USING OUR POWERFUL SEARCH ENGINE


Our webstore has a powerful search engine. Sometimes it's almost too powerful. Here are some tips on how to use it to your best advantage.

The "Search" function is located at the top center of most pages in the gray band. (See the illustration at the right.)

Just to the right of the word "Search" you will find a pull-down selector with four categories from which to choose. Here's how to use each of those categories:

ARTIST — If you want to search for recordings by a particular artist, just choose this category. Then type in the name of the artist in the white box immediately to the right. Then click "Go." Please be as accurate as possible in entering the group name. If it's a longer name, try using fewer words, such as "Signature Sound" or "Ernie Haase" instead of "Ernie Haase & Signature Sound."

TITLE — Use this category to find specific projects or other items by title (such as an album, video or book title) or to find a particular accompaniment track by song title. Please be as accurate as possible in entering the title. Entering just a part of the title (known to be correct) is better than entering too many. Do not use this category to search for songs on a project. For those, use the "Description" category.

DESCRIPTION — This category searches the "Detailed Description" found with the entries for each specific item. Normally, this includes song titles. Use this category to search for song titles. The search will find all recordings with that particular song on it. Please be as accurate as possible in entering the title. Entering just a part of the title (known to be correct) is better than entering too many. Do not use this category to search for accompaniment track titles; use the "Title" category for that purpose.

ITEM NUMBER — If you know the exact item number you are looking for (our item number as found in our printed catalog, our ads, our e-mail newsletter or previously found on the web) you can use this category to go to the item immediately. Just put the item number in the search field and hit "Go."
