Notes for August 2013
Number of items in this month's catalogue: 1Truly the dog-days of summer for new releases. Of all the labels which left Qualiton, whose last new release was in May, only BIS, Supraphon, Centaur and Signum have shown up at their new distributors (and Signum not until next month), meaning that literally dozens of new releases are piling up somewhere waiting for release sometime. We can only wait and hope that they will show up soon.
