General note

This series includes many recordings which are poorly labelled, not clearly identified, and lack accompanying documentation. More research is required to properly identify the recordings, document their contents, and clarify their associations with other records. Some recordings may more properly belong in different series or sub-series of the Imbert Orchard fonds.

Alpha-numeric designations

Series previously listed as AAAA2201.


Many of these recordings lack preservation masters and reference copies. More comprehensive copying work is necessary to preserve this material and make it accessible -- particularly the material in accessions T4222 and T4255.
