    That's great news! My family will be glad to hear that there'll be no more night shifts and weekend work.

    I’m already saving up for Connie Smith. Is the Rich-R-Tone set on the plans for this year?

    Assuming the rumour of a second Brenda Lee box is correct, what tapes were you planning to use if Brenda had hers destroyed in the fire at Universal almost 12 years ago?

    The Richard Weize Christmas CD’s are great! Apparently there’s another one from RWA entitled Christmas Up North, which I haven’t heard. The RWA albums plus Bear Family’s Have Yourself A Swingin’ Little Christmas were all in heavy rotation ’round these parts this past season.

    No, I said assuming the rumour in this thread is correct. I didn’t make a statement, I asked a question of possibility.

    I think Bear Family needs to invest again in Jazz and launch a Box covering Nancy Wilson's first decade of career.

    Please give us a heads up when it’s published! I’ll need to go out of my way to fetch a copy.

    Christmas Up North is absolutely essential for Canadian oldies collectors, and a fun listen for anyone else. What sets it apart is that all of the selections are original songs, without any retreads of Christmas standards.

    A Bear Family box with the 4 Star recordings of Maddox Brothers and Rose would be great. Some of it appeared on Arhoolie CDs but a Bear Family update with their complete early output would be nice (to complement their Columbia BF box) : Praguefrank's Country Discography 2: Rose Maddox

    It’d be nice if they reprinted their other box on them, too. I lent mine years ago like a fool and it never returned.

    Amazon has the Fats Domino box for $263 shipping in 1-2 months.
    The previous Out of New Orleans box is up to $655 (glad I got mine when it was new).

    There are (at least) two amazon.com listings for Out of New Orleans - the other has it for $300 new ($125 used).

    At this point, there really is no reason to get the old set - the new set is bigger and better. (And, obviously, you should pick one up from bim-bam.com (or elsewhere) ASAP. The box might be back in print one day, it might not, so grab it while you still can.)

    I assumed the Arhoolie CDs contained all their surviving 4 Star material, don't they? Regardless, I'd love if BF could do anything to improve the sound quality of those releases.

    Just ordered from bim-bam. The web site sure looks sketchy. Thanks for the tip (I think).

    Amazon USA is notorious for listing items that they will never receive
