That book's a great bargain, but it doesn't answer the question about Columbia records that I would like to know - what is the difference between blue label and black label Viva-Tonals?  You always see pop stuff on black label but you see classical on both black and blue. Most classical album sets are on blue but a few are on black. At least one album I have of Schubert lieder contains both black and blue labels. Was there a difference in price?  I once asked Kurt about why the book shows blue viva-tonal labels but no black and he said there was no point because they're both the same. I'm still waiting for an answer. I have similar questions about British Decca label colours.
