I hadn't seen the relatively recent posts on this, but I did place a call this morning to William Ellis, who is writer of liner notes for this project, to see what he knew. And he essentially confirmed the same thing we've heard before: Andy Cohen's wife needs to give the final OK to get this released. He seemed optimistic/hopeful that it really will be released someday, and I remain equally hopeful.

Mr. Ellis is now an assistant professor of fine arts/music at St. Michael's college in Vermont. http://208.83.125.74/academics/music/faculty.asp

I emailed Riverlark Records about a month ago asking if these recordings might be available soon, and Andy's wife Larkin replied with the following:

Yes, they will be! I'll put you on the email list and let  you know
when it'll be out. We are on the home stretch.
Thanks for asking!
Larkin


So it would seem that all approvals are in place! Perhaps johnm was correct in his earlier post, surmising as he did that a release such as this one requires a certain amount of capital. I would be happy to pay in advance if it would help.

Thanks for the update, TR. One of these years...

Always good to hear that someone has landed a teaching gig. St. Mike's is a pretty good school-- Hopefully Prof. Ellis will be happy there. And Winooski has to be one of the more interesting town names, IMHO.

I thought it especially unlikely that Prof. Ellis would turn up here in Vermont, and I literally work 3 miles away from his campus (in the aforementioned Winooski, the "Onion City"!)

I have also sent an email to Larkin Bryant Cohen asking to be put on the mailing list....

I just got an email from Larkin Bryant Cohen that reads in part: Yes, the Wilkins will be released as a CD which will include, of course, the original Memphis Gospel Singer 8 tracks plus bonus tracks from the Piedmont studio reels. We're in the final stages and it will be out this summer.

Hi Ryan:

I haven't heard anything or seen any news on their site (just checked).

http://www.riverlark.com/

You could always send an e-mail or give them a call.

Thanks Stuart!  I couldn't find that website last night (probably due to being exhausted)!  Anyway, I sent an email and will post the response in case anyone else is interested.

I got an email from Andy on the 12th to say they're both finishing off other projects, but it's next on the list. Just need to get the booklet together. I cracked and bought a copy on eBay for ?60. I've been waiting tooooo long to hear this record. Will still buy the CD though!
