Arthur Butterworth: An Addendum to the Discography

I recently posted a discography of music by Arthur Butterworth. I included recordings that I thought were easily available in the record shops, online or perhaps in second-hand shops. However the composer has advised me of a number of other recordings of his music. Some of these are easily attainable, but one or two may be a wee bit harder to acquire. I have linked to a record company, shop or other source where possible.
