Is this for real? What a waste! Not one of his better albums by any means.

I'm not planning on buying this release, but I do own several other Friday Music releases. They are excellent.

I'll get this as Friday Music haven't let me down yet. Sony seemed to have stalled with their vinyl releases

Anything released up to the end of 1963 is PD. Anything released after that date, the new 70 year rule applies - as far as I know.
