Steppin’ Out CD

All of the other threads about Steppin’ Out appear to be closed so I’ll pose my question here.

I’m gradually collecting all of Herb’s CDs on the Herb Alpert Presents label.
Ordered Steppin’ Out from Amazon Canada and though the description says the label is HAP, the disc I received is actually on Shout! Factory.
Is this what others have experienced?
Maybe they’re blowing out old stock?

Hi Blair and welcome to the forum my guess is that there are some leftover unsold shout factory stockpiles that exist and as of a few years ago Herbs deal with Shout Ended and newer copies are now released by HAP I have steppin out on shout factory which is the original first release so you have an original version of the aforementioned album on CD so rejoice the shout versions being sold now are generally more expensive ( as I've seen on Amazon and other places)

When the big Herb Alpert Presents CD program got under way back at the end of 2015, I had resigned to buying everything all over again. I had all of the Shout product and all of the A&M product, so there was very little that I actually needed. But in the interest of being a completist, I just had to have it all. Well, almost all.

I drew the line at the later (2000+) albums that I already had through Shout and Concord. These were all too new to require any work in the studio in the way of remastering. So, my copies of ANYTHING GOES, and I FEEL YOU, come from Concord Jazz. STEPPIN' OUT and IN THE MOOD are from Shout! Factory, and everything after that is just Herb Alpert Presents.

I'm not even sure that those four albums really were ever issued by Herb Alpert Presents. Discogs doesn't show a separate Herb Alpert Presents label, but it's possible that so few have purchased those over again that no-one has uploaded the information to Discogs.

Perhaps our @Steve Sidoruk has some information on these.

Since I don't see STEPPIN' OUT on this list, then I might conclude that STEPPIN' OUT has not had a pure HAP release and that the Shout! version is all that there is. (?)

I saw on Amazon you can also still buy a download of STEPPIN OUT too Very interesting since I saw second wind passion dance and colors also availible for download too at least when I checked a couple days ago

On Spotify, the "Steppin' Out" album is "© 2015 Herb Alpert Presents". I'm guessing that the HAP release is digital only, at least for now. That could change in future, I suppose, once the remaining inventory of Shout! CDs is gone.

A closer look at the Shout Factory Steppin’ Out reveals that the bar code on the back has been carefully covered by a sticker with the number 814647021034 which fits right in with the numbering sequence shown in Steve’s list.
So it appears Herb Alpert Presents used Shout Factory stock for this HAP release.
I’ll try and find an actual HAP version, assuming such a thing exists

I just received my copies of 'steppin' out' and 'In The Mood' from amazon (Wednesday, March 27th). They are both from Shout Factory with pasted over white sticker bar codes.

'steppin' out' states, on the spine, product code 82663-14605 with the pasted over bar code of 8 14647 02103 4.
'In The Mood' states, on the spine, SF 15522 with the pasted over bar code of 8 14647 02107 2.

Both state: Herb Alpert Presents, Inc. under license to Shout! Factory LLC.

Having worked in the record business, it's not unusual that a label might buy up its old, licensed inventory and re-sell them with such a pasted on bar code, rather than have the licensee destroy such inventory. It's a bit confusing to us customers when the new label reissues most of its licensed product under its own moniker and then does something like what HAP did with these two examples. On top of that, there's also those couple of albums that HAP has chosen not to reissue. I understand, and appreciate, that Herb can choose what he wants to do with his own catalog and we just have to live with those decisions.

In addition to my previous post, if you follow the pattern of the bar codes on HAP releases, I believe that 'steppin out' is now HAP 103 and 'In The Mood' is HAP 107. I certainly don't mind if anyone feels I'm incorrect and would correct my assumption.
