Had I had the foresight and business acumen to have bought the master tapes I would like to think I would have saved the Master Tapes, made sure there were excellent copies and with the advent of CD's made and sold some from the master tapes. Many could be money makers. There is a market for the Sheffield Carols record for example, never mind the Bright Phoebus one.

I would then have passed on any royalties from those sales to the artists.

Is that what Dave has done and if not - since you appear to be so close to him George - why not?

Seems good business to me all round. Instead of which Dave has a load of pissed off people who think his name stinks. And he is a business man?
