I hope this email finds you doing well. I am pretty sure you don’t remember me I was a promo rep for London and Toronto during your Warner days. I got your email address from Starfish and I just wanted to let you know that we are in the process of making our domestic out of print catalogue available digitally in Canada for the first time and in some cases worldwide. I just wanted to let you know that these 2 releases (City of Wood & Presented by Lake Michigan Soda) are part of our phase 1 and will be released around Canada Day this year.

Hi Ken, I remember you but not your face (yet) – congratulations for keeping your job so long.
I appreciate your email but it is also confusing because the ownership reverted back to me long ago on those records. I believe the language in the original contracts indicated after 7 years they reverted back to me…. isn’t what you are proposing complicated since I have subsequently released the records myself and do my own digital business? But sure I would be excited to understand what you mean exactly and how I might consider utilizing your capable marketing skills.

Thanx for getting back to me. I spoke with BA and they were looking at a different contract, and you are correct. I apologize for the confusion and will remove them from the schedule.

No sweat. Who/what is BA? Business affairs? Bogus advancements? Blue artists? If you are you still located still in London come say hi June 1rst when I play the APK.
They would probably expect 50% of a digital sale. What sort of advertising would they do for that? Did they sufficiently advertise my works when I was with them (uh uh). Would this make it easy to add income without doing anything (uh huh). I guess it’s not suspicious after I point out they have no rights to the records but I would be open to considering it if they explained what they would do to advertise it (what they would spend)….that they realize they made an error.
How can I be so cynical? Next thing I’m going to say Stephen Harper is a sociopath who doesn’t give a shit about creating pain and hardship vs. advancing corporate profits for the companies who have invested the most in his party.
