Thanks for all the "thanks." Please note that, to the best of my knowledge, not a single album that I have uploaded is in-print or has been in-print for a month of Sundays. Bit of a sad commentary on the current state of the record industry, doncha think?

Thanks Bill,

Most of them have been out of print for between 40 and 55 years, which would make it 6 to 7 YEARS of Sundays.

The "blockbuster" mentality of the American business model has done nothing but suppress creativity and diversity. You won't see reissues from the country that created this music unless it can go to the top of the charts. The companies with a strong reissue ethic have folded down to greatest hit compilations (e.g. Prestige)unless the market is big (Miles Davis).

Keep going, Dr Chilledair!
