Just in case anyone but me has tried it - you need to buy 39 CDs to get all of the Andrews Sisters 668 studio recordings. Only 3 tracks have never made CD to date: 'My love went without water', 'Helena' and 'Music makers'!

Well I for one find that vaguely interesting although that's 39 more Andrews Susters CDs than I currently own and 38 more than I'm ever likely to.
turn on, tune in, nod off

What a conundrum!
Let U be the set of all united sets, K be the set of the kids and D be the set of things divided.
Then it follows that ∀ k ∈ K: K ∈ U ⇒ k ∉ D

I'm not convinced "diehard" is the right term for most Andrews Sisters fans. Diesoon? Diequitelikely?

The reason why you would need that many CDs to get it all, is that the vast majority are Greatest Hits comps, seeing that they recorded mostly in the pre-LP era. I like them, but would not attempt it, too much overlap.

You ought to get one, at least. "Bei Mir Bist Du Schoen" is one of the best songs of the 1940s.
