hey Gail,

congrats on getting the catalogue back. I’m really excited with the UMG reissues.

I was wondering if there will be a boxset – or better yet, for us nomadic fans, some sort of zip drive – where I can buy the whole shebang in one go or will I have to pick them up in installments.

Also, is the UMG deal only for albums up to YELLOW SHARK?

Will LATHER, LOST EPISODES, HIOSomeone and MYSTERY DISC make the cut?

Will 200 MOTELS and MOTHERMANIA be back (in physical form)?

Any enlightenment on such matters would be just gravy,



There will be more exciting gravy for you later next month but the answer to your last question is yes on Lost Episodes, HIOSomeone & Mystery Disc.  Thank you for sharing your joy and commitment!
