Document is always looking for good quality Blues, Gospel, Jazz, Cajun,  Scottish, World and Christmas recordings from pre-1960
Ideally, we would hope that you might want to become part of the team and what has become to be known as “The Project” by donating or lending records or by  providing dubs of  them so that we may, with your help, continue to restore and make available quality vintage music for enjoyment and research. All contributions and contributors will be fully credited on the forthcoming CDs
Having said that we do of course pay a fair price for collectable recordings.
