Dr John It's a fair cop! (taping radio broadcasts) (20) RE: It's a fair cop! 08 Mar 99

Yes I make "illegal" recordings off the airwaves but for my own personal use. If I were to ever sell them - or sell copies - I'll certainly send the artist a proportion of the sale price. The recordings are either of live performances and, if the titles are available ,I'll buy the CD but then ,although this has certainly far better sound reproduction, it is often nowhere near as good as the live performance as in come the keyboards, choirs, orchestras etc while the live performance often has a simple accompaniment; or it is is of a long deleted LP. If I can find a good second hand copy of the LP I buy it (often at an inflated price) but then the artist doesn't get the royalties in this case either. There were some very good live perfomances on Jim Llody's "Folk on Two" (BBC) but the subsequent CD's were a dissappointment so I play the tapes. I've now replaced my Nic Jones airshots with second hand LP's which was cetainly not to his advantage either; however if the CD's ever appear I'll buy them so redressing the balance a little.
