    I'm talking about the releases that are being bootlegged on vinyl, which are not recent releases like that one. People buying those "bootleg" vinyl Yazoos are expecting analogue mastering, like the originals. Most likely they are mastered from the common CD releases. I have the Skip James "bootleg" 180g vinyl, and I'm sure that's the case.

    This isn't a Frog release, it's from the now-defunct Nehi label (which was a creation of at least some of the principals behind the old Catfish reissue label).

    Frog Records bought the existing stock when Nehi went out of business, and is liquidating that stock through the Frog website.

    It's a nice compilation of songs, but the sonic qualities, while good, aren't quite up to Frog's standards for its own products.

    That is a two CD set with large size case and glossy color booklet, it would probably be expensive to bootleg. I'm actually surprised the early Yahoo CDs that duplicated the LPs haven't been bootlegged since many have been out of print since the mid 1990s and sell for large sums used (like Alabama Blues and Frank Stokes Dream). Those early Yazoo CDs are great, only wish I bought them all before they went out of print. I used to see them all the time at Tower Records but my listening focus was on Memphis and Mississippi at the time so I missed many.
     
  8. I have a bunch of Carr lp's on Magpie vinyl. Incredible sound and performances.
     
  9. Just got these, and they are incredible. #4 is over 170 pages, and #5 over 200 pages. Beautiful, thick books with more information, pictures and stories then you will ever be able to finish. Any person who is enjoying and contributing to this thread would be hard pressed to find any other publications that are so lovingly put together about this music.

    Oh, and if that wasn't enough the cd's that come with them have 27 and 26 cuts, respectively. Incredible music, too, of course.

    What about cajun music? My favourite is the husband and wife duo Cleoma Breaux & Joe Falcon. They made recordings in the late 20s and 30s and sung in Cajun French of course. Unfortunately very little has been released on vinyl (there's one LP under Cleoma's name called "A Cajun Music Classic" from the mysterious Jadfel label, which I guess doesn't have any songs sung by Joe), and even with CDs the only option seems to be a various artists box set (Cajun Early Recordings from JSP).

    Where is the best place price wise to get these? Frog's own site? I know they are expensive. They look very nice but I've not seen an actual copy yet? Any U.S. seller?
     
  13. I ordered from their website. Amazon and affiliated sellers of theirs have it also.
