I think I Can add something to this. In the 80's I was still collecting records and record albums. I met another collector in Poughkeepsie, NY. He told me about "The Fiddle Shop" in Hudson, NY. This shop had original unplayed records dating back to the 50's. I went to the shop. The owner was a music teacher probably around 90 years old who taught in the back. In the front was his "young" lady register clerk probably 80 years old. The collector told me that she just wanted to sell the records at a nominal price so they are gone. The main room had all the albums in bins like the old time record shops. No shrink wrapping, new and unplayed. Most of the KT albums were there along with The Platters etc. I went into the side room where all the 45's were still in their heavy green slip cover with the typed label. I slide one out it was Young At Heart by Sinatra with a date, what was that? 1955? I nearly choked. So I had all the KT albums but I purchased a bunch anyway. I think she charged me like $1.99 each. I went back maybe three more times. I ended up with multiple unplayed copies of the KT albums. They certainly were the ones with Dave, I can't remember now about the John albums. So I put them away and the CD thing came into being and they were all issued on CD's. Didn't have much use for them. So the year 2000 comes around and I e mail Bob Shane. Ask him if he knew anyone interested in old new unplayed KT albums. Bobbie Shane answers and says that Bob is on the road but will ask him when he gets back. Bob Shane e mails me and states he would want them. In my nativity I asked "Why would you want your own albums?" He writes that with all the moving and divorces he doesn't really have any and he wants to give them to his kids. So I came up with a nominal price he sends me a check, I cashed the check but before I did I made a copy of the check to keep. And I send off the albums. End of story.
