Bright Phoebus

Reissued at last.

Does it mean that the Nic Jones albums and the countless other gems sat on by Bulmer are going to see the light of day at last?

As I've said before, anyone who has pristine vinyl of any of them should guard them with their lives!

Can someone with more knowledge than me, explain the release history of the album?

According to this Guardian article only 2000 copies were pressed with half having off centre holes (presumably what nickp refers to).

However, as this page mentions, there was a second pressing sometime. Indeed I have a copy of the later Trailer Highway version that I bought in the late '90s.

I can't remember how much I paid for it, but it was whatever the going rate for new LPs was then, no more than that. I bought it from Decoy Records in Manchester, a now defunct specialist Jazz, Folk, Blues place with very knowledgeable staff, so if ALL vinyl versions were incredibly valuable, I'm sure they'd have noticed.

Can anyone enlighten me? Thanks,

Ed

Apparently Domino Records are to re-release Mike and Lal Waterson's Bright Phoebus album, along with some previously unreleased demos.

Interesting, and very welcome. I wonder if this means that other albums from the Leader/Trailer stable will finally become available again?

Quote: "Domino are pleased to reissue Bright Phoebus ? Songs By Lal And Mike Waterson on 4th August, this will be the first time since its release the album will be widely available. Additionally under the supervision of David Suff (Topic/Fledging) and Marry Waterson (daughter of Lal), the album has been remastered from the original tapes."

Hmm - maybe the tapes held by the Bulmer family are still OK?

Tape is quite a resilient medium, for the most part. There's no reason why tapes recorded 40 or 50 years ago shouldn't be perfectly playable as long as they haven't got wet or otherwise been mistreated.

According to Mike Waterson in the BBC radio doc, Bulmer didn't have the tapes. He wouldn't say who did but gave the impression he knew and wouldn't say.

Just received my copy today 😀

Here's a test for good quality headphones....

I was suckered into buying the Bulmer CD off Amazon several years ago; it wasn't a CDR, but a real factory pressed silver disc.

On the most beautiful lines of Lal's singing there is obvious distracting distortion,
like a bad poorly recorded needle drop..
Perhaps worn vinyl, or inept amateurish observance of recording peak levels....???

I've ordered this new 'official' release and have even better headphones nowadays..

So let's see.... fingers crossed...

why does an unplayed LP become more valuable when a CD of it is released- I have had a bootleg CD for years but don't see the logic?

Ok.. disregarding the hyped up speculative profiteering of vintage LP collecting for investment...

A mint 1st generation pressing of an LP is invaluable for archival and re-release purposes
if the original master tapes are lost, destroyed, or damaged beyond listenable repair.

Also, vintage tapes that have had a fair working life over 30 to 60 years
may well have become dulled in higher frequencies, losing Hi Fi audio detail,
which may still be apparent and salvagable on an unplayed 1st generation LP pressing.

But there are no guarantees that an immaculate mint looking LP is actually a good quality pressing.
It might well be from near the end of a run when the metal stamping plates were getting worn out.
Or pressed in lower grade noisier vinyl....

Who said anything about selling a rare unplayed vinyl. I didn't. Mine is not for sale. But if folks want to borrow it freely for remastering then I have no probs. Same goes for all of my Leader vinyls.

The U.S. release is a single CD and the Deluxe edition is only available as an English import. Right now all the sources I've checked are out of stock of the Deluxe version which indicates that they probably underestimated the demand and have sold out.
