as far as I know, CAEDMON made their own recordings (see Robert Frost issues below), not reissues of Decca.
They did reissue EDNA ST.VINCENT MILLAY reading her works from RCA 78rpm album.

Best wishes, Thomas.

Caedmon TC 1523   92nd Street Y in New York City, 1950, 1951, 1952.
An old man's winter night
The oven bird
Fire and ice
The aim was song
The runaway
Stopping by woods on a snowy evening
The need of being versed in country things
Spring pools
Once by the Pacific
A soldier
On looking up by chance at the constellations
Two tramps in mud time
A drumlin woodchuck
Desert places
Not quite social
The hardship of accounting
Come in
The gift outright
It is almost the year two thousand
The secret sits
A case for Jefferson
A cabin in the clearing
Closed for good
America is hard to see
Does no one at all ever feel this way in the least?
A masque of reason.

Were these Robert Frost and Carl Sandburg records different from the records both men made for
Caedmon or was one a reissue of the other?

Mike Biel? What say you?
