Thread Name: Bright Phoebus reissued
Subject: RE: Bright Phoebus reissued
Does anyone know what the situation is regarding all the rest of the material that Dave Bulmer had acquired the rights to?
Did Domino acquire the rights (and original tapes) from the Bulmer estate?
There was so much wonderful music issued on Leader and Trailer and I'm sure there would be sufficient interest for a reissue program to be financially viable. With all the interest in Nic Jones I would think a box set of all his Trailer recordings - including possible unissued material would do well.
I remember years ago when I used to deal with Mr. Bulmer (a story in itself)he told me that he had lots of live recordings of folk artists - that could be very interesting if it were possible to get access to this material.
He also had rights to the Rubber and Black Crow labels which also housed some very fine music as did his own Celtic Music label.
Does anyone know who runs the Bulmer estate? His wife, his former partner?
From a purely selfish point of view I would hate to shuffle off this mortal coil without having the chance to hear some unissued Dick Gaughan, Nic Jones, etc. but that may very well be the case. At least I have most of the Leader/ Trailer LPs that I want but would prefer well documented, beautifully remastered CDs.
