Subject: RE: Bright Phoebus/Watersons/Bulmer
I was recently castigated in another thread by a Murkan for giving 'too much information' about an English issue and I replied that there were constant reminders that this was a US forum and I was simply filling in background to bridge two nations divided by a common language (and sometimes the reverse).

You do do things very differently over there: contracts, royalties, indeed the whole musbiz set-up is not (yet) universally globalised. We even spell that last word differently. And the contributions from Mr Greenhaus indicate that he really does not grasp how seriously some of us take the ongoing CM tragedy.

So it's a difficult course to steer when, time and time again, the 'truth' is (usually) 'civilly' related, only for the usual suspects to churn out (whether through ignorance or bloodymindedness) the same old, now becoming very smelly, herrings.

So I apologise (there's another one) Joe, if you are finding this tedious. But I hope you will endeavour (and another) to understand ust how important it is.

Meanwhile, I await news of the CM AGM. As I have re-cookied. George/Tyke (or anyone else) could PM me. Though I'd rather see it posted here. It's not off-topic after all, is it?
