    In 1972/73 Elvis Presley had used up his money.He sold all the music rights to RCA Victor to get more money.SONY at that time wanted to buy the rights for Elvis music.If i am not wrong the US president at time stopped SONY so that could not buy it.I
    Look for mistakes in the book in the session discography,major mistake.George Strait is not mentioned in the duet"Six packs to go"

    As long as it is not something critical (like a box set being crushed), I keep it too. I have hundreds of empty, new jewel boxes to replace or upgrade any damaged boxes.

    Hi @Mychael can you ask Bear Family to release a 1CD comp of Del Shannon as part of the "Rocks" series? We need a definitive single disc comp and the "Rocks" series CDs make excellent gifts.

    Yeah actually, that is disappointing! The David Frizzell audio biography can be purchased separately, I think I
    posted something in this thread before. It's a very good listen, but the down side I found, David also talks about
    his own life and his own releases during the reading. It also doesn't have any detail about the death of Lefty
    towards the end at all, and again, steers back towards David's experiences.
    Gosh, I had the impression there was going to be a bunch of newly added recordings!
    Think i'll stick to 'Life's Like Poetry'.
    edit: the original audio biography is also 8 discs.

    Actually, that's a bit 'sheepish' for Bear Family to do that come to think of it.
    The impression seemed to be a heap of new music previously unreleased.
    The box itself looks amazing, and I sure bet the book is amazing too.
    A bit misleading knowing that the 8 discs are already available and for a cheap price.

    I still plan on getting the updated set for the expanded book and whatever new music is included, but I probably wouldn't if I already had the old set.

    Looks like the old set had 328 tracks. The new one says "361 songs".

    I noticed this note on Martin Hawkins website (he worked on The Sun Blues Box):

    I'm currently working on three music-related projects. They're big ones, but they have serious deadlines so you may see them soon.

    'The Memphis Blues Box' - a set of CDs containing all the best blues music recorded in Memphis by Memphis-area singers and musicians from 1927 right through to the 1970s when the days of the 78 and 45 rpm single disc ended. Due out in 2018.

    That sounds promising. The other two he mentions are the Louisiana Hayride box and a book:

    'Tennessee Troubadours' - a book collecting together many of my unpublished and formerly-published but much updated interviews and features on musicians who criss-crossed the mid-South and beyond in the 1940s, 50s and 60s. Due out in 2017/2018.

    I hope someone on this board won this. I was watching the original listing last night, it was bid on at 85.00 or buy it now at like $115. The auction ended and he re-posted, apparently buy it now for $59.99 and I slept right through it and missed it. It just wasn't meant to be. That's ok, I got an almost brand new Jimmy Martin boxed set for $60 earlier in the week.

    You'll have to click on the "listing is unavailable" link at the top to see it.

    Good eye. Either the audiobook chapters are mislabeled as songs, or there'll be 10% more music.
    Not yet, hopefully this week.

    Back to Eddy Arnold cd box.Will there be a cd box with Eddy Arnold recordings before he started recording for RCA?
    Here is a cd with recordings done for a recording company called: Brown record company.

    I got the first Slim Whitman box set, Rose Marie, for 23 GBP (plus shipping) late in 2016 from Amazon UK, new.
    It was clearly a pricing error, I lucked out on it. They upped it shortly after - now it's 104 GBP from them.
    I wish all their box sets were around 30 bucks, I could afford some more that way

    Very, very disappointing.

    That kind of thing can hurt a company's reputation, unless the price code system is adjusted so the 8CDs are just a bonus

    How about a free copy if I send a picture of myself wrestling a grizzly bear?

    Here is my picture:

    $257.84 for the new one, the old one was listed at $233.94; so I would say it's not a bad price. It's priced the same as the Roy Acuff and Cater family sets.
