Thread Name: Nic Jones Unearthed
Subject: RE: Nic Jones Unearthed
Doesn't alter what I say one iota. Why do you assume that people will try out the internet to find out more about him? They are more likely to go to the CD racks in HMV or Virgin or type in his name in Amazon and leave it at that. Those of us here are more likely to be the more devoted Nic Jones fans and will make an extra effort to get his work, but the casual listener wont and it is the casual listener that makes up the bulk of the CD buying public. I cannot agree that Nic needs an appearance on TV to generate interest in him. THe interest is already there. When you think about it, most artists in the CD shops don't have any coverage apart from the appearance of their disc in the racks.
I agree with Jeanie about the Halliard recording. It is excellent as a whole and a delight to have a Nic rarity. I bought that on the net.
