[78-L] Rust's Entertainment Discography

So what did Cole Porter et. al. DO in the entertainment discography, sing?
It doesn't seem to me that composers belonged in this book anyway.

There are still omissions in the second edition.  For instance Welcome Lewis
is not listed.  I had to go to the Victor Master book to learn anything.

Todd Rollins is a band, not a personality.  Isn't he in Rust's American
Dance Band or Shirley and Johnson? (I don't have those.)

and noticed that although it is a third longer than the first edition, some
entries have been eliminated, including those of composers like George
Gershwin, Victor Herbert, and Cole Porter. I had thought that with the
second edition, I'd be able to sell the first edition, but not without these
entries, which I consider essential for my research. Does anyone know of
other categories or entries that were deleted from the first edition and
what the most important additions for the 2nd ed. are? Looks like I'm going
to have to keep both on hand.

On the other hand, if the second edition had been a total improvement on 
the first, then that volume wouldn't be worth that much!

Rust also totally omitted Todd Rollins from his later edition of Jazz 
Records, although some have sufficient jazz content to be included.
