After Nate posted yesterday on the Daywind/Skylite releases, I got a call last night from a good friend (hat tip, BS) with some more information on the releases. These are actually two complete Skylite albums being released on a single CD. My friend had actually found a couple of copies, even though they are supposed to release on Feb. 24, according to Amazon, and they are of very good quality. He picked up copies of the Statesmen, Blackwood Brothers, Masters V, and Oak Ridge Quartet, and also saw a Speer Family CD. I did a little digging on Amazon.com, and found them listed. Here’s the link to a few.
This is great, I’m glad to see that Daywind is releasing full albums instead of just compilations of Skylite era stuff. I believe that the ORQ Sing and Shout was released while Skylite was still owned by the Blackwoods and Statesmen, so the possibility for Jake and Rosie era Statesmen and JD era Blackwood Brothers releases seem to be pretty high for future rereleases. Keep an eye out for these!
