I intend to write to Julia, to try and further some of the things we talked about.

I will certainly include the highlights of this thread, to let Nic and Julia know how much we love them.

Hope I'm not starting a healing thread here :-) (joke)

Don't want to sound condescending, so:

Look forward to and buy 'In search of..2' (and buy it as a present for everyone you know)

Be as cross as you like... but don't directly interfere. It's their fight.

If you are, or happen to know a decent 'backcrupcy' lawyer - get in touch.

If you happen to believe in voodoo - make a wax doll of Mr Bulmer, and stab like hell...

Clare

I think one of you out there has hold of my LP that was Nicked years ago, could you please send it back, it's been so long that I've been with out it & I forgot how sad I've been since. I'd even be willing to send a finder's fee (cash, non taxable) to that fellow (NJ) that sang on the LP, in your name, of course. Barry

If anyone does know a good UK solicitor who might help in this then it's probably best to contact Pete Coe; since his email address is readily available on the UK folk Newsgroup I'll repeat it here:

Pete Coe

And while you're in touch with him remember to order a copy of his very fine CD (whose title I forget!!) to help keep Pete on the road.

One other point . . It seems likely that the New Victory Band LP WILL be re-released as a CD at some point; although it doesn't feature Nic it's still a milestone recording . .

And in my earlier pontificating on "if you like Nic you should try . . " I should have stated that of course it's all a matter of taste - but that possibly those people Dr John and I agree on represent the best bet!

> If any of us in the USA were to send away for a CD

The info you need is here. You're looking at £14 for the USA, and it has to be IMO or UK cheque.

If the US is anything like Norway then you might well be looking at paying much more than that when you take the cost of buying the cheque into account. I wondered whether they would mind us sending cash (I always have some UK currency stashed away somewhere for my next trip) so my wife just called to find out. Thrilled to find herself speaking to the man himself on the phone and had quite a long chat with him about this and that! Bottom line was it was fine to send 'real' pounds so I have 4 CDs that hopefully will arrive RSN (I only need the one, but the CD will make a great present for a select group of friends!

JohnL, That's a lovely story: quite restores my faith in mankind! Re the Dave Bulmer/Celtic Music sorry story: there has been much about this is "Folk Roots" (or Froots as it is now curiously called) some of it somewhat difficult to follow. Can anyone tell me if Bill Leader, who originally recorded Nic Jones, Tony Rose and the others, sold his catalogue to Dave Bulmer directly and why. A letter writer in Froots and myself on a previous similar threat have asked Bill Leader for his comments but to no avail. George, We'll have to agree to differ on June Tabor. How about adding Chris Foster and Cyril Tawney to the list. Dr John

The muscians whom George and I agree on are mainly, if not entirely, older artists who recorded in the 70's; survivists revivalists. This was a golden age of English folk music in my view and a lot of it is locked away in those Harrogate vaults so Dave Bulmer is not only damaging the performers but the history of folk music in general. A great pity few younger musicians are continuing this tradition. I've always thought it a good idea for someone to record the Nic Jones LP's and release them on CD - rather like Moe Asch did with the Woody Guthrie Victor recordings which were withdrawn from the catalogue for politiccal reasons. I do think we should respect the Joneses view however. I don't think the Inland Revenue would be interested as to where cheques come from: they only want their cut. I'm glad to see Pete Coe fights on. Dr John

Just to sum up-
There are 3 Nic Jones Cds available: Penguin Eggs, In Search Of, and Unearthed. Oddly enough, CAMSCO Music carries all of them. 800/548-FOLK (3655)

hello,as a luddite new to the net,I've been fascinated to read all this;I was around the english folk scene as a spring chickin -mid 70s on , and was lucky enough to see Nic Jones play.To pass on a fair (I think!) suggestion of whom to listen to for a similar 'fix',try Chris Foster's first two albums(Layers &all things in common)Nic plays fiddle on a few songs on Layers.
             all the best,Max

Ye gods, how time flies!
Nic played The Malt Shovels in Altrincham, Cheshire about 10 days before his accident. It amazes me to realise that we are talking of 20+ years ago, I really feel old now!
