A reader has sent me this request:
"As a kid my sister and I had many of Tom Glazer's records ("Music Ones and Twos", "Let's Sing Finger Plays" and a few others) but I have been unable to find any CDs by Tom Glazer for my twin daughters. I know he is dead now. But who owns the rights to his old recordings and are they available?"I really only knew Tom Glazer as the performer on three of the Singing Science records from the late 1950's/early 1960's. (If you are a They Might Be Giants fan, you must immediately click on the link above.)
I've ordered a couple of the disks off eBay, and got something which was, well, it didn't look like it was a fully authorized version. (Whether it did or did not pass intellectual property requirements I will leave to other, more qualified kids' music writers to determine.)
This guy may be able to help the reader, but how about you... any thoughts?
