Look at the Dutch and German sites.There is a triple 10" Record Store Day box set of Dave Brubeck Fantasy material.
I was looking at the list,and I see fifteen titles of possible interest,including the Pete Townshend Quadrophenia demos.

While I'm sure I know where you are coming from in your comment Cary, I
think that if the term "ARSCers" will always be defined as those who collect
recordings (including CDs) pressed before 1980 or so (or even before 2000)
then ARSC needs to broden its exposure to new collectors. We have folks like
Uncle Dave Lewis who give a classical music AND a punk rock paper at an
ARSC Conference (great jobs on both!) but not everyone is UDL. Are the folks
who really flock RSD ARSC member (and hence ARSCLIst member) possibilities?
I understand the 78-L listserve members (many who are here) but it seems
to me that we should be as diverse as the MLA listsefe - and, actually, more
sore since many of the MLA folks work with sound recordings as part of the
JOB and not hobby (and probably could care less about RSD).
What I thought was the dumbest RSD move was for Tompkins Square records to
press 500 78s and send to the stores. They probably could have produced
2,000 or more and sold them. They'd make a nice profit and collectors would
thank them. Instead those "resellers" who grabbed the 500 will put on eBay
and Tompkins Square won't see a penny. We only had one (out of of 6
independent record stores within blocks of my house) participate in RSD and they had
basically no "special product).
