Subject: RE: master tapes [re:Phoebus/Bulmer !!!?]
" There must be hundreds of people like me who didn't grow up with it but who now realise that this is our heritage. "

You have your heritage, you just need to search a little harder for it.   Ebay, used record shops, auctions, etc.   The LP's were not destroyed, they are just out of print. There are hundreds of recordings, books and movies that I would love to see again that just aren't available.

Sure, it would be fantastic to have pristine CD's available (if the master tapes really exist), but the "heritage" arguement won't get much support.

Bulmer appears to be a first class prick based on the reports I'm hearing, but you aren't going to see the recordings without help.

Why has Bulmer chosen to release some material and not others? Is he asking too much for Jones? Does he have an ax to grind? I know everyone wants to dismiss this story, but there has to be a reason why he is witholding this if the interest is truly as big as it seems.   Money talks.   I know these questions have been asked a million times, but no one can seem to give a logical answer - and I guess Bulmer isn't talking. A real tragedy, but the recordings are out there.
