Are these ever going to be released on CD as Rarities Collection? Do we have to wait for Al to die first? Or Prince and John Mellencamp?

I'm sure Al is responsible for any of the "retelling" elements of the Peter and the Wolf story as well as the Carnival of the Animals poems.

Here's the list

One of the tweets on Al's twitter has a link to a nice dissection of some of Al's originals. Some verification on a few new ones too!
