... and if it all goes horribly wrong there's still time for Get to Me to be Robbie's comeback single.  Roll Eyes

Sometimes the grass is greener, you just have to figure out if it's because the other field is full of shit.

I had a look on ebay last night and didn't see it, but if someone did that, then that's shocking and I certainly have no excuse for that.

Sharing's a bit iffy, but saved by it's benevolence that someone, somewhere probably bought it.  But making a profit off it when you claim to be a fan of someone is just not on.

That's a rotten thing to do and they should have their earlobes cut off.

I feel I need to clear this up.

I "advertised" it on Ebay a few months back - long before I even had a copy of it. Joe and I were bored and thought we'd test the market, so to speak. Thee was no intent - or ability obviously - to profit from it. Cost me a fiver in fact.

It's a great album. Walking Through You could be a minor hit but Ryko don't do singles. It will sell in the low thousands and will not chart. Ryko simply don't have the mechanics to secure chart entries. They're a sort of local authority rest home for the once-slightly-famous. I agree with David that he probably got a miserly retroactive advance to cover the recording costs.

The activities of a couple of dozen obsessives (including me) during the interregnum between recording and release will make no difference whatsoever to the fate of Rebound/WILF - it will sell to maybe 50-60% of the population that bought the last Dels album and virtually no-one else. Sad but true because, like I say, it's a truly great album.

Fair enough.  If I'd known it was you Rory, I wouldn't even have questioned the motivations.  i don't think you're in a position where you need to profit from JC's career.

i agree with you about its prospects.

Why drag me into this when you know I had nothing to do with it? I don't get that? To me that is way over the top in my book and could of jeopardized JC signing a record deal.

Bad form on this one mate, really bad form...
