Warner Bros. music publishing division was sold to the publisher Alfred a few years ago. Since that time, Alfred has sold the inventory acquired, but has overall decided not to reissue most titles. Alfred has allowed much, if not most, of the vast Warner Bros. archive to go out of print.
If you decide to order any of the items on this page, we will try to find a copy either from Alfred or one of our suppliers. Point is, if you order from this page, there is a good chance the item is out of print/publication.

In defense of Alfred. . . these are very hard times for music publishers. Some may not survive the recession.
