GUEST,Jim Carroll Topic Records Folk Songs Of Britain (39) RE: Topic Records Folk Songs Of Britain 30 Nov 07


Dick,
Again, please don't get me wrong; I am not having a go at you or your efforts with Camsco; it seems to me we have inherited a situation rather than a collection.
Years ago I was lucky enough to be asked to work on the copies of the BBC acetate discs that are held at the Vaughan Williams Memorial Library, during the course of which, I listened to every disc in the collection, so I am well aware of what they are.
Our problem is amply illustrated in your last posting by the fact that out of the seven questions I asked, you were unable to answer four of them; not your fault, that is the situation as it stands.
It is my contention that, as the collection was inspired by the BBC and EFDSS and paid for by the taxpayer, and because technology has made it possible, all the material should be freely available to be accessed on the internet; this is the only way everybody who so desires can get to listen to it in its entirety; anything less would be a fudge.
Jim Carroll
