What Dave Bullmer Bought was the stock of unsold records when the record company was declared bankrupt. He bought what other people did not want at that time. If you want to put your hand in your pocket and make an offer to Dave Bullmer then do so with you're hard earned cash.

I don't know what axe you have to grind with Dave Bullmer, Countess Richard, you would seem to prefer that these, now valuable, records to have been melted down to make new ones. As in sold for scrap to pay the debts of those who declared them selves bankrupt.

If you had just bought a copy of Bright Phoebus for 35 to 50 would you suddenly be calling Dave Bullmer if he flooded the market with these records? Another question is how much should the vendors of these now highly collectable LP's feel obliged to pay the artist every time they change hands.

Oh and I noted yesterday that the once popular cassette tape is now to be fazed out. The popularity of homemade compilation tapes once had the record industry in a flap. So hands up if you have never copied an LP to tape ripping off the Artist and contributing to the number of bankrupted Record Labels.
