How is this classic album out of print and unavailable digitally?! One of Dolly's all-time best!! Includes the hit title track, "Sacred Memories," and "Highway Headin' South." Essential listening and a favorite among country fans.

I'd love to have these for digital download: "It's Only Rock 'N' Roll (1983)","Waylon And Company (1983)", "Never Could Toe The Mark (1984)", "Turn The Page (1985)", "Sweet Mother Texas (1986)", "The Best of Waylon (1986)". It seems the rest of his catalog has been released digitally.

I purchased and have been devouring the Dave Brubeck Quartet "Columbia Studio Albums" box set over the past year.  When that set was released a few years back, there was buzz that a DBQ live LP set would be coming out, too, but that buzz has disappeared, with no CD set on the horizon.  Those releases are gems, not only because of the musicianship of the DBQ, but also because of the amazing technical prowess of Columbia's remote recording engineers -- for half-century old reels, the sound is incredible, clear, and electric, capturing the live energy of the band and the crowd with a "you are there" immediacy.

A complete digital release of the DBQ live albums is long overdue.  I'd particularly appreciate it if priority were given to those that never received a CD release in the US, such as "The Dave Brubeck Quartet in Europe," "Brubeck in Amsterdam," and "The Last Time We Saw Paris."

Many thanks for your efforts to open the sonic treasures of the vaults!

This 1967 LP was recorded during the final tour of the "classic lineup" of the Dave Brubeck Quartet (Dave Brubeck, Paul Desmond, Joe Morello, and Gene Wright).  By all accounts, it is an fantastic slice of live DBQ jazz, with all four musicians in fine form (e.g., see the AllMusic.com review), but was never released on CD.  I've been on a Brubeck buying binge over the last year, but this album is nowhere to be found (not even in a Sony Japan release)!  There is always fairly active DBQ discussion over at the SteveHoffman.tv message boards, so I expect that this release would find a ready audience.  Many thanks!
