Music Library Label Chart

Summer of Love - August 26

The chart below illustrates the new system for organizing KOOP's Music Library. Due to a limited choice of colored labels, there are only 9 sections, with genres lumped together in a (hopefully) logical fashion. The system is similar to the old one, but instead of cutting and combining labels to denote sections, genres are noted with a simple letter code -- which is usually the first one or two letters of the genre name. Examples are given below. The World music section differs in that it uses a white label with colored letters.
