    Oh my goodness, isn't the sound on this box set fantastic? Wow, Smoke Gets In Your Eyes, Twilight Time, and so many others just sound so full and rich, like I have never heard them before. Definitely one of my favorite Bear Family box sets in my vast collection.

    I seriously wonder of anyone has a complete Bob Wills Tiffany collection. I bought several dozen rare ones from a private dealer years ago, a number that still haven't been released commercially, but they were transferred from discs that weren't in the greatest condition, and while certainly listenable, they don't sound like the Real Gone set (which upgraded a dozen or so of my rarities).

    I have more than 300 confirmed Tiffanys but I know there are even more. I actually wrote to Bear Family around the time they did their Columbia Wills box and asked if they had any thought of doing a Tiffanys box. I got a response saying they would love to do it, but that they couldn't get 'em from the rights holder.

    I wonder what a Buddy Holly autograph would go for? Surely wouldn't be many of those around.
    That set is priced at double the original was. Being only 88 produced with the Guitar Case, it's probably
    a great investment. I read somewhere, apparently Paul McCartney has one in his stash.

    While this is one of my favorite bits of dialogue in television history, I'm not sure what it means in this context.

    Got my copy the other day. The studio tracks intended for his unreleased Mercury album are decent but nothing really special, on par with his ABC recordings from a year or two prior. The live recordings comprising the bulk of the running time are awesome though. This one really tears down the house:

    The webpage link that you posted specifically mentions that it is a CDR,

    When you see this citation, as on that page, that is what it means.

    "manufactured on demand" means CDR. It is authorized and licensed.

    CDRs can also be made in a factory, just with different media and different machines.

    From the amazon weblink you provided:

    Your comment is true. Sometimes when you see a very obscure title being reissued as new, one that is in low demand, you might suspect this is the case. They do not highlight the information.

    They also do not add the warning, which I think should be added:

    "For those few collectors who actually want this item, we know you will be unhappy that this is not what you call a real CD. You may wish to return it, so that is why we charge you the price of a real CD and do not offer full graphics."

    Postage has gone sky high for everyone, but your comment is certainly fair.

    Now that mail order has replaced local shopping everywhere, the shipping costs have escalated to the point where it is killing all commerce. I bought a CD from a European dealer last week for $2 equivalent, and the shipping was $12. I did buy it because it is a scarce disc.

    When I buy CDs in local used shops it is almost as if they are free, because the CD costs less than the cost of local shipping alone.

    I ordered 5 mini-LP CDs together in one order from a Japanese dealer (not through Amazon). The shipping on one CD was going to be $8, so I ordered a batch figuring they would bundle them and with a light weight pack (mini-LPs are light!) they would give a break on shipping. This was the type of dealer who would send you an invoice with shipping costs. They charged $40 shipping.

    Never again.

    They are killing commerce.

    Back when shipping a CD was 99 cents, I ordered on-line because it cost me more in gasoline to drive to a music store
