Oldies Albums That Have Not Seen A CD/Digital Release

I have been compiling a list of albums to the best of my knowledge that have never seen a CD or digital release. Anything official not including Jasmine records or any other label that has produced albums from vinyl. Basically anything from the 50's through to 1979 that was pop, R&B and Country. I know most of us here might not be into country but I have noticed a lot of Decca albums have never seen a CD/Digital release nor has many ABC and Mercury albums. I dont want to include Best Of's or Greatest Hits albums. If albums have been compiled into a box set I dont want to include those either. I am now aware that Bear Family has released all those early George Jones albums in a box set. Here is what I have so far:

Enrico LaRicca - Bengal Publishing

Can anyone shed some light on this 45 by Enrico LaRicca on the Ferko label that was published by Bengal Music? I'd also be curious to know more about the publishing arm - was Bengal actually owned by Berry Gordy?

I do know that the 45 was pressed in 1962 and that Enrico was from Detroit, he also has an album of what seems to also be Italian standards with no relation to Bengal/Berry Gordy/Motown. Seems like a weird record for Berry to be involved in.
