Jim Carroll Ewan MacColl on Bandcamp (34) RE: Ewan MacColl on Bandcamp 31 May 20


Ho hum
What you are doing is limiting the dissemination of Ewan's songs to a wider audience by allowing a commercial company to hang a price tag on it
I've just checked - to purchase a copy of the single album (with notes notes) 'Second Crop' costs 10 - that's pretty expensive by anybody's money for an on-line download
Musical traditions downloads with the option of scanning in a full set of notes - 1 oe 2 a single album, 4 a double album, 6 a three album set
10 a single album is pretty steep and hardly conducive to attracting new people to Ewan's music
I hope that a great deal of mastering has gone into the old recordings for sale
Out of interest, how much did you pay for your copy of Second Shift or is your concern for Ewan and his family merely rhetorical ?
I don't suppose you're interested in how much time, sweat and personal sacrifice the people we worked with put into putting this sharing project together

If the family are concerned at what I am doing, I hope they will complain to me
Jim
