Subject: LPs you wish were CDs
From: GUEST,Mike in DC
Date: 16 Feb 08 - 07:53 PM

Number 1 on my list would be The Blues Project, an Elektra LP from the sixties that was mentioned on the recent Ian Buchanan thread. In addition to IB's Winding Boy, the album contained multiple songs by the likes of John Koerner, Geoff Muldauer and Dave Ray. For some reason it's never been released on CD. Anyone else have a favorite from the past that has never made it to CD? And for those of you who know more than I about the record business - which is most of you I'll bet - what goes into the decision to re-release an old album in a new format? And is there any way we can influence that decision?

Mike

There were 2 albums (Avenue Road and Aardvark) by a Toronto band called Kensington market. Far as I know there has never been a cd copy released ... the vinyl versions are now probably held by collectors who would only release them at a premium.

The other is a collection of Jimmy Webb songs by Richard Harris called the "Yard went on Forever".

I still have quite a few LPs around that have never made it onto CD, although a few have started showing up as digital downloads, skipping the CD stage altogether.

My favorite one hasn't made it to CD or download, as far as I know: "La Ronde des Voyageurs", by the Quebecois group Eritage.

This was actually on Stan Rogers' Fogerty's Cove label, and most of his own LPs are now available as CDs, but for some reason, this one was never made available.

Luckily, one of the band members posted the whole album online, and you can listen to it here:

La Ronde des Voyageurs - Eritage

I've made my own rather inexpert CD version, and would be happy to buy a better quality commercial CD if one becomes available. (I still sometimes listen to the LP as well, when I'm not being lazy!) But I don't want it out on CD only for my own sake, but because I want more people to discover it and know about it.

Surely the greatest omission is the Leader catalogue, whose output included the Percy Grainger recordings, the Masters of Irish Music series, plus various solo Lps of singers like Eddie Butcher, John Maguire, Walter Pardon, Cecilia Costello, George Dunn, the Copper Family and Jack Elliott. And that's not to mention some very fine LPs of American musicians and singers, plus the Edith Fowke edited compilation, Far Canadian Fields.

Unfortunately, Leader went under in the oil crisis of the 1970s, the catalogue was sold, and practically nothing from that catalogue has been seen from that day to this. A whole chunk musical heritage obliterated.

Gurney- Nowt So Good Will Pass is available on CD

There's a pretty good representation of Cisco Houston on "Cisco Houston:The Vanguard Years" and "Cisco Houston: The Folkways Years"

All available from CAMSCO, of course.

I've just had a quick shuftie at the Walter Pardon entries on my database. MT used none of the Leader recordings for their release. However, it shows fourteen Topic tracks (10 on A World without Horses. 4 on Voice of the People) which were recorded by Bill Leader, some of them with Peter Bellamy. It would need a closer inspection than I can give it at the moment. However, of these fourteen tracks, a number of titles duplicate what's on the two Leader LPs. It may be though that they are different takes to the ones on the LPs and this is something I can't check.

I did though notice two different recordings of the Female Drummer, one on Topic and one on Leader. The Topic take is dated 03.08.74 while the Leader is 12.02.77. Ditto for The Pretty Ploughboy. TSCD 514 was 08.06.74, while LED 2111 was 12.02.77.

The next time I see Reg Hall I'll ask him.

Guest Mike in DC - I remember the Blues Project LP, a friend owned it back in the 60s - great stuff. The one I'd really like on CD now is it's sister CD also on Elektra called The String Band Project. It had some superb tracks by people like Uncle Willie and the Brandy Snifters and Stu Jamieson's Boys. It did a great deal to turn me on to Old Time music a loooong time ago, and totally changed my life.

The Old Time String Band Project


Collectors'Choice Music, a catalog operation, has been reissuing in limited runs some of the older Elektra material from time to time. Maybe writing them would help light a fire under them for issue of these. The Rhino label has also reissued from the Elektra vaults and in recent years, they've had Tom Rush, Gibson & Camp, Bikel, Brand, Josh White, Cathy & Carol and others get limited pressings. Let these two companies, Rhino and Collector's Choice know that there's a need.

Thanks for the information on Collectors' Choice Music and Rhino. This
confirms my memory that one of the albums was called The Old Time Banjo Project. When Banjo Ray brought up The Old Time String Band Project, I thought he might be referring to the same record, but none of the people he mentioned as being on that album - Uncle Willie and the Brandy Snifters and Stu Jamieson's Boys - is listed on Old Time Banjo. So the only way to clear this up is for the Powers That Be to release them both - along with The Blues Project - on CD.

here's another one ... boy these are are really jumping up from deep down in my memory ..... "Circus Maximus' by Circus Maximus. One of the members of this band was Jerry Jeff Walker.

I should have never left my vinyl record collection in the care of my sister.

I'll second BatGoddess' suggestion of the Frankie Armstrong LP, Out of Love, Hope, and Suffering. I recently put to air a whole program of tracks from LPs that have never made it to CD, and I played a cut from that album. Also Hadden, Rothfield and Carr; Declan Affley; Dennis Tracey; Tracey, Munro, Tracey; Art Thieme (I guess some of Art's back-catalog is out on CD, but not all of it); Billy Edd Wheeler; Bill Davis; and the Debby McClatchy album, Lady Luck.

The full list of what I played is in the thread, streaming folk program from Sydney

Ewan MacColl and A.L. lloyd, "Whaling Ballads."Originally recorded in the 50's, it's last appearance on LP was in the early 70's on the now defunct Washington label. It was the album that made me fall in love with sea music, and remains my alltime favorite sea music recording. Peggy Seeger does banjo accompaniment on some tracks, and there's a harmonica player whose playing is so precise, it could be easily mistaken for a concertina playing single notes (can't remember the name. I think it was listed with a first initial, then last name). I used to check it out of the public library, but it was eventually discontinued, or maybe stolen or damaged beyond repair, I don't know. I never found it anywhere else, until I joined Mudcat, and Liam's Brother kindly taped it for me after I mentioned it in a thread about 7 years ago.
This is a completely different recording than "Blow Boys Blow," or Lloyd's "Leviathan!" which are available on CD.
