Thread Name: Reflections/Criticism of Peter Kennedy
Subject: RE: Reflections/Criticism of Peter Kennedy
RE RUSTON HORMSBY[we are not looking at bootlegging of the rolling stones]EXACTLY. this is all so petty and small minded.
I feel pretty pissed off with Dave Bulmer, suppressing my recordings, but he bought the recordings when I couldnt afford to do so, so legally he can do what he wants,.
The only thing i can do is re record them .
At least Peter Kennedy never suppressed recordings and made this wonderful music available for all who wanted to hear it, Even if he made an impecunious living while doing it, after all these recordings were not commercial hits. Rod Stradling although professional in the quality of his music has [as far as I know always been semi pro].KENNEDY after he finished working for the EfDSS, had no other means of support, all this has to be taken into consideration when making judgements.
Sometimes it can be difficult for those with steady jobs, to know how it feels not to be able to pay the next phone bill,Would it have been better for him to have become a bank clerk and to have given up collecting ,I dont think so.we would all have been the poorer.
