If Mr Bulmer has kept the collection together and in good condition AND makes it possible for them to be reissued, a lot of people and not just me would thank him.

You claim he had 'foresight' in acquiring them in the first place. This implies and intention to reissue, or sell on at a profit. Fine. Let him do it.

I lack nothing in 'hindsight' as I can see very well now what would have been better all round for everyone, including him. No-one imagined, at the time, that such a treasure trove of collected work would ever become unavailable for so long. Those of us who no longer have the vinyl never dreamed that they wouldn't be able to replace it later in another format. Artists wouldn't be dying off with their work hidden from the world.

As it is, nothing is occurring. Just what kind of 'foresight' does Mr Bulmer have?
