Subject: RE: Topic Records Folk Songs Of Britain
CAMSCO's re-issues are just that--reissues. My agreement with Peter Kennedy precluded my doing any remastering or editing; I just provided artwork, disc printing and packaging. Sound quality on most of the material is pretty good--for 1950's field recordings. Annotations, similarly, have only been edited to the extent that statements made in the present tense have been adjusted for the passage of time. These annotations vary from rather complete to non-existent.
    My comment on low sales was solely to point up the negligible cash value of whatever royalties may be due; and I've always offered to pay such royalties to anyone deservingly claiming them.
