How much of Rhino's market was created by the indifferent re-mixing for the re-release of their LP labels at the advent of CD? Apple Corps was smarter in re-releasing an Beatles LP every other month or so but other labels (notably Columbia with Chicago) release the entire oeuvre -- at least those LP's to which they still held title -- at one dump. These CD's were indifferently mixed and many of those elements that made the albums special -- Terry Kath's guitar riffs, in the case of Chicago LP's -- were nearly entirely lost on the Columbia CD's. I thank god that I discovered the Rhino releases! Also, thank you for releasing the MST3K shows! I have several old shows on VHS. My off-the-air tapings have longs since degraded.

Is Harold producing the Mogan David and the Winos bio film?

"Merry go, merry go merry go round, boo, boo, boop! In 1962 I was admitted to the mental institution..." (Wildman Fisher) Is Mr. Bronson still involved with Rhino? If so, will Rhino be moving into high definition (24 bit, 192 mhz, DSD, etc.)downloads?
