So this is great news but at the same time DARN!

I have really expanded my Crosby collection from a couple of albums to maybe a couple of dozen over the last 12 months! One of the albums I bought were a Twofer on CD of this New Tricks and Fine Old Chestnuts... and now I wonder if I'll need to buy both again

BUY THEM! If they are anything like the previous official releases from the group, they will be in superb sound and have excellent liner notes and annotations.

For the cost of 3-4 coffees from Starbucks, buy it anyways and support the cause. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/happy.png

Me too. Much cheaper than Amazon themselves - and they were quicker off the mark in taking orders. But delivery could be three weeks (or more).

Bing just arrived at my doorstep this early Saturday morning! Both look gorgeous in production and visual content. I am immersed in Christmas music now so I shall add these to my Christmas gifts and enjoy after the turn of the New Year. 

Initial reports from around the web so far (though sparse) are all VERY positive as to the music!

Kevin,

Quite easily! I have a ton of Christmas music that I only play for a few weeks each year and now is the time to enjoy it. (I shall take a day out on Tuesday however to celebrate the 102nd anniversary of Mr. S's birth.) 

And, after all, I have waited all these years to hear the "new" music on these CD's, so what's a couple of more weeks? I will enjoy them along with  a bunch of audiophile LP's I gifted myself with for my birthday & Christmas this year. 2018 will begin QUITE filled with "new" music.

BTW, by pre-ordering the CD's on Amazon, I saved enough money on the purchase price that by the time they shipped, I basically got "New Tricks" for free! (NOT meant to rub in anything to my European friends...just passing it along.)  The list price on Amazon on shipping day was just hair under $10.00 more than when I preordered 10/13.


All the best,
