GREY GULL AND PRE-PATHE CAMEO DISCOGRAPHIES — Update: The Grey Gull and pre-Pathé period Cameo discographies, originally planned as books, will instead be incorporated as modules within the Mainspring Master Database (currently in development and programming stages), rather than being published in printed form. The later (Pathé-related) Cameo data appears in The Pathé–Perfect Discography.
