Mods! This has got to stop!  

How come every single thread gets hijacked by a bunch of geeks who turns it into an anal discussion about

a) Bowie's contracts with different record companies and
b) the rights to Bowie's past work?

You start a thread about masturbation, about how gorgeous Bowie looks in that picture, about who's nagging on DD74 or not, about the weather -- no matter what, sooner or later that NVQ posse has twisted and turned it into a four-page (and I view 20 posts per page) discussion about precisely the two subject matters labeled a) and b) above (granted, they do have an overlap).

I say we need some brave moderators to step in and tell people where it's at. Or - more radically - ban registered users from the NVQ forum. Something needs to be done now!

or David Bowie.

Wouldn't it be good if Bowie could buy back the rights to his pre-1969 work, we might get a really good, comprehensive compilation of all this music then, rather than the mish-mash that is around now.

Does Bowie own the rights to 'Ernie Johnston'? It was done in 1968. Apart from this, there was another shelved 1968 album that was a follow up to the debut.

Re: Mods! This has got to stop! new [re: Adam]  

This selection of songs was recorded on Bowie's 4 track tape recorder at the beginning of 1968, as this was a year before Bowie's final sessions for Decca then he would have been still under contract with Deram, but as these were recorded domestically I suppose that the rights belong with Bowie. A copy of the full tapes was sold by auction in the mid nineties and this recording was up for sale on eBay in Autumn 2005. It ended up being withdrawn as the seller seemed to have cold feet about selling it.

Irrespective of who owns the tapes officially, of course the intellectual rights remain with Bowie, as he would have copyright. One of the provisos of the sale in the 90s is that they could not be redistributed as this would break the copyright.

Ant, we have mentioned what is on Ernie Johnson before, but it is all written up on in both Pegg and on Ruud's site.

I doubt there was ever enough recorded material for a 'full' album, only a handful of finished recordings.

I've read that many of Bowie's old record companies dropped him because he asked for too much money.

That's a vicious rumor.

It was actually too many boys he wanted.

Exactly. The contract had a limit of 4, but he was asking for more.
