In late 1996, thanks to the success of the three existing series, and a growth in sales and catalogue product, RDUK's output had increased ten-fold over the previous three years. The UK started to outsource some of their work and the Timeless Favourites series had been one of the first products to be partly compiled using external non-Digest companies. After the series had had an inititial shaky start anyway, it began to suffer in production delays which is why volume 12 was actually produced out of sequence using mostly RD recordings (unlike the previous issues). The noticeble difference in the style of performances showed, and sales began to drop off dramatically. It would soon became the first UK series to be axed due to poor sales.
