  1. Mark Robinson says:

    2 comments: 1 – I went onto the JSP Website and found that some pages (e.g., Box sets) would not display. 2- How does one find out the pricing and order these products?

  2. ozianscott says:

    I think your best bet would be to search Amazon. 🙂

  3. Mark Robinson says:

    I have not searched Amazon for the Duets CD as yet, but a search for the Soundtracks CD on Amazon produced a product that was quite a few years old, not the new CD that was mentioned on the earlier email and website.

  4. ken youjng says:

    I am wondering if the family is benefiting from these releases?

  5. ozianscott says:

    Here’s the direct link for “Soundtracks.” https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B0746VKNXM

    If you search there, you’ll be able to find the other releases. 🙂

  6. ozianscott says:

    “The family” doesn’t own any copyright on the material. 🙂

  7. Mark Robinson says:

    Thanks! It had not occurred to me to search Amazon UK. I have an account there and will order.

  8. lschulman says:

    This copyright discussion has been going on for eons now, and it is clear that one understands public domain in Europe, or one doesn’t. What is in the public domain needs no licensing. As for the so-called “estate” benefiting, that discussion too has been going on forever, and I will not delve into it anymore. As Scott writes, “the family” does not own the copyright on material over 50 years old in the EU. I hope people who contest this point of view would research public domain before speaking. In any case, the discussion ends here for me.

    LAWRENCE SCHULMAN

  9. ozianscott says:

    Mark, I’m glad it worked out! Again, you’ll really enjoy both sets.

  10. ozianscott says:

    I’d like to add that “the family” never owned any copyright on this material to begin with, whether it is 50 years old or not. Judy herself didn’t own any copyright it when she was alive, so of course “the family” wouldn’t either. Likewise, people out there who alter an audio recording by “remastering” it and then claim they have a copyright on that recording are dead wrong as well.

  11. Theo says:

    Pity the “new” takes of Yah-Ta-Ta/Mine (found by the Crosby fan club) weren’t included instead of the usual A-takes.

    Isn’t the sound engineer Peter Rynston, not Reynolds? I guess that Judy’s family might receive royalties from material if it was licensed from the copyright holder (Decca/Universal etc), but getting the radio stuff would probably be a minefield to clear, which is where public domain law is useful. Besides, I’m sure the Garland family has many other avenues of income, particularly given the success of her daughters.

  12. lschulman says:

    Hi Theo,

    It is indeed Peter Reynolds, and not Peter Rynston, who remastered CLASSIC DUETS.

    As to the “new” takes found post-SMILIN’ THROUGH, CLASSIC DUETS only contains master takes, so placing alternates would have been inappropriate.

    All best.
    LAWRENCE SCHULMAN

  13. ozianscott says:

    Thank you, Theo, and thank you, Larry, for your reply.

    I’d also like to add “the family” has no copyright on any of this material. They’ve never had any copyright on it in spite of what’s been insinuated in the past.

  14. John K says:

    Many congratulations Lawrence, for producing this indispensable Judy set. It’s so wonderful to have these duets together on one set, and remastered too (I have the rarest songs on old bootlegs circulated among fans and know how terrible they used to sound!) Thanks, and keep up the great work.
