The Cafe Europa Sessions

MRS will release The Cafe Europa Sessions, a 4 CD deluxe set in March.
The set will include a 100 page book, and be the same size as the Sony Close Up CD Set. Close Up had 48 pages, the MRS set will have 100, so it will actually be a bit thicker with the same width and hight.

Well if you explain it like that Harvey, then i should be more than extremely glad my 5 CD set of the 1996 Cafe Europa sessions arrived today!~~

Harvey is correct, only the master takes issued on the original "G.I. Blues" album are out of copyright, something Ernst pointed out quite forcefully a few weeks ago. Because they start the fifty year clock with the release date, the CDs containing the 1958 sessions generally miss out "Danny", "Your Cheatin' Heart" and "Ain't That Lovin' You Baby".

If only people would get their facts straight before posting statements on here. This set is not legal. They are relying on the 50 year European copyright law, but it's not as simple as that. The law states that any recordings made over 50 years ago (whether released at the time or not) are now in the public domain. However, the law chaged in the middle of 1957, so that any recordings from that point on had to be released at the time in order for them to be in the public domain now. Clearly, this means the 'G.I. Blues' outtakes are still in copyright.

Since i found out that ALL the 'outakes' released by BMG in 2003 on their CLOSE UP boxset CD 2 are missing from this release, that means it will be 'Legal' and NOT infringing Copyright.

Lists the instrumentals of "Tonights All Right For Love". Did we have these on Tulsa boot set?
You Dont Know Me (profilecontact) wrote on Feb 8, 2011report abuse
Its NOT as complete which is why i recently bought the Tulsa 5 CD (Dutch made bootleg!) maybe the sound WILL be better on this MRS , but i am a completist and besides the sound on this Tulsa Bootleg is also 'extremely good quality'!~

C'mon MRS, give us an extra 5.1 DVD-audio disc with all the 4 cd's on it !

Looks good but doesn't seem to be as complete as the Tulsa Records release of the same name. But that came out 15 years ago so it still seems like a worthwhile release.
