5. Where can I get the Five Hand Reel recordings?
Sorry, I haven't the faintest idea.
There seems to be some confusion about who actually owns those recordings. The only thing I'm sure of is that, whoever owns them, it's not the band!
There was a compilation released a few years ago but I have no idea if this was a bootleg. I have heard that some people are resorting to finding someone who has Five Hand Reel albums and getting them to make a copy. I have no opinion about this as I have never received a penny in royalties for even the official copies of any of the Five Hand Reel recordings so in this instance it is highly unlikely that I would be complaining that those making illicit copies were stealing from the artists.
More recent addition to the above.
It seems that a compilation from the first 3 FHR albums has now been released but I have no idea how or from whom permission was obtained or where the money goes.
What I do know is that I still don't get paid any royalties from sales.
