I believe they're a bit hit-and-miss - many are what someone thought
they were. Most mistakes have probably been rectified by now, but not
all. Oldham are still listed as Db, and Taylor's records show that
they're definitely in C. However, this is an understandable one - E to G
is a bit more difficult to believe! However, if Matthew's rung there and
says they are E I think we can take it as read that they are!

And yes - where are you Bill? We haven't heard from you for a while.
