Since 1994 I have received informational support directly from Bruce's record label and management in Toronto (True North Records and Finkelstein Management), with additional support from Rounder Records, Rykodisc Records and Columbia Records in the U.S. and Europe. While True North Records was sold in December 2007, Bruce currently remains with that label. The paper newsletter was first published in February 1994. Ten years later, in December 2003, the last paper issue was published. This site has been on the web since 1996.
