Is this for real?

Posted

Anyone know anything about this reissue. Given that Charles Johnson's "Never had a love so Good" goes for about £500 these days, it's nice that someone has reissued it, but as is often the case, I can't help but be suspicious - especially since I can't find any info on the label, Burnett's of Detroit, other than it's clearly a UK operation. Please enlighten me if you can!

Don't know who's behind it, but seems to be perfectly legit and licensed from Henry Stone.

That label has recently reissued Chapter Five as well (with a brand new recording on the flipside by a group featuring members from the original Chapter Five line-up).

Does it not seem strange that the B side is a group from Barrow in Furness in the UK ? Like Chalky this has come up before recently and I believe this person will know as he listed it on Discogs (and the others)

The fact it says "licensed from" means bugger all.  And I'm sure one of the dodgy bunch operated out of Suffolk (Ipswich).

How accessible is Henry Stone's music since he passed away?

Think you're right chalky. And just because their sentenced doesn't me someone else may be running the operation for them.??? As for Burnett well like yourself I know that name well. Maybe a coincidence but instinct tells you otherwise. Time will tell. As you stated they did sell some legit stuff.

According to wikipedia Parlaphone have owned the rights to the T.k catalog since 2013, so I assume it would have had to of been licenced from them, prior to that it was Rhino who I think did a few comps.

I don't quite know what you're getting at, but Chapter Five were from Barrow-In-Furness. 

The Charles Johnson 45 has got Lew Kirton on the flipside.

The Burnett's label is obviously from the UK.

What both myself and Chalky are getting at is that there are so many bootlegs around at the moment and we just feel this one is "odd" and are trying to clarify with the knowledge that is on Soul Source if it is a genuine licensed release or NOT :)

Yes, I totally understand that. I just didn't get what Chapter Five being from Barrow-In-Furness had to do with the Charles Johnson/Lew Kirton 45.

Sorry that was the other release, the confusion I think is the name of the label, as "Detroit" has not been moved to Suffolk in England, as far as I aware :)

The label carries the name of a well known bootlegger. The label directors were implicated and sentenced on the recent bootlegging case. Surely that would raise doubts straight away.

Just because the label claims a license was taken is as I said often meaningless. The very presence is meant to give  a/the release some authenticity when in reality they are probably far from it, certainly the US material.  I mean who is going to check up?

Huh? I've got a white label (obvious boot) of Charles Johnson somewhere which I am pretty sure has Lew Kirton on the other side. Had it for years though, can't even remember where it came from, charity shop or something..Is this Burnett one new?
