Doctor John Nic Jones (65* d) RE: Nic Jones 22 Jan 00


The muscians whom George and I agree on are mainly, if not entirely, older artists who recorded in the 70's; survivists revivalists. This was a golden age of English folk music in my view and a lot of it is locked away in those Harrogate vaults so Dave Bulmer is not only damaging the performers but the history of folk music in general. A great pity few younger musicians are continuing this tradition. I've always thought it a good idea for someone to record the Nic Jones LP's and release them on CD - rather like Moe Asch did with the Woody Guthrie Victor recordings which were withdrawn from the catalogue for politiccal reasons. I do think we should respect the Joneses view however. I don't think the Inland Revenue would be interested as to where cheques come from: they only want their cut. I'm glad to see Pete Coe fights on. Dr John
