    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:

    We have previously discussed the reasons for the Aretha Atlantic albums. They may eventually appear.

    YES!! As you probably know there was a rumored Stars cd several years ago but our girl had it looked into and wisely shut it down - 'twas a black-market kinda thing.

    I would love to see some of the END albums rereleased on CDs. To the best of my knowledge none have ever been.

    Some great examples are:

    END 301 Chantels
    END 302 Rock and Roll Jamboree [Little Anthony & Imperials; Chantels; Dubs;
    Ronnie Baxter; Jo-Ann Campbell; Eddie Platt & Orchestra; Buddy Lucas
    and the Gone All Stars.
    END 303 The Imperials featuring Little Anthony
    END 304 Flamingo Serenade
    END 305 Battle of the Groups, Vol. 1: Flamingos; Isley Bros; Imperials; Dubs.
    END 309 Battle of the Groups, Vol. 2: Imperials; Flamingos; Chantels; Dubs.

    These are all GREAT albums which were very popular at the time they were released. Most of them were released on the END label and nearly all rereleased on the Roulette label after they absorbed the END label.

    Lol yes I seem to remember that as well! Cher doesn't seem to speak favourably of these albums that she did for Warner. There have been some bootlegs out there on CD, both individual disc versions and a threefer set.

    A few more to add to the list...

    Kim Weston:

    For the First Time (1966)
    Johnny Nash & Kim Weston (1969)
    Big Brass Four Poster (1970)

    It seems that her This Is America LP is now available digitally.

    How could I forget...

    Mary Wilson (1979)

    As much as many tend to talk-down this album, this one is very much on my wishlist

  13. #13
    All the Hodges, James and Smith albums in one package would be nice but I believe someone on here said that has been discussed but may never happen.
