Whomever own the rights needs to release his catalog again on disc YES the silver one everyone seems to have abandoned.

Would be nice to see a small boxed set possibly remastered.

With the amount of patronage to his memory surprises me no one has kept his music out here. Christ how many times have the Beatles and Kind Crimson been re-released?

It's a tough one, I for example bought his LP's when released then the same again every one of his CD reissues or new releases.
His music was widely distributed and available for a long time and many collectors would have the lot while some may have opted for selected releases.

Not sure where the market would be if any, or how would it be done: remastering is questionable as there is not much wrong with the originals, invidual CD's or a box set even with 1-2 extra unreleased albums if they existed would force those who only chase 2-3 CD's to buy the lot again, and people like me to buy just the unreleased material...

Could it be more of a rememberance factor than music demand?

I would guess the rights lie with his family, and I guess they do not feel too bothered to reissue his albums because they probably arent businesspeople or musically too involved. Making CDs these days doesnt exactly seem to be a worthwhile thing to do.

As for the remasters... I know where the original multi-track tapes are, and I have actually been approached to sift through them and -- if possible -- remix and remaster them as true to Mikes spirit as possibly can be. I dont know what state the tapes are in, though -- magnetic tape tends to deteriorate over the years.

I for one would be happy to deliver a decent-sounding version of "Point of Impact" (not lifted from vinyl) plus, perhaps, some unreleased material from the vaults.

Stephen

this sounds like an interesting thing to get going somehow, as this is one of his best and most appreciated efforts;
maybe an expanded Mobineko cd-pressing of a few hundred is doable in a viable manner

There is no unreleased material as I checked with his sister Cindy just before his web site was closed down. As has been pointed out, his family are not business people out to make a fast buck, pound or euro. Surprised

That his family is not out to make money off of him is all well and good, it sad that his musical efforts appear to be destined to die with him. Out pf print, the masters in limbo, no one that can take guardianship of the music that remains, that future looks bleak.

I wonder if setting up a tribute page on Bandcamp where his music could be made available for downloading with the proceeds going to an appropriate charity designated by the family might be acceptable?

Another question that comes to mind would be, what about the albums that were also released through Ariola/BMG? That would be all albums from "Regions of Sunreturn" to "Images", with the exception of "Point of Impact" which had never been widely available. To what extent are the Ariola people still involved or are the Bertelsmann people keeping an eye on the copyrights? Contracts expire, but has anybody seen those?

The next question would be a technical one... where to get a Teac 3340 from? A properly working one, that is? And how playable will the tapes be?

And finally, with plenty of LPs sold -- and still quite a few CDs as well --, who would buy newly reissued albums when the original ones are still around and easily to be had off eBay or Discogs? There really has to be something going for it to make a release worthwhile -- the "Basement Tapes", for starters, or the "Serendipity" releases Mike talked about.
