The WONDRELAND Lp's are compilation albums of assorted tracks
from the Riverside Folklore Series albums.

The WASHINGTON Lp is a compilation of material
from the two previous John Runge RIVERSIDE albums.
(Many Washington albums were straight reissues of a single previous
Riverside album. In this instance they selected cuts from
the two preious albums).
