Thread Name: The 'Celtic Music/Dave Bulmer' saga
Subject: RE: The 'Celtic Music/Dave Bulmer' saga
Sticking to facts, as newly resolved to do . .

Gaughan was connected to Bulmer long before the MU "listing". However he's another artist who's swapped labels a lot; I'm pretty certain (so much for sticking to facts!) the early Gaughan albums were aquired by Bulmer; they certainly weren't made for him.

The Gaughan/Bulmer relationship is a long and complex one; I suggest anyone who want to know more about it contacts Gaughan directly.

Thinking of this, there is an angle which hasn't been mentioned before in this thread. Gaughan is on record saying that, when Bulmer acquired rights in much of this material, it appeared to be the best thing that could happen to it; safeguarding its future. Dick's opinion is that those hopes turned out to be misplaced.

English Jon/Pavane - can I suggest you email me privately? (ghawes at advaoptical dot com)?

And I can't remember who's on Fair Annie, but I THINK I know where our copy is . .
