    Since this was bumped up by Kenneth's eloquent review of the set, I thought I'd mention in passing that Caroline (the record company) never responded to my e-mail praising and thanking them for this set. Does anyone know how it has done sales-wise? Did anyone who e-mailed Caroline ever get a response/acknowledgement?

    Thanks for reading my post about the latest volume in the series.

    You know, it is unbelievable that no one has responded to the fans regarding this release, especially considering what a niche market this is. If she had any marketing sense, she would respond the way Gordon Anderson does of real gone music, or the way that our friends on the forum such as Harry, George, Keith and others respond to the fans’ questions and comments, no matter how specific to the individual user and listener.

    In this thread, earlier I had commented not to let their lack of response affect our purchase of this great set, but it is extremely irritating when you reach out to a company like that who has every resource at their disposal to respond, and they don’t even bother. They’re missing and alienating their target audience who holds the ability to make these releases successful or not.

    I've once more brought this to their attention although I have to say I have no more direct contact with the record company than you guys do - I agree just a courtesy - 'we've received your email' would have been something....

    Maybe Tammi Terrell (and the Monitors and Kim & Marvin) summed it up best: it's "Just Too Much To Hope For". In the end, the sales and our buying this set will say more than anything else-at least that seems to be the way in Corporate America. Courtesy seems to be slowly becoming a quaint notion of the past.

    Still, maybe once the pandemic is over, someone will finally acknowledge all the messages.

    Sorry guys I have a bit of a confession to make apparently Caroline UK do not monitor that address on the website info@caroline.com and have no knowledge of it and I do not know of a generic sales department email address which would reach them. I sent them a link from here and other fan sites so they could see the attention the release was getting to which they were very pleased. So all your efforts (thanks to me) were in vain but I appreciate your enthusiasm for the COM series and hope to be able to continue it somewhere in the 'nearer' future.

    Confession not necessary among Motown Swingers and Friends; I don't think anyone will fault you as far as whether or not the fans' emails were viewed. You are the bringer of amazing Motown gifts! Here's hoping good things for the "nearer" future.

    Paul, thank YOU for following up on this for us and getting an update. Glad to know they were pleased with the response to this release. Here's hoping that makes it possible for you to continue the series somewhere in the 'nearer' future!

    Well, @paul_nixon, I guess considering all the music you have found for us to enjoy, we have to forgive you!
