Yes, I am interested in the booklet numbers for any Play:Back release that you have. The booklet number normally can be seen on the bottom of the 3rd page. Example:
"Issue 17 Editor: Bob Sarlin Associate Editor: Wayne..."

A list of items that came with the disc would also be appreciated:
- Disc
- Playback sleeve
- Playback mailing envelope
- Questionnaire
- Booklet/magazine...

Thanks in advance.
Here is some of what I have, I've got too many records and I can't find the Bruce's right now.

AS-23 includes booklet (no number)
AS-39 includes booklet (no number) and "new feedback" card ... k-form.jpg
AS-47 includes booklet # 19
AS-48 includes booklet # 21
AS-58 includes booklet # 29
AS-75 includes booklet # 40A

A belated reply, as I just found this one in a used bookstore yesterday, for the staggering price of 10 cents. I don't see this one on globaldog's website, so I am attaching a scan, too.

AS 43 - John Hammond, producer of the original Billie Holiday recordings, discusses them with Dan Morgenstern, of Downbeat Magazine.

AS 43 was also issued as a white-label Columbia bonus disk for the Billie Holiday reissues set ... interesting to see a different issue, retaining the same record no. and label text, in the Playback series.
