    Although it's human nature for a music lover to be a completist and to want more, we must take time each day to treasure the previous box sets and collections released by BF through the years. After all, the BF titles of tomorrow might not be possible if not for the BF titles of yesterday.

    The current dilemma for many dedicated BF customers here in North America is that new converts and longtime buyers are facing "sticker shock," due to the abnormal price increases in our neck of the woods. More recently, this has been an ongoing concern for BF and customers in our neck of the woods, but I'm 100% confident that BF will thoroughly analyze the situation and resolve any and all issues in the near future.

    Mychael, you're an amazing artist and a wealth of knowledge in the world of this music we appreciate and love so dearly. I look up to you with great respect and feel honored by your presence everyday on this online community. When you share behind the scenes photos and news on projects, my heart literally skips a beat.

    You folks make me proud to be a Bear Family loyalist. Bear Family truly is the "Gold standard" for all reissue releases. I can't imagine life without Bear Family. Hands-down, Bear Family are the greatest record label in the entire world.

    I hope the label does well, although I'm not a fan of vinyl-only releases. Having bought vinyl for several decades, I like cds and have no desire to buy vinyl records. In looking at the RWA site, it looks like several good titles are vinyl-only. This is too bad.

    Mychael, hope you don't stop posting. I don't always agree with you but I do listen to what you say and I do believe your statements that involve facts. You know whats going on there and I appreciate the info you provide. Don't take anybodies comments personal. Remember we are all looking at this from different places so we see what we see differently many times.

    I've been wanting to tell you that the artwork/layout for the Michigan box is excellent. It really adds to the enjoyment of the music. I especially like the period photos that show parts of the state with houses, autos and just everyday things that have changed or disappeared since the 50s and 60s. I don't have my box right here so I can't look it up but is the lady listed as doing editing a relative? Thanks for your info and comments and I hope you are swamped with work you want to do.

    It may be cheaper to buy one of the cd box set from Bear Family where it is included.;)

    Good spot, that's a definite order for me, I've got a nice Asian issue from a few years back with extra tracks but this looks great, on Ace too.

    john lennonist There ONCE was a NOTE, PURE and EASY...

    I loves me some Gene Vincent (one of my three or four fave early rockers) and I just got the single disc (30 Track) "Gene Rocks" CD :righton:

    It's from 2010... I'm hopeful that it will have the same great sound quality that many here have raved about re Bear Family.

    You should try calling Cheapo Records in Cambridge Mass to see if they have it. When you call, have the Bear Family catalog number ready because that is the way they organize their stock. If they have it, it may be a trick to get them to ship it, but first see if they have it. If they have it, it would be priced as original stock.

    If anyone wants the two Bob Wills sets for $80 each, call Stereo Jacks in Cambridge Mass. He has them, plus the Louvin Bros and Marvin Rainwater. Excellent prices. They were there one hour ago. He is open Sunday too

    Largely agreed. To me, my records and player are like a classic car: I'll be sure take it out for a spin on weekends, but it's not for everyday use. With some of those RWA vinyl releases like Frankie Miller and Billy Mize, I suppose there's so little material that a CD version would be considered preposterously short.

    Svein, is the George Jones on this THE George Jones ? I believe I read somewhere it wasn't.

    Thanks

    Is that Larry Jordan? I would not consider dealing with that offensive bootlegger

    Unfortunately, I learned that Jack does not ship box sets. Walk-ins only.

    That's the same situation with their release many years ago of THE NASHVILLE ALL-STARS "Live After The Riot At Newport". This was a RCA lp from 1960 with Chet Atkins, Hank Garland, Floyd Cramer, Gary Burton, and a couple others. It's a fun cd. Short, but fun.

    That's too bad. That price for the 2 Bob Wills set is worth driving to Boston for. Great sets.

    This is not Larry Jordans site.:disgust:
    It is Arie Den Dulk from Holland.
    He has been helping Bear Family on every release with Jim Reeves.Look more on the site many interesting things to read about.

    Boston may be the number one Bear Family town in the USA. That seems strange in a way, but I am pretty sure it is true. Definitely much more here over many years than in New York. I have definitely seen way more BF for sale here (used and new) than I ever saw in Nashville
