Arkiv Releases Out of Print Recordings has begun issuing CD-Rs of an out-of-print or otherwise generally unavailable recordings. For the usual cost of a CD, they'll burn you a disc and include reproductions of the original artwork and liner notes. But unlike the bootleggers on eBay, the recordings are fully licensed from the record labels. Max Preeo hinted on CASTRECL that a major label is negotiating to use ArkivMusic to release its back catalog...

Should the Archiv editions be listed as separate issues, or are they simply re-pressings of previously issued titles? For example DRG has a reissue of ST> LOUIS WOMAN complete witha new catalogue number and altered packaging. Archiv offers a reprint of the Broadway AQngel release using teh same catalogue number.
