    Sebastian Williams "Too much/Home town boy

    Secret Stash hold the licence on Sounds Of Soul and we may possibly do something with the masters, Little Tommy was put out and sold out, I had Sebastian Williams way back and played 'Too Much' but both are top sides, very hard to find 45 as mentioned here.
  3. A bootleg be it from today or back in the 70's is still a bootleg as in unofficial unlicenced made for profit and void of any publishing royalty in essence none of the money raised from the production of such records and subsequently the sale of such records results in no fees, payments or royalties being paid to the artists and owners of the material, dress it up all you like it's illegal and a criminal act as the result of this case suggests.
  4. Being involved with Secret Stash Records in recent years I have an understanding of how this all works, we have the exclusive worldwide licence from One-derful productions to be able to legally issue the recordings, One-derful records was founded by the Leaner Brothers in Chicago and the catalog is now owned by Ernie Leaners son Eric, everything we release has to be given the green light by him and full licence fees paid in advance of any releases, there has been a great deal of time, investment and hard work to firstly go through all the masters and transfer from studio masters to modern day technology before you even start the process, this of course is the case of Ady at Kent, Rob Moss at Hayley, the Soul Junction boys and other legitimate labels, ok the licence might not be a huge amount of money but it's simply the correct thing to do, where there is somtimes a grey area is when you can't trace who owns the publishing rights to these recordings as in the annals of time with tiny long since defunct record labels tracing the ownership is well pretty much impossible making it often easy pickings for this type of activity but it still wrong but very much exploited.
  5. I know but at least 55,000 dodgy records are off the market which is a result.
  6. About time something like this happened, integrity in this game is paramount, we all know this type of activity has been going on since the inception of the rare soul scene, I have an understanding of how this all works and first and foremost it's about paying your dues and following the correct criteria throughout the process of putting out records, I do hope the record companies who own the publishing on this material hit them hard with royalties due, I do hope this will be the catalyst for the total removal of this activity but I somehow doubt it.
