Oh dear me

I only know of the two re-issues because
A. I bought the CD from Michael Chapman at a gig
B. I asked one of the Houghton Weavers if they had plans to re-issue Howfen Wakes

All I did was point that that he must allow some artists access to their back catalogues (In answer to Susan saying he wont sell rights back).

I've read the threads and agree with many of the points made. The lack of accounting is a terrible thing and were I an artist, I wouldnt trust such a deal as far as I could throw it.

All I suggested was that MAYBE, he wasnt as black as painted and raised three points to see what the general concensus of opinion was. I also hoped not to get attacked and certainly not called a liar (which I am not).

It strikes me, that without the chance to speak openly and objectively there is little hope of an open discourse.
