LP albums that were never released on CD

Now that the "End of the era of CD's" is being proclaimed, can you think of any major vinyl albums that were never released officially onto the CD format? I can think of quite a few "Texas Music" regional artists whose work has never seen the light of day on CD, but I'm really referring to "major" artists.
What comes to my mind first, it has to be the most glaring omission, would be "Time Fades Away" by Neil Young.
Also noteworthy would be "Rarities" by The Beatles.
Anybody got any others?

that Elvis record that was just between song banter they pulled from live albums

'Having Fun With Elvis on Stage'?

As far as I know, Kirsty MacColl's first album, 'Desperate Character' (1981), has never had a CD issue (though I think one may be in the works -- I'll have to look into that...).

Neil Young's "Journey Through The Past".
I only have a poor quality vinyl rip. Hurry up already, Neil!

It Ain't Easy-Three Dog Night
Jane Weidlin (ST with Blue Kiss)

Grandpa Tom,

Which tracks from the Living In The Past LP were omitted from the CD version?

I have "It Ain't Easy" on CD.... IMHO, "Buckingham Nicks" is a most glaring CD omission.

There's several import and domestic cd and vinyl versions. There were a total of 23 tracks released on the various configurations. The MFSL definitive version and complete track listing for all US and foreign versions follows:

Song For Jeffrey
Love Story
Christmas Song
LITP
Driving Song
Bouree'
Sweet dream
Singing All Day
Teacher
Witch's Promise
Inside
Alive And Well And Living In
Just trying To Be
By Kind Permission Of (Live)
Dharma For One (Live)
Wondering Again
Hymn 43
Locomotive Breath
Life Is A Long Song
Up the Pool
Dr. Bogenbroom
For Later
Nursie

Living In The Past

The Import 2003 cd delivers 19 tracks Omitting Bouree', Teacher, Hymn 43, and Alive and Well And Living In.
The 1996 cd release delivers 20 tracks Omitting Bouree', Teacher, and Locomotive Breath
The cassette delivers only 20 tracks
Amazon's mp3 download delivers only 19 tracks

Inexcusable for this essential and popular release to escape rework and deluxe reissue treatment IMO.

All the best to you tonight,

GT

Grandpa Tom says:
I do also. Original, tinny MCA release from 1989 or so. It's been OOP for decades, I believe.

Tarkus says:
"It Ain't Easy" is a highly underrated album, and I'd love to see a re-mastering, but we all know THAT ain't gonna happen....

In reply to an earlier post on Mar 11, 2012 9:29:40 PM PDT
Grandpa Tom says:
Boy, I sure agree. EASY's my fave album of theirs, especially Woman, Out In The Country, Rock and Roll Widow, Cowboy, and Your Song (much better than Elton's IMO).

Why Three Dog Night's catalog has been largely ignored for rework and reissue is curious.

Hope your night's great...

Emmylou Harris - "Evangeline" & "Thirteen"
Splinter - All Three LPs on George Harrison's Dark Horse Label
Davy Jones - 1970 Solo LP on Bell
Peter & Gordon - "Sing the Hits of Nashville, Tennessee" & "Hot, Cold & Custard"
Dave Clark 5's entire original catalogue!
Phil Everly - Living Alone

("Ballroom Streets was briefly released with missing tracks.)
Lon & Derrek Van Eaton - "Brother" on Apple Records

Note to Grandpa Tom: I have the Hollies' "Romany" on CD. A European Import, I believe.

In reply to an earlier post on Mar 11, 2012 9:56:19 PM PDT
I believe the main reason that the Three Dog Night catalogue has never been remastered is because the original master tapes no longer exist, having been destroyed long ago.

Of course this doesn't explain why they STILL haven't been inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame!

Grandpa Tom says:
More:

Yesterday and Today-The Beatles
Revolver (US)-The Beatles
Moondog Serenade-Cashman and West (Time Traveller is a great track)
Rock Kihn Roll-Greg Kihn Band
Where's The Party?-Eddie Money
953 West-The Siegel-Schwall Band

Signing off tonight...

ANDY GRIFFITH SHOUTS THE BLUES AND OLD TIMEY SONGS -- Capitol T/ST 1105.
I'd like to see a box set of the complete five Dot Records' albums by Leonard Nimoy
A complete box set of Mrs. Miller's Capitol albums, at least.
Brothers Four SING THE LENNON/MCCARTNEY SONGBOOK (Columbia)
Keely Smith SINGS THE LENNON/MCCARTNEY SONGBOOK (Reprise)
New Christy Minstrels ON TOUR THROUGH MOTORTOWN (Motown done whitebread; their last Columbia Lp)
TONY BENNETT SINGS THE GREAT HITS OF TODAY (Columbia)
Albums by the Lamanite Generation from BYU
THE INIMITABLE SAM SACKS (Arliss, c. 1961. The most legendary BAD music album ever made.)
Mini Pops!
KURT RUSSELL SINGS (Capitol)
The Ray Bloch Singers albums on Ambassador--so bad they're good!
Lennon Sisters ON THE GROOVY SIDE and SOMETHIN' STUPID on Dot
Mel Torme' Capitol 1969-70 Lps, A TIME FOR US and RAINDROPS KEEP FALLIN' ON MY HEAD (mismatch singer/song choices a la Mel's RIGHT NOW Columbia Lp)
Julie Rogers--had a monster hit in '63 with "The Wedding." Not a CD package out there.
THE SENSATIONAL JOHNNY RIVERS (Capitol; before he hit on Imperial)
Glen Campbell TRY A LITTLE KINDNESS, Capitol SW 389
Glen Campbell, THE LAST TIME I SAW HER, Capitol SW 733 -- very little of his Capitol catalog made it to CD, except the endless churning of maybe 20 hit singles.

Time Fades Away is #1
However I have heard that it (or part of it) will be on NEIL'S Archive 2 box!!!

Up until recently I was waiting for Dr Hook's "Belly Up" and it finally came out paired with "Bankrupt".
I would still like to see it come out as a single CD with lyrics, all original artwork and the 7" single that was put in the album's first pressing.

Some of the DC5 US catalog is available for digital download on iTunes. Just FYI.

Buckingam Nicks. Great album that should come out on cd.

Humble Pie "Lost and Found"
Yes, that LP is "As Safe as Yesterday" and "Town & Country" -- both available.
But there's something so nostalgic about the "Lost and Found" cover art.
