Don't really need commemorative CDs do we, as they've already been 
reissued? Do we really want the general public latching on to this fact, 
and pretending they've always been interested in jazz? ("Haven't you 
heard, darling, jazz is all the rage this season?")

Jazz collectors have always been a pretty insular lot, looking after 
ourselves, and not relying on state grants and steenkin' ministers of 
culture to patronize us.
