PJ said:Hi All,
PJ said:Following this thread , a " Complete TJB / Alpert Recordings" is a great idea, BUT ...too bulky and far too costly for anyone except die hard fans.
PJ said:Alpert Solo and other projects would be best on a 3 CD set.
PJ said:Rhino would be a great company for these releases , anyone except the majors and NOT UNIVERSAL......!
Tim Neely said:Someone else mentioned the Citizen Steely Dan box. As "complete" as it supposedly is, it is missing their first two songs, "Dallas" and "Sail the Waterway," a single issued before "Do It Again."
Tim Neely said:I think the most likely label to do TJB CDs would be Collector's Choice Music. The TJB doesn't seem to fit into Sundazed's bag, and they aren't "jazz" enough for Mosaic, probably.
Rudy said:Were these two songs on ABC? Sounds like something I'll have to look for. There is a lot of pre-Steely Dan material out there, but a lot of it is very rough demos. I have a couple of those early ones, but can't say I listen to them hardly at all.
Mike Blakesley said:Neil - That Doobies box set is a winner. Great booklet (thick!) with complete credits, 2 essays, etc. The "rarities" are better than average too. The whole thing is very nicely done, topped off with classy understated artwork.
