Sorry to have to tell you this but the sun is shining here. I'm away playing singing and generally enjoying myself whilst you seem to just want to do is stay home and whine into your Computers.

I'm not making any comment about artistic integrity or musical ability, Captain Birdseye, or who is on what Album. I have asked people to visit your web site, Dick Miles, and to decide if they think reissuing your Albums is a commercial proposition at this time. Sorry I did not realize that you wanted to capitalize on Martin Carthy playing Guitar on your Album "Cheating the tide". Would Martin Carthy receive a share or the lion's share of the profits from your record company from the sales of this Album?

For someone who seems to be trying to throw personal insults, Dick, you don't seem to be doing a great job. Now, Dick, you seem to think that you, Dick, can say that I would be putting my own personal safety at risk by visiting West Cork. Or are you, Dick, saying that it is a general warning to any one that you presume is English not visit Eire and in particular West Cork. Don't seem to be the best place in the world for an English concertina player to earn a living. Still as I can see from you photograph, Dick, it take all types to make a world Dick.

Please visit the Dick Miles website where you can purchases all his Albums and books however don't forget his own personal recommendation for and I quote "one good thing Dave Bulmer did, was to publish,2 0R WAS IT THREEvolumes of Irish tunes."
