Subject: RE: Yesterday - Radio Shows. Today - Copying/Selling Music

I forget where (internet) I read it, but Capitol (and I'm sure others) would store their tapes at any vacant place they could find, even in the back of theaters. When they were purchased by EMI, it was said that EMI had to call all US recording studios to find if any had tapes of Capitol's. They also discovered the tapes were deteriorating. Analog to digital transfers became important. A couple Beatles bootlegs surfaced around the late '80's, with sound that embarrassed Capitol. How Capitol carelessly stored their tapes, made it convenient for bootleggers to "borrow".
Jim added: Incidentally, did you hear the Jimmy Jay Lettermen show. It was/is excellent - a revelation in some ways.
No, Jim, I haven't!
Jim ended with: So perhaps I am being premature and all the LPs will make it to market. Then the question is - will I live that long?
I know exactly what you mean! Look at how long it took for the Cameo-Parkway material to be released, on CD. I'm sure some of who would have enjoyed it, are now deceased.
