GUEST,irishenglish Peter Kennedy Collection-moved to Halsway Manor (47) RE: Peter Kennedy Collection 31 Oct 07

Jim Carroll, the sales may be disappointing in the end, but is that really the point? I treasure my Voice of The People CD's as much as the rest of my collections of artists, and to have them released and available is I think a tremendous thing. Let's face it though, this is relatively speaking, a low sales category, and the people involved in this music are not raking it in anyway. If Topic wants to bring out another 20+ volumes of music, let them have it. I could also read "commercially viable" to mean, like VOTP,it will be packaged thematically,and in a nice overall product, which having worked in music retail, I can tell you does make a difference! If you have a hastily thrown CD art placed on good material, then it really doesn't sell, as opposed to choosing something that will catch your eye and make it appealing. I just think, yes of course it would be great for me to buy an entire albums worth of Johnny Doughty, or Mary Ann Carolan, etc, at any given time here in the U.S. But since that may not be possible, I'll gladly take what I can get, no arguments about it! Cheers!
