Um… spoiler alert? ;)
It's true. Even more important than being under one roof, it's a environment controlled, archival grade roof that they are all under. Hallelujah.
The 75 year clock started from that shady "30th Anniversary" advertisement (see above) which also mentions Stinson's split with Moses Asche.
And deja vu, the “unauthorized” 1995 Collectables series (see also above) was released, in good faith no doubt, because the same folks thought they had it all in hand back then. Missed it by that much.
I doubt another rights holder/next-of-kin will show however, I would not be the least surprised if more masters, stampers or transcription discs should turn up. We should be so unlucky!
But we're getting way ahead of ourselves here. In the 1920-30s Moses Asche; Milt Gabler, Marshall Stearns &c are teenagers geeking out in old man Stinson's record store and George Avakian is still in knee pants.
