"A read in Michael Brocken's Folk Revival book that the VOTP releases was a big financial drain on Topic. Did they sell poorly?"

The Folk Revival in Britain was originally written as a phd thesis, and completed round about the time that VOTP came out. So Mike wouldn't have known what the sales figures were likely to be.

However, Tony Engle gave me a breakdown of the sales of individual volumes about two years ago. While I can't recall exactly, I think the figures ranged between 1,000 and 2,000 each.
