Bibliography Notes: 2005-2009

These files attempt to list every known Robert Christgau article, in preparation for building a bibliographic database. They are scaffolding: something we use to build on, but not part of the finished structure. Links are provided to the website where articles are available. Entries without links are work-to-be-done. As such, this provides a checklist for adding content to the website.

Most of the original data for these files comes from Joe Yanosik.
