    Thanks for the info. Even though I have all of these cds, it will be nice to have the set. Plus David Nathan always writes very informative notes.

    You should be ashamed of yourself!!!!!!!!! Giving an old man a heart attack on a cold and foggy Friday afternoon! Of course the real pain may come when we see a price tag for this package!

    As reese just said, I already have just about everything on here but it will still be nice to have it all in one comprehensive package. As I have often mentioned on here, I am in the minority when it comes to preferring Dionne's Arista material over her earlier stuff, so this will be a delight for me to have.

    You have to admit that she has received some incredible re-issue treatment from all her labels and even though this might pretty much wrap up her recording output, I hope this is a sign that other artists will continue to receive this kind of respect, even if their careers are winding down or over. Keep those CDs coming and of course as I have said before, keep making cars with CD players in them!!!

    I was so caught up in reading the excellent description of this set that I did not notice the price. Would you guys guess that would come out to around $80-90 in US funds? If so, that sounds manageable.

    Also will this only be available through that one source or will it show up on Dusty Groove, Import CDs and other sources so that one can compare prices?

    If I converted correctly, the price was 49 pounds which ends up being about 64 dollars. That seems cheap for 12 cds though.

    I love all of these CDs and have them already. But not all of the bonus tracks. I don't think $60 is too much if Dionne gets any royalties on this collection. She just celebrated her 79th birthday and still has an extensive touring schedule in front of her.

    Hmmm interesting. Thanks for sharing! I always thought it was unfortunate that no one has done a box set on Dionne and now she's finally getting one...and my favourite era, the Arista years. I'm curious how this set will be packaged ...likely individual cardboard slipcases of the original album artwork? I'm also curious if there are other unreleased tracks from the Arista era or if this is it? I thought there were more outtakes from Heartbreaker. I'll have to go over the tracklisting in more detail to see what bonus tracks haven't been released yet..as the bonus stuff on the Brazil album came out on Tropical Love and some others on the PBS exclusive cd. Nice to see everything gathered together and may be worth it for the remastering and price tag alone!

    I see that this collection is being marketed in all the usual places, not just by Cherry Red. I have seen prices anywhere from $49.00 US to over $100.00. So as the time gets closer, let's work together and keep one another informed on where the best prices are found.
