Feel free to add-to or correct the above data, but -- hey -- let's not have thread creep ;
you can cheer Nic Jones and boo Celtic Records within the other threads.
You may be sure that if and when the proposed follow-up album to In Search of Nic Jones
is released, in will be announced at Mudcat in the first 24 hours.

I'm sure this will prove useful (even I have Pengun Eggs. Guitar nerds (nurds?) like Rick will find the Mike Raven link useful (as I do, I had a website address for him which is defunct). Only Steve Parkes and I remember the Black Country Three, I suppose! (apologies for thread creep).

Unsubstantiated information.
I was recently informed by a reliable source that Dave Bulmer, who was sitting on the Trailer tapes, claims he has handed them, and the rights, over to the Jones family.
Bulmer has of late started to release bits of the Trailer/Rubber/Black Crow material, (Rab Noakes, Mike and Lal Waterson, Alan Taylor, Dick Gaughin, Woody Guthrie tribute, etc).
The quality is pretty shoddy, thin paper insert copy of LP cover, burned CDs, but at least he is putting them out. It was while I was bemoaning him sitting on Nic's stuff while releasing the above, that I was told Bulmer claimed that Nic was now in possesion of them.
If anyone who is in touch with the Jonses, can verify this we can stop campaining and get on with promoting them when thay are released.
love, john.

re "Dita's" comments. As far as I know, Mr B has not handed any rights to the Jones Family as of today!! (Just spoke to his missus!) The sequel to "In Search of" is nearly this space, although we're still looking for some mid -70's live stuff...(No more Rose of Allendales.....Please!!) It might even turn into a double...Yes! E me if you have anything of interest Cheers Ralphie

Can you clarify Dita's comments a bit further (though I know they were made awhile ago) re: the tapes? Your response said that Bulmer hadn't turned the *rights* over to Nic, but you didn't say who has the masters/tapes?

I ask because I'm wondering if the new CD is remastered stuff from the stuff of Nic's that Bulmer previously "was sitting on"?

Hello "Curious!!"
All the tracks on "Unearthed" (apart from "Warlike Lads of Russia".......Originally done for a Fred Woods LP, many tears ago) Are previously Unreleased recordings...
Yes, there are a few songs that have been previously released on the "Lost" 4 albums. But, in our defence, the moral high ground lies with the family, and, as the recordings all come from private sources, and did not appear on the " Lost" LP's. It is only proper that Nic's fans have the opportunity to hear him at his best..(or at least the best that remains!).
As far as CM Music is concerned....I have no more words to describe my feelings for them.
To deny a musician of Nic's talent his just reward for his work .(not to mention the royalties)....for 20 years....??
Don't even start me on that one...
Just do Nic and Julia a favour.....Buy one for your friends for Christmas....I'm going to !
Regards Ralphie
Maybe you could send Mr Bulmer a Xmas pressie..! (Only Joking!)

Freudian slip there..
2nd line should read..."Many YEARS ago"..although "Tears" might be more appropriate..
Also...I must re-iterate....There are a few tracks that originally appeared on LP's 1-4.....but, ALL the recordings on Unearthed (apart from Warlike), are from private recordings.....NOT the original LP's...
God....maybe I'm getting scared of a law suit...
(Sorry Mr Sharpley!)
Love Ralphie.....late at night, and , glad it's over
