Organized chronologically by album, North details each recording with the composer, song title, timing, date and site of the recording session, producer of that session, matrix numbers, and every American issue of each recording. Several appendixes organize the information alphabetically by composer, song title, and album title, referencing the discography by date of recording. Available downloads from the Internet are included in the song title appendix, while additional appendixes address CDs and V-Discs, the records created by the U.S. Army and Navy for worldwide distribution to members of the armed forces during World War II.
