"Very interested to see that MKF 12 includes 'The Halliard', myself, Dave Moran & Nic Jones. Are these downloads legal? ? Nigel Paterson, mandolin 'The Halliard'"

They would appear not, Nigel. A bit of 'home taping', as someone else put it above. Nigel, do you have a Bandcamp page? If I were you, I would set one up, grab the Halliard stuff from the links above and offer the music as a "Pay what you want" option on your Bandcamp page. Give the money to charity or something. Whenever these sorts of things crop up - as they so often do - I'm torn between thinking: "isn't it great that this music that would otherwise not be heard at all is available to hear"; and thinking it's a bit of a shame that any performers of the music that are still around don't have any say about anything.
