No such thing as a free lunch (or performing edition)

ExampleThe Hyperion versus Sawkins saga gets more bizarre. On Hyperion Records' web site there is an appeal for recording funds from Director Simon Perry. He says - "The label has received hundreds of letters and e-mails from people asking what they can do to support Hyperion Records in its time of need. Some have already donated sums of money and we are eternally indebted to those people for their generosity but we would like to make it easier for others also to show their support if they so wish."

The Hyperion online shop now allows CD purchasers to also make a donation to the appeal fund. Open this link for the full statement.

Shame somebody didn't bang together the heads of the two parties involved before it got to this ludicrous position.
