SOUND RECORDINGS IN AACR2 Nancy Lorimer, Stanford University
Scope Recorded music AACR2 Chapter 6 & parts of Chapter 21 Only music recordings covered, not spoken word Only 4 ¾ in. discs (CDs, SACDs, DVD-audio), with some mention of other types Again, a focus on aspects that are important to music cataloging MARC fields
Fixed fields 008 in the sound recordings workform: Important fields (not covered in scores): Type (Type of Record) Part (Music Parts) TrAr (Transposition and Arrangement) FMus (Form of Music) LTxt (Literary Text for Sound Recordings)
Fixed fields for sound recordings Type (Type of Record) Code “j” for musical sound recordings Code “i” for non-musical sound recordings Includes recordings of sounds (including bird calls & sound effects), as well as spoken-word recordings Comp (Form of Composition) Code if known (drop down list) For multiple forms, either use “mu” & 047 OR “uu” (LC default)
Fixed fields for Sound Recordings Part (Music Parts) & TrAr (Transposition and Arrangement Both should be coded “n” for “Not applicable” (not notated music) Default in current workform for sound recordings In older records, coding may not be present, and will prevent record validation FMus Code “n” for “Not applicable” (not notated music)
007 field—Subfields $a Category of material$i Kind of disc, cylinder or tape $b Specific material designation$k Kind of material $d Speed$l Kind of cutting $e Configuration of playback channels$m Special playback characteristics $f Groove width/pitch$n Capture & storage techniques $g Dimensions $h Tape width $i Tape configuration
007 field $a s = sound recording$i n = Not applicable (Tapes only) $b d = disc$j m = mass/commercially produced $d f = 1.4 m per sec.$k m = Plastic with metal $e u = unknown channels$ l n = Not applicable (vinyl only) $f n = Not applicable (vinyl only)$m e = Digital recording $g g = 4 3/4 in. (12 cm)$n d = Digital storage $h n = Not applicable (Tapes only)
Digital recording vs Digital Storage Digital recording (007 $m e) The item requires digital playback equipment. Do not use when there is an indication that digital equipment was used during recording, but that analog playback equipment may be used. Do not use for any commercial recordings prior to 1982 and no analog disc or tape recordings. Digital storage (007 $n d) The item is a sound recording which was captured electrically and stored using digital techniques. Such recordings are normally identified as "digitally recorded." Do not confuse with digital playback techniques.

Title—Chief source Preferred chief source = LABEL (meaning the face of the disc) If no title on label, then: Container (which includes any insert seen through container) Internal text of insert Exception: If no collective title on the label, a collective title from another source on the disc may be used instead.
Title First choice for title is the label $a Glenelg
Performing group as Title Only title is the name of the performer/group Particularly common with popular music The Flying Bulgar Klezmer Band
Title: CD specific issues Often no collective title available The rite of spring ; $b The firebird suite Carnival of the animals / $c Saint-Saëns. 5 histoires / Ibert. Babar the elephant / Poulenc.
GMD (general material designation) ALWAYS $h [sound recording] Generally comes after the $a; after a $n, $p, or $v if present Glenelg $h [sound recording] The Flying Bulgar Klezmer Band $h [sound recording] The rite of spring $h [sound recording] ; $b The firebird suite : selections Carnival of the animals $h [sound recording] / $c Saint-Saëns. 5 histoires / Ibert. Babar the elephant / Poulenc. Maps and legends. $n 1 $h [sound recording]
Other title information Very common in sound recordings, but may not be in same place as the title proper Container (front, spine, back) Insert Only those on chief source go in the 245; if considered useful for access, add a 246 field; other title information from outside the chief source can also can be entered the 246 with a $i giving source
Other Title Information Glenelg $h [sound recording] : $b variations in light and shade Variations in light and shade
Statement of responsibility Composers, lyricists, arrangers may be included Performers are not usually included unless their participation "goes beyond that of performance, execution, or interpretation of a work (as is commonly the case with “popular,” rock, and jazz music)”. (AACR2 6.1F1). Otherwise, this goes in a note. LCRI 6.1F1 states: “The rule allows performers who do more than perform to be named in the statement of responsibility. Accept only the most obvious cases as qualifying for the statement of responsibility.”
Statement of Responsibility Glenelg $h [sound recording] : $b variations in light and shade. [No statement of responsibility]
Statement of responsibility The rite of spring $h [sound recording] ; $b The firebird suite : selections / $c Stravinsky Carnival of the animals / $c Saint-Saëns. 5 histoires / Ibert. Babar the elephant / Poulenc.
Publication information Can be very difficult with sound recordings Place of publication often missing entirely May find multiple possible publishers or none May find manufacturers/distributors in lieu of publishers
Publication information: rules of thumb Look first for a publisher and always use a label name rather than a large company name the label name will often be given as a logo or in decorative text The label name will usually be on the actual disc; company names will also be on the disc on the back of the container There may be multiple label names; choose the most predominant or choose all
Publication information: rules of thumb Once your label is established, consider the place of publication Only use “S.l.” as a last resort; try to surmise the place, even if just a country In surmising place of publication for a label, look at any distribution or manufacturing information on the disc; if that doesn’t help, use outside sources as time permits: Other bib records with the same label name Web site for the label or its distributor
Dates Take first the publication date, if one is there Then prefer the phonogram date If there is also a copyright date, and it is much newer than the phonogram date, use that a surmised publication date If the publication date differs from the p date, record both Use other dates to surmise a publication date If phonogram date is older than the format, surmise a publication date
Other dates Recording date (recorded in the 518 & 033) 260 Tokyo : $b King Records, $c p Recorded at Studio no. 2, King Records, Tokyo, Apr Reissue date (recorded in a 500 note) 260 [U.S.] : $b Get Back, $c p Previously issued as an LP in 1960 by Unique Records.
