Topic owns the copyright to this album. I'd suggest you remove the link pronto (and, no, it doesn't matter that it's not available on CD!).

Who is Anonymous and what does it matter what he or she suggests? I suggest that you don't react to every comment which whoever posts - not even to this one! Thank you ... and goodnight.

I would like to disagree strongly with the removal of this link on the basis of the comments of someone who doesn't even have the courage to identify him (or her) self ...... and yes it DOES matter if it is out of print, because Topic are notorious for not keeping their catalogue running, unlike Folkways, with whom they LOVE to be compared.

I would like to object to an anonymous poster with no necessary association with Topic calling for the removal of this post. Topic have been quite unprepared to make this recording available to the public, and you have.

Whatever inthealley might think (and yes, I do have strong connections with Topic Records), one of the tracks on 'In the Tradition' features on the forthcoming 7-CD Topic set 'Three Score and Ten'. That's enough reason itself for the removal of the download link.

Perhaps inthealley might spend a little time updating his/her knowledge of UK copyright legislation.

Dear Mr Topic, you are fighting a losing battle and an immoral one at that.

You may own the copyright, but you do not have the *moral* right to lock music away from the public, just because you *might* want to make a few pennies on it next year or next decade.

You may have won this round, but in the end you will lose the war.

Then you will have to get a real job, instead of spending your days on your bum behind a computer screen, looking for music lovers to hassle.

You and your kind are the scabs of the 21st century.

Topic, like any other decent, well-run label, pays royalties to its artistes. So, it's not just the label that loses income via downloads which breach copyright, but the musicians and singers (who will benefit from said labels future plans).

One track on a 7-CD compilation? That's enough reason for me, not to buy that compilation? That's enough reason to lock away a whole album from interested listeners?

Maybe anonymous would like to explain the strong connections with Topic Records? Maybe anonymous is just someone who owns a copy of In The Tradition and wants to keep it rare?

Future plans? The release of one track? Sorry I don't get theses arguments. Don't count on me!

"The moral right"????

Are you folks claiming that someone who "owns" the rights to a body of work doesn't have the right to stop people who do not from accessing it?

If so, I'll be over to use your computer!! And you would be a "scab of the next century" if you tried to stop me.

I love the site - but not the comments by morons!!

'Copyright' was intended to prevent people claiming a work as their own and to profit unfairly as a consequence. Since providing this download doesn't affect Topic's income from the LP (zero), and is not itself a source of income, there is no adequate reason to prevent it.

Jayz, that's one heck of a misunderstanding of copyright legislation!

Topic made all efforts possible to deprive the musicians of any income from this work, for, haw much, quarter a century? Now, they throw'em some bones like a one track on 7-CD compilation?
How generous. Truly, truly it is said,
that the only intention of copyright legislation is to rob the artists, the autors, and the musicians.

I love you, commies, nice work. Stalin would be proud of you.

Ahhh, copyright! As far as I know, copyright was invented by the church to keep things under control: when the letterpresses first came up, information could be spread far more widely than before, which for sure was not in the interest of the church. So they gave the right to copy only to certain letterpresses to keep under control which information was spread to the people. Seems things don't change that much.

By the way: still no clarification from anonymous concerning the strong relationship with topic? Would have been interested.

I'd love some of what your smoking, pilpilon, and only a feckwitted Murican could write such garbage!

Topic hasn't been depriving anybody of anything. Do get a grip (or are you still playing the pink oboe?).

You never know, it might be available elsewhere, say by a Rapidshare link for example.
