13-1996.
