Hmmm - that's an idea. The Naxos reissue has been completed just this month
and a boxed set is to follow. It's a year or two late, but ... well, we'll
see. I may even have some involvement in the set, but it's too early to
say. I can't picture BMG doing anything with the material - for one thing,
they cannot match Marston's transfers; for another, they already have an
incompetent set in their catalogue.
