Additional care should be taken with release dates for Burr's Columbia releases. For releases which do not have known dates, do not imply release dates from catalog numbers (ie, if Col 1000 and Col 1002 were released in August 1901, if Col 1001 is a Burr release, then Col 1001 has a much higher than normal chance of not being also an August 1901 release). Many of Burr's Columbia releases were rerecordings of earlier Columbia releases originally recorded by a different artist; the original artist's release with (for example) Col 1001 would have been the August 1901 release, the Burr rerelease recorded and released at some point at least several months later, often reusing the same catalog number.
Burr recorded many of the same songs multiple times for different labels. The same title appearing on, for example, Edison and Victor, indicates 2 different releases, not the same release with 2 different label and catalog numbers.
