Please ask your friend if she can get them to produce a Yamashita set. They own his recordings and there could be about 80 discsChristopher Freitag wrote:I just confirmed this with a friend who works at Sony. This same friend got me the Bream box set when it came out.

Changes was released by Cube Records Fly 5, Not CBS/RCA/Sony - that's why it's not included.Tom Poore wrote: I also don’t see his 1971 “Changes” in the box set listing.

You're absolutely right - In fact for those like myself who are done buying CD's and can't wait to hear the complete Williams set all 58 recordings are available on Spotify RIGHT NOW! - in fact I'm currently carrying all of them on my iPhone- Here's the playlist of all 58 together - you can break them up individually into the original albums if you wish.Florentin Tise wrote:They won't invest in something that may not bring decent returns.larryguitar wrote:Well, it is certainly strange that the whole North American market is being ignored right now.

A great percentage of music listeners in North America, and not only, get their music today either for free or with paid subscriptions on Spotify, Apple Music, and so on.
I've had some $100 in my iTunes account for more than a month now, and I can't decide how to spend it... because I also have Spotify Premium, and all the recordings I'd buy on iTunes I can access on Spotify at no additional cost.
The Williams set, while being a wonderful collection, is not likely to sell well in physical stores in North America. From a business viewpoint, it is probably not a good investment for a local record store.
