Sorry can't answer your questions, but early on they seem to have
items from Everest and Interstate (UK), blues from Fire/Fury, and lots
of RnR & DooWop.
They also have a series from Stinson Records (possibly by way of
which are currently being unloaded for about $4.
Quite a few years ago they were criticised for lousy remastering in
the columns of Goldmine,
but supposedly cleaned up their act.
Currently they license from major labels, many jazz and pop titles
which are very nice to be able to get (Lee Wiley, Condon, et.al.). I
are also RCA titles and things from Colpix.
They seem to retail through "Nina's Discount Oldies".
Have you tried phoning or writing them directly? Please share any
information you obtain. Thanks.
Best wishes, Thomas.
