Like Ralphie, I am currently furious at those Guests in this thread who lack either the courage or the honesty to attach their names to their ill-informed views. However, my guess is that at least one of them is Mr or Mrs Bulmer attempting to muddy the water.
There are two sides to any story. I went to a great deal of trouble to put aside my personal feeling and present a calm and balanced account of the Bulmer saga. Guest the gutless, where is the furst mention of Bulmer's agreement to release Mick Tems back catalogue? Why, in my original account . . what a surprise.
Let me make this quite plain . . . I PERSONALLY know several people who have direct dealings with Mr Bulmer. Several of them are people I have known for many years and whose work and integrety I trust ABSOLUTELY. Is the anonymous Guest saying these people are liars? That they have conspired together to blacken the good name of Mr Bulmer?
I have also spoken to at least one person who has defended Mr Bulmer strongly, a couple of people who are quite happy in their dealings with him, and a couple of others who see at least some "mitigating circumstances" to his behaviour. And my conclusion is that EVEN making maximum allowance for people's views being coloured by their own experiences and feelings, my original account here is more than fair to Mr Bulmer.
Now if and when the anonymous guest(s) come up with some evidence for their defence of Bulmer I'll be more than happy to re-consider my views. Until then I fear I feel, along with my own anger, great sadness that through their ignorance they slight those varioous artists I know to have suffered, to a greater or lesser degree, through their involvement with Dave Bulmer.
