While going through the file-cards ( attempting to reorganize the mess ) I have now decided to list the US labels by region*
(* In the event of field offices, this will be cross-referenced )

I have discovered that I have researched some two-hundred DETROIT-based labels and will list most of them here because some Guild-members might have some of these imprints with their collection, or for the few that might be interested.
This is NOT meant to be a complete list, but 200 is a good start!

Where applicable, label owners and addresses will also be listed, though many of these labels are now long-gone, they left behind some great recordings from and around the Motor City.
