I have long thought that Bulmer's only interest in Leader / Trailer was in the stock of unsold LPs.

Apparently you lack basic reading-comprehension skills, as is often the case with anonymous trolls. I deduced or implied no such thing. I merely inquired who, after Dave Bulmer's death, retained the rights to the catalogues he purchased. I am ignorant of that information.

Honest Jon's does exist.

The utterly uncalled-for condescension of your post merits no further response.

By the way, in recent years -- despite the downturn in the sales of music on physical media -- there have been hundreds if not thousands of reissues of remarkably obscure albums, some of which have done reasonably well. Labels such as Light in the Attic, Numero Group, Missisippi Records, and so forth have been in business a decade or more selling LPs and CDs of music that is much more obscure than that of Nic Jones or Dick Gaughan. The owners of these labels have been able to negotiate with the rights owners and make it worth their while to reissue the material. Certainly no one is getting rich in this market but it is nonetheless been proven to be a viable one.

In light of that, the continued insistence by some on this thread (often but not always cast in fairly abusive terms) that the Trailer catalogue plainly has no financial value -- and that /must/ be the reason by Bulmer never got around to exploiting it -- rings hollow. It's possible that nobody made an offer to Bulmer that he felt was fair. But to flatly assume that the market for a reissued Nic Jones LP is so vanishingly small as to make a reissue out of the question seems unwarranted to me. I suspect that will not stop people from repeating the assertion each time this thread is revived.

cross-post

I bought the Honest Jon's reissue when it was released in 2005.

As for LPs, I have bought many Trailer and Leader LPs on eBay, however in many cases they fetched very handy sums.

I was never made aware of Mr. Bulmer selling those LPs directly. Perhaps he did so back in the 1970s and 1980s. All of the Trailer/Leader LPs I've purchased in the past 20 years were used copies, being resold by individuals or stores. There was a brief moment when poor-quality CD copies of some Trailer albums were available, but these were mastered from vinyl copies and quickly went out of print (they too fetch high prices now).

So where can one get the Honest Jon recording?

As compilations go it seems to be a cracker.

I will apologise (slightly) to Matthew in that I misinterpreted his query as being yet another dig at Dave Bulmer.

That came in the following posting.

As regards where the ownership lies there are enough clues in the various threads to indicate that Dave does indeed have a widow and children and business partners who (unless Dave willed the ownership to a dogs home or similar) will have inherited.

The "Never The Same" compilation can be had for fairly cheap, e.g.

So I checked it out and apart from one site offering a new item to be shipped from Japan at a price over and above what I would be prepared to pay and "only one in stock - order now", the rest were second hand items.

Further investigation revealed that the CD in question appears to be the only one by this outlet offering English folk.

So once more the question is - why?

It also gets one good and one dodgy review. You pays your money and you takes your chance!

With regards to any agreement with Celtic Music perhaps if it is so important to know it is open to whoever to ask the Honest Jon management.

£9.99 direct from the excellent and eclectic Honest Jon's. It's a corking album, and all above board in terms of licencing & legality.

Just checked out Honest Johns website.

http://honestjons.com/shop/search/topic

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?

Actually I am 'quizzy.' The Watersons and Coppers recorded on Trailer / Leader but some of their recordings are being re-issued on Topic. How on earth did Bulmer allow that?

Don't know why I decided to have a quick look at this thread but by an amazing coincidence I am looking at a "Never the Same" CD rescued in curiosity from a rummage box - in surprisingly good order.
Will probably have listen in the next couple of days and if there is anything worth coming back on I will do so.

Probably left for the family to sort and at least it didn't finish up in a skip.
