Thread Name: The 'Celtic Music/Dave Bulmer' saga
Subject: RE: The 'Celtic Music/Dave Bulmer' saga
winick/Steve, Please read my thread again I know that I'm DYSLEXIC but it seems you have got hold of the wrong end of the stick. However the earth is magnetic and tape will deteriorate regardless of weather you make copies or not is true! I did say that! However this is speculation on how many master tapes are still in existence. I fear that many will have been recycled I'm not just talking Nick Jones here. Put yourself in the place of a record/distribution company. If people think you have valuable master tapes in your possession your company will appear to be worth more. Would you want people to know that you had recycled/recorded over irreplaceable material. You see at the time you did not know that Two Artists mentioned in this thread would not be able to re-record there work due to one tragic accident and one suicide. Your best bet is to keep quite and let other speculate do you not think?

My main point is that you should not confuses business and friendship you should seek legal advise before signing any contract's. Even if the contract is coming from someone who is purporting friendship towards you in this thread. Oh and just in case you or anyone feels insulted at my last remark! The answer is that if they were true friends they would have already insisted that their friend did seek independent legal advise before making any contractual commitment. If you do not you will loose yourself a lots of friends which it is seems obvious that Dave Bullmer & Co have already done.
