with the holidays coming,there are a lot of great box sets to look forward to.Another one I am interested in is the Chicago ‘Complete Carnegie Hall’ set.It’s a huge,16-CD set (!) that contains all 8 shows that they performed there in 1972.It was delayed a bit and will now be released on September 10.

Are any of you looking forward to any upcoming releases? What’s on your Christmas lists? biggrin

The Little Rascals: The ClassicFlix Restorations, Vol. 3 (blu-ray)
release: October 19, 2021

Remastered, uncut, and beautifully restored, now you can see The Little Rascals like never before! With restorations so glorious, it will be like watching these iconic shorts for the first time!

From 1929 to 1931, Hal Roach's "Our Gang" series showcasing scruffy but lovable kids was among the studio's biggest successes in the new era of sound. But in 1932, the franchise would introduce one of the most beloved and durable members of the gang in George "Spanky" McFarland—so named because of his mother's constant admonitions of "Mustn't touch! Spanky, spanky!"

Director James Horne, having shot a reel's worth of test footage of the youngster (later recycled in Spanky [1932]), showed it to anyone and everyone on the Roach lot, and shortly afterward, "Spanky" made his modest debut in Free Eats (1932). But Roach, recognizing the cuteness and natural talent of McFarland, immediately promoted the three-year-old to major player status by titling the next short after the tot and using his allure for maximum mirth in classic outings like The Pooch, Hook & Ladder and Birthday Blues—all made in 1932 and all included in this set.

The Little Rascals - The ClassicFlix Restorations, Volume 3 contains the next 11 Our Gang sound shorts produced by Roach at the dawn of the "talkie era": Readin' and Writin' (1932) to Forgotten Babies (1933)—with each short newly scanned and restored from original Hal Roach 35mm film elements.

A must-have for any true Our Gang fan, Volume 3 features the talents of Dickie Moore, Bobby "Wheezer" Hutchins, Dorothy DeBorba, Matthew "Stymie" Beard, Kendall "Breezy Brisbane" McComas, and of course, George "Spanky" McFarland. This volume also includes a special treat with Our Gang alums Mickey Daniels, Mary Kornman, Joe Cobb and Allen “Farina” Hoskins featured in Fish Hooky (1933)!

SHORTS:

1932
Readin' and Writin'
Free Eats
Spanky
Choo-Choo!
The Pooch
Hook and Ladder
Free Wheeling
Birthday Blues
A Lad an' a Lamp

1933
Fish Hooky
Forgotten Babies

You can take a black guy to Nashville from right out of the cotton fields with bib overalls, and they will call him R&B. You can take a white guy in a pin-stripe suit who’s never seen a cotton field, and they will call him country. ~ O. B. McClinton

It’s just a shame that the Commodores’ catalog is being neglected.It's not like their music wasn’t popular.They were HUGE in the late 70s! I can name numerous lesser bands and artists who have big,multi-disc box sets on the market lol


Motown probably thinks most people would be content with the 2cd Commodores “Gold” comp.
If this makes sense, they probably perceive the Commodores fan base as WIDE but not DEEP, in that most fans want the hits but relatively little interest in b-sides and remixes and unreleased tracks.

Spectrum U.K. (a Universal level) often puts out budget box sets, collecting 5 original albums on CD .... I wonder if they ever did a Commodores set ?

[Edited 9/5/21 22:53pm]



I think Sony would do well to reissue the 10 CD Philly 40th Annivesary box set and add on a couple more discs of 12" mixes & previously unreleased material. According to the liner notes on the original box set, there is a wealth of vault material that still hasnt seen the light of day. I would be more interested in that instead of these over priced sets that are not offering up anything new.

I think Sony would do well to reissue the 10 CD Philly 40th Annivesary box set and add on a couple more discs of 12" mixes & previously unreleased material. According to the liner notes on the original box set, there is a wealth of vault material that still hasnt seen the light of day. I would be more interested in that instead of these over priced sets that are not offering up anything new.

Yeah,I would definitely love to have more rare,previously unreleased stuff from the Philadelphia International vaults.These sets are really nice,though,and I just can't resist biggrin
