"Bulmer received unexpected support from Dick Gaughan"

From Guest Lian's post above.

It is true that Dick recorded for, and worked with Dave Bulmer during the 80's and 90's.

Dick even worked on remastering some of the Leader /Trailer albums. He told me that some master tapes, including I think, his own, Nic Jones, and Tony Rose were in such poor condition, due to the way they had been stored, that remastering a mint record was a better choice.

Dick's convincing of Clan Alba to go with CM to release their double album, and the way it was marketed, (sold via CM outlets only, not available to high street stores), resulted in the breakup of the band and the fracturing of Dick and Brian McNeill's friendship, which was only resolved a couple of years ago.

It also resulted in Dick no longer associating with Bulmer.

You will notice that Dick now records for a different label.
