Thomas, This is to the best of my knowledge, and hope it helps. The company that was re-issuing the Everest Classical on disc in the 1990s was an Australian company called Omega, whereas the pop came through the Welk Group, who for some reason also had the PDQ Bach product. Nonetheless, Bernie Solomon retained some interest in Everest, as CD re-issues of ex-Everest material from both pop and classical catalogues appeared variably on CD through Bescol, Laserlight, Boston Skyline, DCC and possibly other imprints. These were one off arrangements set up through Bernie, and I think Bescol may even have been his company. Hard to say, as I could never get the guy who sold them to me out of the back of his car to tell me where these ultra-cheap products came from. Omega is no longer re-issuing Everest and may not even still be trading at this point. Bernie Solomon passed away, and I believe that the company that is now Artemis Records in New York purchased both Everest and Vanguard. Bernie lived in Woodland Hills, and his tape vault suffered heavy damage in the Northridge earthquake of 1994, so if your interest entails something specific that Everest issued, the master tape may, or may not, still exist.

Hail to the prophets!" - Ferruccio Busoni, 1924 -----Original Message----- From: Association for Recorded Sound Discussion List [mailto:[log in to unmask]] On Behalf Of Thomas Stern Sent: Thursday, July 14, 2005 1:06 PM To: [log in to unmask] Subject: [ARSCLIST] Everest Records / Tradition Records reissues I've noticed recent releases from VI MUSIC and EMPIRE MUSIC WERKS of LP's from TRADITION RECORDS (folk/blues), and EVEREST RECORDS (jazz titles). For a while Tradition had been owned by RYKO, which issued them along with titles from the Everest Music Group catalogue. Does anyone know who these new labels are, do they work from master tapes, and will they be releasing any of the Everest Classical recordings? I believe the Everest classical material had been issued by company which had been releasing Vanguard Classics (not the Welk Group) - is that still functioning? Thanks! Best wishes, Thomas.
