A Clear Track Listing Venus in Blue Jeans? Jeepers Creepers.
on 8 October 2013
LOVE AND FURY
GEMS FROM THE DECCA VAULTS UK
1961 - 1962 has
75 original recordings spread over 3 Cds.
All have been digitally remastered
These sets really are a steal at this price.
But the Decca label is one of the better ones because so many of the artistes are very familiar to the British Listener.
Why are these releases so reasonably priced?
The simple reason that these sets are as cheap as chips is that the tracks are public domain.
That means the rights to the music has gone and any old Dick or Harry can release them.
The bad news for the previous rights holders' means good news for us, the buyers for if the price is too high we will not buy.
So the sets are at a more than reasonable price.
Next year the law changes to fall in line with the Americans and the 50 year rule will be finished.
Some tracks and artists you will know, really well - others not. The Piltdown Men for example?
But that is the real joy- you just might discover some tracks you have never heard and enjoy if not then the FF feature is just for you.
However if you are like me and of a certain age you want to read which artists and tracks are featured but Amazon have scrunched up all the tracks making it hard to read so I've spaced them out so you can read them more easily.
