Thread Name: Stingy CD Reissues - why so few cuts?
Subject: RE: Stingy CD Reissues - why so few cuts?
I like my CD's full, Sandy. 45 minutes is OK, but I feel cheated if I get much less. I really feel ripped off when I get a 2-CD set, and find the two albums would fit on one CD. The Willie Nelson "IRS Tapes" album was one, but not the only one that Columbia did like that. It seems that most folk CD's are 45-60 minutes or longer - a much better bargain than the pop and country stuff.
The Bok-Muir-Trickett CD's are some of my favorites, by the way. I'd sure like to see those two Art Thieme LP's on a CD. Folk-Legacy has all sorts of recordings I'd love to buy - but not on cassette or LP. Bring 'em on, Sandy! (but be generous)
