Thread Name: Bright Phoebus reissued
Subject: RE: Bright Phoebus reissued
You and I so far seem to be the only ones who have acknowledged the Bright Phoebus CDs
purchased days after the initial Lost Album radio show
were actually factory pressed discs, not CDrs...
But it still sounded crap, and the packaging cheap and shoddy
considering the cash in premium price charged by Celtic via Amazon.
It sounded like an amateurish LP to computer digitisation
using cheap equipment and entry level software..
Something some old uncle might knock up in his shed.
Bright Phoebus is only one of these 'Lost Albums' gathering dust and mould in Bulmer's 'archive'.
Maybe it's the highest profile serving a purpose as a test case...???
Whatever, the letter of the law,
hold enough of these letters and they can often be exploited to cunningly spell 'injustice'...
how's that for a game of scrabble...
Now let's see if this newer version of Celtic can show positivity and do a better job
of making this disputed catalogue of lost british folk music somehow available at reasonable price,
in at least non muffled and undistorted sound quality...
Before the potential market of older folkies with disposable cash
all drop dead waiting..
I like many others am a music fan and HI FI audio enthusiast,
and want to hear what I've been missing...
