I do not think that Greenwood has anymore interest in publishing
discographies, nor is interested in producing CD-ROMs. The idea of
transferring that Mercury work to CD-ROM is a good one,of course ,as
it seems the way to go nowadays. As for myself, I have stockpiled
large amounts of details on many Mercury artists, which outdate the
printed work, and a new publication,in my opinion, should be an
updated version. That requires a great amount of work, which I am
unable to do at this time: I am involved in other projects, like a
forthcoming version of Atlantic (updated) on CD-ROM, in the vein of
what I made on Capitol,ABC and Blue Note labels in the past years.
If some dedicated person appears be ready to go with updating
Mercury, that would be a true challenge, and I would assist him (her)
with my files.
