Know sources out of print CD's? Kingston 3?

From: GaryD

I'm looking for sources of CD"s which are out of print. Specifically I'm looking for a double CD of the Kingston Trio String Along/Sold Out produced by Capitol about 1992. It is apparently no longer available, but someone out there may have a copy they will sell me, or know of a used record/CD company. One of you out there has offered to kindly record their mono records that that the CD came from, & I may have to go with that. But it would really be nice to get the CD, if possible.

It is for a friend who got me started playing & singing again & I owe him a lot.

For information, I did contact Tower Records who were not able to help, & I even have communicated with one of the present members of the trio itself & he was not able to help me with the old recordings... So, how about it? Any help? thanks, Gary

Have you tried Collector's Choice Music. They have a website you should be able to find on Yahoo or other searchers.

Check with the folks at Folk Era Records/Rediscover MUsic catalog. They may be able to direct you better.

Hi, Gary - the phone number for the Rediscover Music Catalogue is (800)232-7328. Their catalogue is a gold mine for Kingston Trio fans and 60's folkies. They don't have a reliable presence on the Web, but it's worth your while to call and request a catalogue. Their prices are a little high, but their selection is great.
Capitol took its four Kingston Trio two-fers out of production a while back (but I got a complete set), but the combination of "The Kingston Trio"/"From the Hungry i" is again available. the Capitol 4-CD set is nice, but I was hoping that they would reissue ALL the Capitol LP's as two-fers.
