The Complete Hit of the Week Recordings - volume 4 to be released in April 2011

The fourth Archeophone 2CD record with the Complete Hit of the Week Recordings to be released April 2011
In its latest newsletter Archeophone Records announced that the 4th and final volume of the 4 2cd-set The Complete Hit of the Week Recordings would be released soon.
I reported this before.
its website the release is now scheduled for late April 2011 and one can reserve a copy in advance for a reduced price.
Crisco presents the Mills Brothers (1932) - The "young group" sings its signature tune Goodbye Blues ( 5108 )
On its website the 59 tracks of the two cds are presented and it is remarkable that so much rare advertisement and custom records, most never re-issued before, are available. The well known
Goodbye Blues record, released by Crisco, the all vegetable shortening which digest so easily, was recently re-discovered and transferred. Up to now we had to live with a moderate 1960s transfer used for an early Ristic album. All the known re-issues on LP or CD of this tune used that moderate Ristic transfer.
What Kind of Cough is Serious? Play this record and find out (late 1932 - early 1933) ( 5209)

And if you might catch a cold, you should listen to the introduction of What Kind of Cough Is Serious? A text on the reverse of the original records warns you in advance: This record has been designed to present, in an instructive manner, a serious problem and its solution. If it should displease your finer sensibilities, owing to the subject involved, kindly bear in mind that it is wiser to face even an unpleasant issue than to dodge it and remain in ignorance as to your best protection.

The three previous released double cd's are all available now again.
