Thread Name: Bill Leader / Trailer Records
Subject: RE: Bill Leader / Trailer Records
After all this discussion, I'm still not clear on who retains the rights to the Leader catalogue. Does anyone here know for certain? Did Mr. Bulmer have descendants or business partners that would have inherited the rights?

Last I had read about this, probably well over a decade ago, Mr. Bulmer was claiming that he would only release the albums on CD when the initial runs of LPs sold out. --A bizarre notion, to be sure, since all of the LPs in question had been out of print for decades. Combined with his complete lack of interest in monetizing a catalogue for which he no doubt paid good money, I assumed that Mr. Bulmer was not in his right mind.
