Dick Hi!

Mmmm Publishing rights....Nest of Worms, Can of Vipers!!
I think you have hit the nail on the head.
It's not about ownership of the physical product (ie, Tapes/Vinyl/Stuff)
It's all about the ownership of the publishing. Hence my mention of the Jackson/McCartney stuff. Whoever has those particular rights, has, very much the upper hand. I think it would be the dream of every artist (particularly in the Folk world, where money is at a premium!!) to actually own their own publishing rights. (Thus becoming masters of their own destinies).
Hence, the reason why I keep this subject alive. And will continue to do so!.

Which brings me on to GUEST with the very long name above!!

Glad that your little dip into Radio 4 catching the BP prog, prompted to you buying the CD. Glad you did, because it (Bright Phoebus) is really rather good.
I'm sure that everyone would be happy that you went out of your way to track it down. Enjoy. Nobody is going to take out a contract on you!!!

It's just a shame that all this legal shenanigans has deprived more people from accessing a lot of wonderful music. (See extensive list a couple of pages back).

Memo to Pat Cooksey, if he sees this. How is your case re "The Sick Note" going???

On a point of tecchie stuff, the "Listen Again" server at the Beeb isn't that huge, so, obviously, various progs have to be dumped from time to time to make way for more. Lifes a bummer, but Hey, the service didn't even exist until a few years ago!!

As regards the BP prog, a friend of mine kindly recorded it (Yes Yes, highly illegal I know!)
for me last week, but sadly onto cassette..........!

My last cassette m/c died late last year!
Ho Hum.

As usual, Regards to all
