OS X address book that doesn't import Contacts

David Rich
I started out with a Mac OSX Contacts address book with about a dozen contact groups on the left. It has "grown" into 87 contact groups, many duplicates.

Is there an OS X address book out there that doesn't import the Mac Contacts wholesale?
It needs to allow me to make groups (like those on the left of Contacts - but under my control.
It needs to print out address labels and produce eMail addresses for the groups.
If it could import selected groups of contacts from Mac Contacts it would be helpful.

    Have you looked at BusyContacts? 

It seems pretty comprehensive to me and I would be surprised if it cannot do what you want.
