Re: Roger Pryor Dodge was Lord Let Me In The Lifeboat !
There are a couple of people subscribing to this list who do audio restoration work for specialist labels. There might be more people who read the archives (no subscription required) also involved in jazz reissues.
The question is probably whether you are willing to entrust your treasures to the postal service(s) or whether you are only willing to have them transferred by someone close at hand.
The Miley would best fit in with the existing programmes of Frog, Jazz Oracle or Timeless. Frog has the Miley Victors in glorious sound and seems to be embarking on a new series called "Frog Spawn" which has previously unissued items or one-off stuff.

- I am sure I speak for everyone associated with the RHJ list in wishing Dan all the best and in conveying our hopes for a swift recovery from surgery. Music is very therapeutic (among its many other qualities)and the discussions on this list concentrate & exercise the mind wonderfully. Mind you, Dan, they can also send up the blood pressure...All the very best; it's great to hear from you.
