Target has it as well. I wonder if it is worth getting. I hate not to get it and then it disappear. That is my issue with finding a Blu-Ray of High time!

Re: New vinyl release

As a collector, it'd be nice to have.  But as a realist, I don't really play albums anymore except for my podcast and I hardly need to have any of those songs for a 30th time.   BUT, if I was new to Bing, this would be an EXCELLENT collector's item to have.   It's still tempting, mind you.   I have the original lp with the original title Merry Christmas and I put it up on the wall every year at Christmas.  So I don't even need to buy the new one just for the nice lp cover.

Re: New vinyl release

Archifit, I feel the same way. Not sure if I should get it or not. I mean it is not a rarity but as a collector it is interesting. 
I still have a lot of Crosby LPs, but I am in the process or transferring my big band LPs/other vocalists to CD or MP3 and getting rid of the records myself.

Re: New vinyl release

At one point I gathered a bunch of my records together about 150 of them, records I didn't play or already have a CD copy of them.  But then the Wuhan hit and then I started doing my show so now they still sit together, the outcasts.   Now that I'm doing these shows I am now even less inclined to get rid of them.   A lot of these records I don't have on CD yet, and "you never can tell" when I might need it to play it on a program.   So I have got to get these lps all together again and on shelves that I bought over a year ago.   I've been too lazy to start this heavy duty project.   I'll work up the energy though, I almost did it earlier this week, then I got tired thinking of all the work.

Re: New vinyl release

I started doing that with my big band LPs. They are albums I am not emotionally attached to but I want the music like Charlie Barnet, Bunny Berigan, etc. It's time consuming because I have to pause the recordings to put the breaks on the CD. Sometimes I get preoccupied so I miss the break and curse myself. It's a whole process!

My Bing Crosby LPs - most of them I have on CD but I am emotionally attached to those.
