Subject: RE: Celtic Music wins in court (Bright Phoebus)
Tunesmith if - as your supposition suggests - Dave had lots of copies of must have vinyl why did he not sell them once they came back into fashion? Dave may have been many things but he certainly wasn't daft.

I think you will find that Dave was talking about vinyl copies in general - a lot of which where not too saleable.

With regard to the Bright Phoebus copies with the holes off centre I would have thought that it would not be beyond the ability of a practical vinyl disc producer to merely centre the offending items and cut a larger hole as used in Juke Box 45rpm discs. Lots of people had the adapter (which sold at next to nothing) needed to play these once they were replaced by later recordings and either given away by pub landlords and the like or sold for a small amount.

Obviously there was no great demand to justify doing so.
