Two more download albums have appeared.

Pop Elite: Best of Dusty Springfield was released on 15 September. It consists of eight tracks, five of which are by The Springfields with the remaining three tracks being by The Lana Sisters. If the artwork seems familiar, it was used for Pop Elite: Best of The Springfields issued in the summer of 2015.

The other compilation was issued yesterday (18th) under the title Beach Promenade. It consists of the twelve tracks from the album Kinda Folksy.

The Love Power video that Frans posted was shot on the French Riviera in July 1969.

Imposingly is the title of the latest download compilation of material by The Springfields. It is being released today and is simply a re-packaging of the twelve tracks from the Kinda Folksy album.

The latest download album was released yesterday under the title Weaselly. It consists of eight tracks from the album Kinda Folksy and four from singles issued in 1962.

The big question is: who in their right mind would think that calling an album Weaselly was a good marketing move?

It makes me wonder: are European store shelves bursting with grey market CDs??

What a bizarre name indeed. I'm guessing these re-releases are because the songs have fallen into the public domain? Strangely enough a similar thing seems to have happened to some of Nina Simone's recordings.

The latest download album of material by The Springfields is released today under the title Christmas Greeting.

The title suggests an album of Christmas music. Anyone buying it under that impression will be sorely disappointed. It consists of eight tracks from the Kinda Folksy album and four tracks from 1962 singles, none of which has any connection with Christmas.

It's a bit like buses. Nothing for ages, then two come at once.

Hot on the heels of yesterday's release, Christmas Cards is released today as a download album. It has the twelve tracks from the 1962 album Kinda Folksy, albeit in a different running order. Again, why use 'Christmas' in the title when none of the tracks has anything to do with Christmas?

I see some of the international Amazon sites are showing an upcoming (August) vinyl LP issue
Kinda Folksy/Singles a/B Sides

No artwork shown but presumably will use the original album cover.

I spotted this the other day on US Amazon, but didn't post as there no info other than title and price and the projected release date was so far ahead. Somehow I can't see audiophiles into heavyweight vinyl clamouring for an LP of The Springfields. Makes you wonder who this is targeted at.
