First, addressing the obnoxious comment you made earlier this morning, but later deleted...
No, I am not an employee shill of Warner Brothers.
I certainly don't understand why Warner Brothers has the following stated on that page!? -
"... has not been remastered or restored..."
That information is wrong. The Vitaphone shorts have been thru a restoration/remastering process over the past couple years.
That's a frequent error on the WBShop site, with its web-clerks using a cookie cutter approach to set up product pages. Other product description errors for this collection were corrected earlier yesterday. They didn't get 'em all.
BeAStooge, when you write "Reportedly", what is your source of information for that?
In early 2012, Warner Archive began testing a new marketing strategy of providing a limited stock of pressed discs for many of its multi-disc collections, e.g., "Crime Does Not Pay," "Forbidden Hollywood," the upcoming "Bowery Boys Collection," others. The product pages have not included this information, and as a result the customer service people are not made aware of it. The information is sometimes shared on sites like Home Theater Forum, and in the case of "Bowery Boys" WA has announced that to be so. In the case of this Vitaphone set, I'll know when it arrives.
