A few days ago, a member of the 13th Floor Elevators contacted our Group and informed us you have not paid royalties to him or, to other artists involved in your re-releases.
In this, "Charly" and, Paul Drummond, I have a challenge for you: Take the profits from your quasi-legitimate re-releases and set up a fund to pay the artists a fair fee for their work!
Instead of heading over to the "Pub" to impress women with dubious claims of "Record Barron" or "Author", set aside funds to reimburse the members of the bands you have flagrantly exploited for your own capital and, personal gains.
In resurrecting the name "International Artists" and stamping "your" releases with this title, you have also resuscitated the legendary reputation for greed, manipulation and graft endured by these artists through your disdain for their creative process.
In short, you are abusive and, dishonorable.
But, you can change this... You can step up, pick up your pen and send these artists their just dues. After 40 plus years, they deserve more than your abject disrespect...
