Thread Name: The 'Celtic Music/Dave Bulmer' saga
Subject: RE: The 'Celtic Music/Dave Bulmer' saga
You must try to understand that Bulmer is a maniac collector of "things". If you.ve ever been toi Harrogate to his works , or to any of his other enterprises you will see that they are full of what is only realy described as "junk". He cant resist it. The works are like Steptoes Yard. The point I'm making is that in regard to copyrights, he HAS to own them. Then nobody else can own them. It's like those who buy stolen Old Master paintings - they cant do anything with them , but THEY OWN THEM. Its nearly a sexual gratification thing. Somnebody questioned the sanity of Bulmer - you probably all must realise that he's pretty near the dividing line between genious and insane. He is a manipulator who has an insane wish to "see the big picture" and then acquire it.

Why not pay a visit to North Works in Harrogate and view with wide eyed abandon the piles of redundant machinery, records, books et al.

Regrettably for all of us while he's got the tapes we will never see them (or hear them). They are HIS, all HIS.
