Thank You Seedhouse.Seedhouse said:I didn't think my earlier post was that bad, apologies to anyone who found it offensive.
I hear that Rodrigo happened to be in London when Brassed off was premiered and was very glad of the royalties. Kevin Bolton didn't get a penny, of course. Thinking of the amount of bands who have (illegally) photocopied his arrangement, he probably never got any sales either. Still, he got reputation (probably worth more).tewkeshorn said:Oh dear, about 5 years ago (cant be long after Brassed Off was out thinking about it) I actually played the Bolton version and the band even got it recorded onto tape and released it (eep!)
Very nice and I've still got a copy of a copy of a copy of a copy of a.......copy of the soloist part in Kevins very nice handwriting :lol:
I wonder how many copyright laws that broke...oh dear oh dear oh dear
From stuff that I've heard (and apologies to Mr Bolton if he reads this and thinks I'm speaking out of turn) there are, I believe, certain legal (i.e. copyright) reasons why it is extremely unlikely you'll find a set of parts for the 'flugel' arrangement. (Not my doing! Honest!) Cannot say any more than that.Borfeo said:Ok, where will I find an arrangement of this piece for flugel horn?
I've had a look on every website I can think of, and THE most famous flugel horn solo of all time isn't on ANY of them. Is there a conspiracy or something?
