I thought somebody would have answered you by now but NO. I have not seen anything other than the download for sale.

Well, for those of you looking for a CD version of the Sky Kings' 1992 album (otherwise available just as a digital download), I may have found a source:

http://fye.playanywhere.com/cd/1992/Country_TheSkyKings

It looks like you have to register and make payment with a credit card (obviously). But, supposedly the site will generate and ship a true-to-form, 1980's technology audio CD disc ready for car stereo cruisin'.

I'll check it out and let you know if the quality is up to par.

Now, has anyone happened to find a CD version available for purchase online yet?

This version of "One Tear At A Time" sounds amazing!

Long overdue!

Great, thanks! No Itunes for me. Wow, One Tear at a Time is on this? I'm gonna be busy downloading tonight ... Ringo's new album, Chris Hillman's (produced by Tom Petty) and now Sky Kings! Booyaaaa!

Can NOT get enough of Rusyt's new CD Waitin' for the Sun ... I thought it was great the first two listens, but now it's become one of the best additions to my collection EVER.

Wow, it does pay to check this board more often. Always hoped this album would make it to CD. "Old Hat" one of the best songs never released. Steven, looking forward to your review.

Today I received the custom-made Sky Kings 1992 CD from

http://fye.playanywhere.com/

All tracks sound seamlessly wonderful on disc!!!

This album of course contains unique, fantastic versions of three great compositions of Rusty's: "Old Hat" (co-written with Jack Sundrud), "Nothing Less Than Love," and "One Tear At A Time", as well as his vocals on "I Can Get Used To This" and co-vocals on "In A Heartbeat".

When I ordered this CD, I uploaded a picture of the album to create the custom cover (sleeve insert) prior to shipment. I had previously downloaded this picture from a Google image search of "Sky Kings 1992". So, I believe this as close as one can get to the real thing (until Amazon and/or the record company decide to offer a version).

Truly a long lost treasure. Recommended!!!
