"Jim - I have no problems at all with his remakes...."
Sorry Mick, I wasn't having a go at you - or anybody in particular. Nor was I trying to excuse Bert's occasionally cavalier attitude with his information. I just wanted to point out that it's very easy to throw out the baby with the bathwater - and folk academia seems to have its share of people who work on the old building trade principle that it's far easier to pull down something somebody else has built than construct something yourself!
Looking forward to Bert's long awaited biography - as I'm sure many others are.
