See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shout!_Factory but note the caveats at 
the top. No mention of Collectables. I've been curious about where 
Collectables gets its material from. I have the Bill Russo "World of 
Alcina", which sounds pretty decent, except on one of the small group 
tracks there is what sounds like the stylus encountering a ball of fluff 
and the sound going fuzzy. I assume they are legit, but are they just 
dubbing the original LPs (without checking the results) or do they have 
access to the master tapes?
