Guest. The rights to the Cecilia Costello recordings expired some years ago, before the recent revision of the law on mechanical copyright. The recordings are therefore in the public domain. That is why Rod Stradling felt safe in issuing that one.

However, most of the Leader LPs were specially recorded by Leader Sound in the 1970s. Therefore, they are still in copyright - to someone.
