Thread Name: Making folk club recordings available
Subject: RE: Making folk club recordings available
I'd agree with Steve's positive pragmatic position..

..except..

Families who inherit an artist's estate are in some cases greedy talentless stupid philistine control freak parasites,
who are the last people who should ever have been allowed to become custodians of any musical legacy...

In that instance, such families are maybe best not to be heeded,
and the amateur recorded music should still be made carefully available, despite their self defeating negativity...???

Caution, and short term expedient expendable anonymous download links can take care of that hindernce to sharing...

Fortunately, not all familes are so wretched...

If I'd become a moderately well known folk artist, and dropped dead without a will,
I can think of bickering cousins who'd be a nightmare if they took control of my unreleased recordings...
