Rest assured that Nics family would be very unhappy with people downloading MP3 files of the "Lost" albums...As am I
Bootlegging is odious anyway, but, particularly in the case of Nic....
As the producer of "Unearthed" I am as angry as all of you when it comes to the reluctance of certain parties to give back what is rightfully Nics...to Nic....But, so it goes.
By this persons antics (se threads too numerous to name), Nic and his family have been denied their rightful royalties on his music, for nearly 20 years, (The anniversary of the crash is any day now)
The financial result for a crippled man with two young children, was horrendous.
This is precisely the reason that Dave Emery and myself have persued the "Archive" projects.
Oh Yes, I am angry....but at least all the profits from "In Search of" and " Unearthed" go direct to the family.
If you have any conscience at all, but can't resist the temptation of downloading MP3 files, could I urge you, as Noreen says, to write a cheque to Mollie Music?
