<< I have a set of the SD Archives that I bought from TACBooks some
years ago. It is a gold mine (in the SCD sense; yes there are some
tailings, along woth the gold), and I recommend it to anyone
interested in the evolution of SCD from the late 60s through early
80s. I'd be interested to know a bit more about how it worked; it
appears to have been a subscription service; did one subscribe by
the dance, or the month, or the year, or ...? Also, I'd be
interested to know whether submissions were refereed and/or edited. >>

I have to agree with Peter. I've used several of the dances from the archives
with great success. A few of the dances are also published in later books.
You may find slight changes in some of the later editions.
