Congress Discography


As I am humble in my ambition, I do not claim this is the one and only truth. But I think it comes pretty close to that. The discography sprouts from the knowledge found on these sites:

Also from the Good Life pressing info sheets:

Good Life Pressing Info Sheets #1, #2, #3, #4

But also from my own knowledge I obtained while collecting Congress Records.

So the discography is an aggregator of above mentioned sites! I figured this needed to be bundled all in one page!

If you have something to add or correct please contact me here.
