Thread Name: Custom CDs (Folktrax,Topic, Folk-Legacy)
Subject: RE: Custom CDs (Folktrax,Topic, Folk-Legacy)
Hi, Steves - if by "custom CD," you mean CDs recorded to your specifications, I don't know of any company that does this. But Smithsonian Folkways, Rounder, Topic, and Folk-legacy have remastered many old recordings and will burn them to a disc for you on demand, it they don't have them in stock.
Smithsonian Folkways has remastered its entire catalog for CD, and Folk-Legacy has almost completed remastering its complete catalog. Rounder and Topic are catching up, but are coming out with new reissues all the time.
Jean Redpath and Lisa Neustadt did three legendary albums (2 gospel, 1 Christmas) for Rounder's Philo label. I wrote to them a couple of times, asking them to reissue these albums; and they said they didn't have funding. Well, two of the three albums came back this year.
