GH & Robin George: Sweet Revenge

  • hi

    as previous readers will know i am robins webmaster and friend, i have had a copy of the tracks (all 13) for a long time and glad that they can be appreciated by both robins and glenns fans.

    However it is an ILLEGAL release and i noticed from a copy a friend of mine downloaded from emule (yes i know that is not legal and do not condone it - nor do i condone illegal releases)that the inside cover states "Licenced from Robin" I can quite catagorically state this IS NOT LICENCED BY Robin, far from it, at the moment a lawyer is bieng consulted in regards to attempting to get the right royalties from this shadowy outfit

    that said it is good that the bad bootlegs that have been knocking around for eons can be dispensed with.

    in reply to the question as to whether it has been remixed, no these are the masters from the sessions Glenn did at Robins studio in wolverhampton and not the warner sessions which were done after this (these tracks essentially bieng demos albiet excellent ones).

    if anyone has anymore questions they can mail me @ webmaster@robingeorge.co.uk or post them to the sites guestbook fo robin to answer www.robingeorge.co.uk

    regards

  • Hmm... So Sweet Revenge is not a legit release :( That's unfortunate, and I hope things can be worked out to the satisfaction of Glenn and Robin.

    I picked up the CD last week and just posted a review in my blog - http://blog.myspace.com/damiendesimone

    Some of you may remember that I used to rave about this material in the early days of CTC, so I felt compelled to comment on it now, many years later...

    Thanks,

    Damien

  • Hello,
    Would anyone burn me a copy of the "Sweet Revenge" cd
    and the Jap. copy. I would be more than happy to send blanks
    and trade some stuff. Just e-mail mail if you can hook me up.
    Thanks,

    Best thing is to email his manager - you can find that over at his MySpace or Facebook pages.

  • Thanks for that i have now emailed Carl who i believe is Glenn's manager about releasing this illegal release as a legal download from robins site with the proper royalties bieng paid to both artists, if this happens we will also be able to release the remaining 3 tracks, i want, loving you and steal my heart.

    The aim of this two fold, one is to achieve proper royalties and the second one is to stop Krenscendo making money illegally off the artists back.

    I will keep the forum updated and will also post news as it becomes available on robins site www.robingeorge.co.uk

    regards

  • I am waiting for carl (glenns manager) to call me back as promised to talk about stopping krescendo making any money out of this illegal release, once he has called back we will have a better idea of whether glenn feels that us releasing the cd remastered with the missing three tracks with proper artwork and not the disgraceful artwork krescendo produced is the way to go.

    It is our preferred method as trying to sue someone in japan aint easy.

    it has always been robing intention that this should only be released with glenns permission, now that it is in the public domain we feel it should be done properly for the fans and so that both artists can get royalties.

    for those who like robins music he has just released the new damage control cd RAW on www.damagecontrolmusic.com as a download.

    for fans of both robin and glenn it is a good month for proper releases.

  • Hello Glenn's people,

    David, or anyone, what was the solution to this royalties problem back then in 2008? Kind of lost this the way up here. Were Glenn and Robin getting their things sorted out with this album?

    Greetings, escpecially for this year's Christmas season to all of you out there :)

    On this track I can hear Glenn play the bass!!!

    I decided to give the cd a try and put it into iTunes and my iPod. Gotta listen to it a bit :)
