Thread Name: 'Celtic Music/Dave Bulmer' saga: Pt 2
Subject: RE: 'Celtic Music/Dave Bulmer' saga: Pt 2
Forgive me if this has been aired elsewhere as I have only just discovered this site, but one point that was made somewhere along the string but does not appear to have been picked up on is that at least some, if not all of CM's reissues are burnt on recordable CDs rather than pressed. I don't know what the current estimation of the lifetime of a "burnt" CD is, but I assume that it is less than for a pressed one. If you bought one of the CDs from the now closed Glasgow shop you were informed of this but I wonder if other retailers and purchasers are aware. I know that some artists who do not have recording contracts sell there own "burnt" recordings at gigs but did not think it true of recordings of labels available through shops, am I mistaken?

Incidentally, how did the New Victory Band liberate One More Dance and Then?
