Countess Richard-
As I have frequently said (in print), If any artist feels that royalties are owed on any CD I sell, I'll pay those royalties. Releases of previously recorded material don't (and never have) required authorization by the artist. And as far as I know, a producer who buys a label (such as Leader) isn't "sneaking" out anything. Neither is the producer required to promote nor publicize a release, though it's generally a good idea.
   It's certainly a CD-R, as are all the Leader/Dambuster/Croc etc./ releases. So what? They're not represented to be anything else, and prospective sales aren't large enough to warrant the expense of pressing.
