Thanks for the heads up. Who says the CD is dead?! I already have all their LP's and CD's, so I'll have to take a close look to see if I "need" this boxset.

Richard and Linda were a major source of great music in the 1970's and early 80's, and Richard remains so. They were in their time what Buddy and Julie Miller have been in the past few decades---amongst the very best of the best.

Too bad not a lp box
