That is an investment of 1,832.35 plus the cost of checking the paperwork for each album if that is the minimum run, not for getting the artwork and printing. However for Dave to make every one happy he would have to produce ever album he owns the rights too. That is a more than a serious amount of money for any one. The logistics of storing Millions of freshly made CD's. Even then with the price of the original collectable market falling, including Folkiedave stock, Some Artists who are still producing Albums are not going to be happy for one reason or another.
You have answered two of the questions Dick Miles who has his own international record company. He would like to buy the rights to Cheating the Tide because I quote "Tyke,my lp Cheating the tide,has Martin Carthy ,playing the guitar that in itself makes it commercially viable. Assuming this is correct he stands to make a profit of over 11000 pounds and not pay Martin Carthy a penny.

Proof enough that he has his own reasons for saying quote "Bulmrer is a complete bollox.Ihope he rots in hell." And it aint to do with our valuable "Folk heritage" or providing for ageing Folk Artists.
