Oh. Well that might explain the cheery programme about his life on BBC4 at the moment.

If the ad had mentioned him being a legend, or similar, it might have been different.

Do you not think the lyrics to 'Drove all night' are a bit creepy?

No barrier to record companies - look at the way every breath that Eva Cassidy ever uttered within 15 ft of a tape recorder seems to have set to an anodyne backing track and packaged up for the elevator market.  Buddy Holly was still releasing "new" material more than 5 years after his death and I suspect that once his various relatives have stopped squabbling among themselves over who gets the purple boas, there will be one or two tracks to come from the Nelson family vault.

And, of course, they have been issuing stuff by "Paul McCartney" since 1967...

If this new album is the one with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra its awful. Its got Roy's voice doing all the hits dubbed over a full orchestra pointlessly sawing away. The orchestra adds nothing to the original production at all.
I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that.
