The Complete Columbia Albums Collection

Postby bob64 » Mon Jan 07, 2013 10:25 pm

Does anybody know if there are future plans to re-release this set. The few that are available are extortionately priced. Sadly, for various reasons, I did not get it at the time and have lived to rue the day.

Bob - Do you mean Leonard's "Complete Studio Albums" (remastered) collection? It's about £25.00 on Amazon - approx. two quid for each album - not exactly extortionate!

No, the one I mean is the 17 CD set that includes the live albums. I am well aware of the 11 CD set.

Hi
This was a limited edition and I'm not aware of any rereleases... Quite a few people have asked me about it privately, but I had to disappoint them I'm afraid...

Bob - I woudn't slit your wrists over it! I've lived happily with the original live albums for the past 40 years.

Hi
In case someone is still looking for this 17 cd box set:
http://www.benl.ebay.be/itm/40089576265 ... 1423.l2649

Bidding is at 30 USD right now, but I guess it will get higher... They used to sell these boxes for over 200 USD...

Sorry to resurrect an old thread, but I recently found this set second hand, and I was quite surprised to see that the box that holds the CDs is quite flimsy, thin cardboard. A bit unexpected since this was supposed to have been a limited issue collector's item. I have the Studio Albums set as well and the box there is quite sturdy and thick by comparison.
