The Michigan Box

Bear Family Records, that German purveyor of crazily comprehensive, deliriously detailed multi-disc box sets, has issued The Michigan Box: 1950s & 1960s Oddball Labels, a 10-CD (that's right, 10-CD) compendium of releases from small Michigan labels. And guess what? There's some U.P. Grooves in it! (There'd almost have to be with 10CDs, right?)

The package (which, by the way, also includes a hardcover book) has tracks by Society, the Ramblers, the Rhythm Rockers and Danny & the Galaxies - and that's just what I know about! It's possible there are some other U.P. Grooves hidden in the Box as well. (If you get a copy, and if there are some U.P. tracks that I've missed, let me know.)

And if I'm listed as a source of info for the Box, tell me - I may ask for a consulting fee! (Or at least a free copy of the set.)
