Indeed I saw this, Aaron, but I'm somewhat confused...

What label has released these new CDs? A search on amazon (my lazy litmus 
test) has not revealed to me *any* of that kind of consumer-oriented 
information! Perhaps it is the name itself that has made searching 
difficult?!

Again, thanks for pointing out this new (to me) information. I think this 
project is growing exponentially!
