    I'm curious about something. There is obviously some "master" catalogue somewhere that keeps track of every CD, Cassette and LP released. I assume this because of the existence of systems like "MUSE" which allow you to search for songs and albums, including out of print titles. What I'm wondering is will the CD's that have been rereleased throught the Wonderland Music project be included in this great Master list? Even though systems such as MUSE seem to be set up so that a customer can order hard to find music, and one couldn't order "Tinpanorama" from the Muse kiosk at their local Barnes and Noble, it really seems like there should be some record of these releases. In other words, if someone were to look up "Babes in Toyland" on such a kiosk years from now, would it list a 2004 rerelease?

    Hi. I know what you're talking about, and I'm going to say no, they probably would not be listed.

    The Wonderland system releases are like "legal" bootlegs. That is, Buena Vista, Disneyland (label), etc. did not really release them in 2004. (The labels on the CDs are nostalgic, but not authentic.) Yes, they were released, because we have them in our hands, but I don't think you'll ever find them on MUSE.

    Also, because they are burn-on-demand, some titles will sell better or worse than others. In theory, some titles could NEVER be sold, begging the question, if an album was released but no one burnt one, was is really released?

    Just an opinion, I really don't know what I'm talking about! lol

    Of course, I could be wrong.

    Actually, EVERY single burn-on-demand title will sell at LEAST one copy as I'm buying at least one of each. :) I plan to keep purchasing as long as they are produced. I say, keep 'em coming! ;)

    My REAL response though, is that a while back I was ripping all of my Wonderland CDs and many of the CDs' information automatically popped up; it was mostly correct information gathered from the web (presumably Muse, as I think that was the source the program was defaulting to.) I found that I did tweak most of them for spelling, punctuation, capitalization and the like, but on the whole the ones that were there were fairly accurate.
