Stern's 100th birthday would be July 21, 1920.
Surely Sony will give us a Complete Album Collection.
more likely they will try to SELL it.
PS it's still strange to me how many posters here only get excited about
huge multidisc reissues of old material.
If we think of recording as a matter of preservation for future generations,
then it makes sense.
For those of you with kids: how many of your kids are lying back
thinking about your 5000 to 10000 CD collections thinking: "some day
this will all be mine!"
LOL! More than likely, they are lying back thinking, "some day this will be mine to get rid of, damn it!"
As I have said before, the only guilt I have regarding having amassed a
collection approaching 11,000 CDs (much more, considering multiple CD
sets), is the that someone will have to dispose of it after I die. This
is likely to be my poor wife who only barely tolerates my compulsion.
Maybe her anger over having to do this chore will overcome her grief.
I've left her instructions to contact Princeton Record Exchange who a
few year ago told me they would send a truck, pack up the collection in
pay me around $2 per disk. That might be a ripoff, but as I will be
dead, I don't thin I will care. Of course that option might not
beavailable at the time, given how businesses her shutting down left and
right. My 9 first cousins jointly own a grave in a cemetery in New
Jersey. Maybe we can bury the CDs there, thought I don't think 6 feet
will be deep enough.
