This discography documents the full range of Brunswick label recordings through 1931, when the American Record Corporation purchased the label.

This collection of material provides a unique cross-section of the music and musicians of the time. Much of the information derives from surviving company files and from issued recordings. This comprehensive discography will appeal to researchers and collectors. Each volume is indexed by artist.
