Tyke ,youare trying my patience ,my buying of my own work from Dave Bulmer is at this stage hypothetical.
supposing the master tapes are salvageable,after twenty years,and assuming Dave Bulmer sells them to me[of what commercial value they are to me ]depends on what he asks for them and how salvageable they are.[over 15 years of being denied my own work,I may not be entitled to legal compensation,but morally I feel I am due something ]
the pot is not calling the kettle black,.
I do not own or hoard anyone elses work, Dave Bulmer does.
Iam not an INTERNATIONAL RECORDING COMPANY I am a musician,who has never received any royalties from any recording companies apart from Brewhouse.I have produced two cds,on my own label.
I wish to have control over my own recordings,for what should be obvious reasons,rather than let them fall into the hands of others who might keep them out of the public domain,as has been done with Cheating THE tide for the last 15/18 years .
I have 3 cds on my website.,Boxing Clever has sold 800 COPIESin 8 years[100 copies a year],Your comparisons are ridiculous
Dave Bulmer has the complete Leader CATALOGUE.,including Nic Jones,who can no longer work as a professional musician.
