Great Great Great Album-at last!!!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: All Over The Show (Audio CD)
Ok-first of all if the below reviewer is correct re royalties then thats bad news for the band but surprising also as its been released by esoteric who are the guys behind atomhenge who have been re-releasing all the Hawkwind stuff so seems strange but sad if true.
However, to review this album for its quality then this is absolutely a must for fans of the band or anyone interested in the genre. It contains some of their best songs and the live versions of 70s youth and end of the beginning are far better than the studio versions. You also get the amazing surgeons knife and think for yourself which are outstanding and as with many here and now songs not otherwise available. In my opinion this along with what you see is what you are and coaxed out of oxford are the bands best output-the studio recordings simply don't do them justice. So do not hesitate and buy this-it maybe be reluctantly re the benefit to the band but it truely is a brilliant album.

As label manager I can say Esoteric/Cherry Red have a contractual obligation pay royalties to whoever we licence from and whom the copyright owner is. In this case we have to pay another label who are the copyright holders. It is then up to that label to pay any royalties due, (if they are due) which depends on various factors such as recoupment etc. Unfortunately we only have control over artists royalty payments when the deal was a direct one with an artist who owns the copyright on their material.
Publishing though is a different matter and that is paid direct to the MCPS by Cherry Red and in turn goes to the songwriters within the band if its original material or their publishing company if they use a publisher.

That makes sense - as I recall that H&N had lot of problems with Charly Records - who I presume this was licensed from..
There was talk a few years ago of a properly mastered version of the album with additional live tracks recorded at the same time - but not sure what happened to it...
