    If you don’t have the Columbia Cash box I highly recommend those sets. If you do have it you still need the Bear box covering the Sun era. I have no intention of ever letting go of my Bear Cash boxes. Beyond essential.

    You should not have to mail in the defective DVD. It would cost me more to mail a disc to Germany than the DVD is worth. If Bear Family demands that, they have very poor customer relations. There will not be any flood of fake requests.

    i've never had to send anything back to them, I always send a picture of what the problem is. They have terrific customer service and have never let me down.

    I usually email them and tell them the problem I am having with a picture of what I have and they take care of it. They know there was a problem already. Their email address is on their website towards the bottom.

    I would just write to them and see if that is adequate. If it is not, that is poor customer service. Bear Family should not demand that their customers be able to take and transmit digital images. Many BF collectors don't get involved with technology.

    Also remember that the "Columbia Complete Albums" box has the albums that are covered by the Bear Family boxes in mono. In the four BF sets they're in stereo. Most of the outtakes dug up by Bear Family are collected in Legacy's "Cash Bootleg" series.

    That BF set surprised me good! Never thought I'd live to see the day. Hearing Herman's Hermits in remixed stereo gives me goosebumps!

    I have quite a few "Gonna Shake This Shack Tonight" compact discs, and I simply adore them! I love the uptempo and fun side of vintage country music. Tapping my feet and smiling ear to ear as I listen to these releases, it's fun to hear and happily observe where much of rock 'n' roll got its humble beginnings. Granted R&R drew its influences from other genres of music, especially jumpin' blues, but IMO uptempo country played a huge part in its development too.

    Anyway, "Gonna Shake This Shack Tonight" righteously rocks! I don't simply own them, I cherish them!

    Bear Family can release the Beatles HELP album in original stereo sound.Nobody has done that yet.If you are gonna get it with original stereo sound like it was released in 1965 you got a hard job to find it.
    It was released with original stereo sound on a wooden box released in Australia in late 80s/early 90s.Now an extremely rare collectrs CDbox.I am always searching for a HELP cd with the original stereo sound from 1965.Even the Beatles stereo box digitally remastered by George Martin did the sound wrong.Why not the original sound from 1965 and new remastered sound on same CD?:cussing:

    I thought the original stereo mix of "HELP" was included in the '09 mono CD box.

    My belief is that Bear Family will never be able to obtain significant licensing for such artists as The Beatles, Elvis, Sinatra, etc

    True. However, as they have proven with Herman’s Hermits, they can do a set and do it well. Why not British groups such as The Animals, Dave Clark Five, The Searchers, Gerry and The Pacemakers, Cilla Black, Billy J. Kramer with The Dakotas, Manfred Mann, The Merseybeats, Peter and Gordon, Yardbirds, The Swinging Blue Jeans, etc. Or what about a killer multi disc box set covering the British Beat Boom from 1963-1966? Or a set focusing just on the Merseybeat groups from Liverpool. Or a Beat at the BEEB set covering groups at the BBC. Lots of possibilities and if anyone can do it right, it would be Bear Family.

    Here’s a great list of the most well known British beat groups of the era.

    Bear Family declined an offer from RCA/Sony to handle the Elvis reissue program (that job eventually went to Mr. Jorgensen). Richard Weize said, "I couldn't see myself dedicating ten years to an artist I don't like THAT much..."

    As for the British groups – Bear Family has just started a new series, "The Brits Are Rocking". Fingers crossed that it stretches up to the mid-60s.
