1. In a year that seems especially heavy with the deaths in the music world, Philip Kives' name may not resonate boldly as other recent losses. But the company he founded, K-Tel, released many compilation albums that introduced many young listeners to pop record buying from at least the mid- '60s to the mid-'90s. Were you aware that Kives died in April 2016?

Yes, I'd already known that.

It may depend on the album/s and possibly whether the digital files are compressed as the LP sound was back then.

4. For many young music listeners, listening to streaming playlists and compiling their own has rendered the idea of the compilation album irrelevant. Do you believe streaming now serves the same purpose as vinyl and tape albums of recent hits did back when?

Yes, streaming pretty much serves the same function as K-Tel's, et al's compilations.
