I was reading this forum, look at some comments eying my own music collection and reading "Down The Highway" The Life Of Bob Dylan............By Howard Sounds
One or two things got me thinking
- Apparently you can get bootleg copies of Bob Dylan's answerphone messages
- My own collection will give you access to nearly everything the Beatles committed to tape.
- An old friend of mine's musical material on youtude has been removed by Universal records...........
- Many of the last two decades biggest grossing products have been retrospective issues of out takes , unused material and left overs ( Bob Dylan Johnny Cash The Beatles etc
The things is where is the line drawn? ..............What do we have a right to hear?
Where does the artists' control come in? What are the rights of copywriters to say what we can and can not have ?
I open the floor for debate
