If anyone who has the Document Leroy Carr CDs gets the new JSP Carr set, I'd be interested in any comments comparing the sound of the Documents and JSPs.

I was just going to ask the same question. Also, keep an eye out for the Roots and Rhythm newsletter, where such comparisons are often made. I don't remember seeing this in the latest one though there is a lot about JSP sets.

Anyone heard anything about Document lately? It's been awhile since one of their specials, and their website has had an item about restructuring the company, implementing new systems, apologizing for being slow with summer orders etc., for quite some time now. Anyone ordered anything direct lately?

I posted this almost a month ago. Now there's (possibly wild) speculation on the prewarbler's list about Document possibly folding. Only speculation (read, wild rumour) so far, no confirmation of anything. So I'll repeat my inquiry. Has anyone ordered anything from Document recently and if so, when, and was the order fulfilled? Does anyone know anything about their status? Does anyone have contacts who might be able to enlighten us?

I phoned re an outstanding order last week and was told there had been problems with their credit card processing amongst other things and to send a cheque. However, since then I've had confirmation of the dispatch of my order. I'll keep you posted when/if it arrives.

Thanks for the info, Blueshome.

One thing that crossed my mind is the specific use of the word "restructuring" as it refers to Document Records. With all the recent negative economic news using the term to refer to reorganization under bankruptcy protection in the U.S., we might just be assuming the worst about Document, when in fact they are only restructuring their business in the non-bankruptcy sense. Anyway, let's hope it merely refers to reorganizing the nuts and bolts of their business operation and not their financial health.

The Document website has been updated with an explanation of what's been going on. Sounds like the banking crisis has been the culprit. Seems like it should be business as usual in a few weeks. Lots of detail in a frank message from Gary Atkinson here:

Thanks, Andrew. I stand corrected--or at least clarified. I guess this is what happens when the worldwide banking system goes bankrupt.

You can't help but feel sorry for Gary in his frustration.
