Thread Name: Bill Leader / Trailer Records
Subject: RE: Bill Leader / Trailer Records
Just checked out Honest Johns website.

There are now quite a few (many?) Topic re-releases on CDs listed there. Do a search for 'topic' Are these from the actual masters or dubbed from pristine LPs? If they are CDs then I guess some audio decompression has been used - so they would not have the same analogue 'clarity' as the LPs themselves. But at least the older folk material is out there. But then I guess Topic are also re-releasing there back-catalogue on CDs. Huh - maybe these are Topic CDs!!!!

Sadly a search for Trailer or Leader does not produce anything.

As an aside I have the boxed set of Bill Leader's Copper set 'A Song For Every Season.' They're in pristine and unplayed condition. However I would be happy for someone to digitise the LPs for re-release onto CDs so long as the Copper Family got their due royalties. Any thoughts on this?
