Subject: RE: Celtic Music Dave Bulmer (6)
For all that is said about the Nic Jones non accessible albums, Id like to point out that on "Penguin Eggs" there is no credit or recognition for "Wee Pot Stove" or "Trawlermen" written by the late Harry Robertson who was alive at the time of "Penguin Eggs" release. This has been a sore point for his family. Harry Robertson did release an album called "Whale Chasing Men" containing these songs and more that he had written from his experiences as a whalemen down in Leith Harbor South Georgia in the 1940s and 50s. It has been my experience that anyone who wishes to record Harry's music need only get in touch with the family in Australia for permission. This was the case anyway in the late 1990s.
