Rolf has already had all the tapes professionally mixed and copied.

Like Thomas I have a number of these original tapes. Some have lots of tunes on them.

Some of the tapes are on standard quarter inch tape and others are on 1 inch professional reels.

Graham

All the tapes professionally mixed and copied? To what use I wonder....?


For Rolf's (and a couple of select friends) personal enjoyment. :?

Really sets the standard for how to act if you get ahold of unissued stuff for the rest of us then? Keep it to yourself :roll:

All the songs I uploaded and came from the tapes I have expensive restored are online available at any time...for free.
You know that :idea:

But why aren't the tapes being offered to Bear Family or a similar company? All us long-time JLL fans have been wanting an "Elektra and Beyond" box-set for nearly 30 years now, ever since Bear Family released the Mercury LP boxes. Just releasing the occasional track online is a compromise that satisfies no-one (not even Jerry Lee Lewis as he doesn't get royalties from it).

Well I've asked before on here and you or Graham haven't responded... so are you confirmed that they were offered these?

If Bear Family rejected them then there are plenty of other record labels. I'm sure Rolf could even release them on a label of his own, as he (I believe) one time wanted to release the Bocholt DVDs himself.

I'm sorry you are dissatisfied with that.

You can be sure I'm happy about every single bit what comes on daylight that's not in my collection!

The same as the rest of us then. Which is why we want all the takes properly released.

Well can you at least confirm that Rolf would be willing to release these if Bear Family were interested? Perhaps then we can all write to Bear Family telling them how much we want these. :idea:

I don't know, I have not talked about this with Rolf and I personally have my doubts that BF is interested to realize such a project.

Ok, maybe we should all petition Rolf instead. Do you have contact details where fans (and maybe even record companies) can write?

There is the record label where all the songs got recorded.
http://elektra.com/

or mother company Warner

Sorry, Thomas - but do you really think Elektra or Warner are willing to release unreleased stuff ?

Bear Family will be first choice in every way. When the SUN box will have any commercial success, there must be the right time to ask BF for a next
Project, including the fans again. At the moment it is not very easy to discuss about unreleased Elektra stuff, as there is everything extremely confidentially between Rolf´s "inner circle". I want only to point out, that there could be most of the material be available with the help of Rolf.
The only problem are the so called "unreleased Bones Howe sessions" which are at the moment only useable in 2nd or 3rd generation audio tapes.

All in all I fully agree with Peter, the Elektra recordings are the MOST WANTED items for many, many of us !!!!

It´s still a pity, that everything is hidden in such mystery at this time.
