"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."

I'm not sure where the figure of 1,832.35 comes from, Tyke, but the figure of 800 I mentioned did include printing of the cover art (an 8-page booklet in the case of my quote). What it did not include was the cost of resetting original LP artwork to CD format, although that's the kind of job I could probably manage on my home computer and even if put out to commercial tender I can't see it inflating the costs that much.

"However for Dave to make every one happy he would have to produce ever album he owns the rights too."

Who has been asking for that? The Nic Jones albums would be a good start in anyone's book - maybe the profits could subsidise the release of Cecilia Costello or O. J. Abbott?

I'm still not clear why (in the hypothetical event of his re-releasing "Cheating the Tide" on his own label) Dick should be expected to pay Martin over and above his original, agreed session fee.
