Heard the Radio 4 documentary on Listen Again - what a sorry mess.

It seems to me that as far as Dave Bulmer is concerned, Bright Phoebus IS available. He still has vinyl copies, and once in a while he has run off some CD-R copies. He doesn't think there is any money to be made from doing anything else about it, and he doesn't feel he owes the artists anything.

But there seem to be plenty of people on here who think otherwise. Topic make money. Free Reed do an excellent job of re-packaging vintage recordings, and (I assume) make money at it.

I don't know Dave Bulmer, but he must have a price for handing over the rights to the recording - somewhere between a fiver and a million. And remember, according to Mike Waterson, DB does not have the master tapes.

So how about some people who really believe in this LP teaming up with a label who know how to promote & distribute, work out what a realistic price might be, and make DB an offer? I can't believe he'll keep saying "No" if money is waved in his face.
