Fossil Nic Jones Project (31) RE: Nic Jones Project 18 Nov 13

There is an elephant in the room of this thread.

Part of the Nic Jones mystique is that the folk audience heard so little of him after his accident. And that was/is down to the late and very un-lamented Dave Bulmer, who held the copyrights on many of Nic's best songs and recorded performances and utterly refused to release any of them, despite being urged to by many in the folk community of the time. Thereby denying Nic and Julia income which I am sure would have been very useful to them in the days and years after his accident.

These issues were thrashed out at great length over many threads in the Mudcat Forum. I have no connection with any of the protagonists, other than admitting a deep and abiding liking for Nic Jones the performer. But the Bulmer story is part of the whole and should not be forgotten.

Does anyone know what has happened to the Bulmer estate since his death? Is there any prospect at all of hearing the suppressed Nic Jones material? Perhaps on another thread...
