Well, I can see your frustration...on the other hand, for over 15 years
I produced a radio program where very few of the selections were in
print! I can also recall some radio programs I would regularly tape
because I knew I could not find the records...however, after some 30
years or so, I have found most of them...

Perhaps not a brilliant idea but, try checking online with
Princeton Record Exchange
and a bunch of other places that advertize in Grammophone, American Record
Guide and Fanfare
