Subject: RE: The 'Celtic Music/Dave Bulmer' saga
Ralph,

I wasn't defending Dave Bulmer.

Just commenting on the irony of him so quickly rereleasing Calennig stuff, while Nic's material remains unavailable.

It just introduces another twist to the saga, in my opinion.

Considering your close association is with Nic, I understand how it must hurt to see that Dave Bulmer has done for Mick what everyone wishes he had done for Nic many years ago.

But to me, it suggests Dave Bulmer might not be the monster he's been made out to be. In my mind, what he didn't do for Nic, doesn't negate the compassion and kindness he has recently shown for Mick Tems.

Just shows that Dave Bulmer is probably pretty human, like the rest of us. I, like many others, don't understand his reasoning for doing what he has with back catalogue material. Maybe I'm just a tad less judgmental and condemning about it.

Life is quite bittersweet at times, and this appears to be one of them.

Best of luck to all of you with the new release.
