Congratulations, Jessica and John, on this beautiful new blog!
According to the Venezuelan web publication Notitarde, viz., the Spanish page linked below dated 29 July 2011, Q-Productions (Selena’s father’s studio/publishing house) plans to release five new CDs of previously-unreleased Selena recordings from the mid 1980’s (i.e., when Selena was in her mid-teens). About 50 tracks are planned, and some of them will be re-engineered, in some replacing the original backup band with more contemporary playing (A. B. Quintanilla and his group will assist) and upgrading to present-day engineering standards. The CD’s are planned to be released this Winter, the end of this year and beginning of next. What is more, a new DVD of a previously-unreleased 1992 Selena performance in a now-demolished Corpus Christi theater is to appear amidst this release.
