By using single cutter LC got it wrong in most instances 
in their catalog . It should be a double cutter,

In our catalog I find nine titles cataloged by LC for which we have accepted the 050.  Two of the titles have a double Cutter.  The rest have a single Cutter based on the main entry.  One of the latter covers multiple record companies and I don't understand why it isn't classified in ML3790  Literature on music--Music trade--General works.
