It's a start.  I hope the mastering is good and consistent.  I have a hodgepodge of C5, One Way, EMI, BGO, Sundazed...

I wonder if EMI will issue corresponding CDs with bonus tracks?

That's great news after all this time.

Is this in any way connected with the re-releases talked about elsewhere?

Great job Mark!
The guy that wrote the notes doesn't say anything about Jan being the producer of all that great music. Maybe you can write a review??

Yeah . . . Each of the original Liberty albums will eventually feature a PDF with new liner notes.

Even those initially posted without notes will have them added later.

WE have had problems with some CD issues - with compression taking away the highs and lows. I hope the downloads will deal with this. Really looking forward to good quality releases and the liner notes.

iTunes will be 256kbps AAC (yeech).  If these are going to be downloads only, I hope .wav or .flac is an option at other sites.  Does iTunes have exclusive rights?  Would like to see cover art reproduced exactly as the LP originals (although a case could be made against using the pink/black "Dead Man's Curve... LP)

What else can be discussed about these releases?  Is Ron Furmanek involved?  I hope so.
