Subject: RE: Bright Phoebus/Watersons/Bulmer
I just heard the programme and was completely knocked out by the music, as I always have been by most of the people involved and by bits of BP that I have heard over the years.

But realistically most of us who love this kind of music did not buy it first time round and it probably wouldn't sell a lot now. As exciting as many of us find it - most people don't and I suspect most folkies don't either.

Music either hits you or it doesn't. It is no use trying to convince somebody else why Little Richard, Luke Kelly or The Watersons just do something, the simply do and the general evidence is that BP misses most people.

Perhaps somewhere between Topic and other independant labels something could be done?
