Re: the YouTube version of "Maritime Suite" (link above)

Not sure if the upload came from a cassette as sold by PB at gigs "don't tell the record company" or the FLAC version doing the rounds on the web. Google around - the latter is out there.

I understood that there were moves to release this Suite a few years ago. Indeed the launch was mooted to be hosted by the National Maritime Museum at Greenwich on board the JST's Lord Nelson tallship. Sadly nothing came of it - the record company involved apparently cried off - I understand this was due thinking that there would not be a market to cover the costs involved in such a release.

Shame indeed.
