It most likely reissued a lot of Mal's dad's recordings, but other than that,
it was just an aside. Speaking of Columbia, Mr. Geoffrey Wheeler also has an
interesting opus concerning that label's history and possible nefarious doings
over the years.

The Standard Edition is notAvailable from Amazon direct but there are currently about 12 copies available on Amazon through “resellers”. The list price for the Standard Edition is $49.00. I can't tell you what Amazon's Direct price will be , when it is in stock.
