Subject: RE: Celtic Music wins in court (Bright Phoebus)
There is now a market for vinyls, and a lot of artists are offering these alongside CDs and downloads. My comments were really about the economics of releasing LPs at the time Bulmer first acquired the catalogue. There would have been a greater financial risk, and at the time he might have felt the demand might not justify it.
Some of these albums, including Bright Phoebus and Nic Jones's output, have acquired near-mythical status through being made unavailable for so long, and if they were to be reissued now I think there would be strong demand, if only from a new generation wanting to know what all the fuss was about.
