Has anyone else noticed that some of the recordings say this:
 
sound recording: Sterling Richard Smith 
(author 
of anon. contribution)

and others don't mention "anon. contribution". Perhaps this signifies the records on which the collaborators' influence was so strong that Smith felt at least obligated to mention that someone else was there. Or am I misinterpreting this government language?

I checked the library of congress website for this information and it only 
goes up to THE DOOR BEHIND... and nothing after that.?

very strange
