Notwithstanding that you can now get all the Oblivion releases for free (including all the credits, liner notes, bonus tracks, and extras), we understand that many people of a, uh, certain age, like to buy CDs.
DON’T BUY THESE FRED McDOWELL CDs on Tomato Records or Blue Labor Records. They’re unauthorized, they’re pirated, and besides, HEADS UP, you can get the whole record for free right here.
Tom Pomposello had a deeply emotional relationship with Fred McDowell and he moved heaven and earth to keep Live in New York in print. In the 80s we made a short term licensing deal with our “friends” jazz composer Heiner Stadler and his partner songwriter Kent Cooper from Labor Records. Heiner subsequenly had a producer relationship with shady, unscrupulous record entrepreneur Kevin Eggers of Tomato Records (neé Poppy Records). Without permission, Heiner gave Kevin the Gaslight masters, and Kevin has been releasing them for more than 15 years.
DON’T BUY THESE FRED McDOWELL CDs. You can get the whole record and bonus tracks for free right here.
