other info

record       1     general file info (filename, date etc)
records   2-53   keys/explanations/abbreviations/credits etc
records    54-    details of individual flyers, 1 flyer per record

approx 82% of the flyers listed are in my personal collection - info for flyers with a "*" after the date has come from various other sources including collectors' lists, online galleries and auctions on eBay.co.uk

records 1-53, fields DATE EVENT ORG have lots of "."s & ","s - useful if indexing or sorting on these fields - database records are currently sorted on fields DATE+EVENT (ascending) - zip files are updated irregularly

maybe one day the database will be x-ref'd with the Hyperreal Flyers Gallery and the UK Rave Flyers Price Guide
