I'm trying to figure out which of the master tapes the band had lost, in the worst case it could be, Nothingface, Angel Rat and Outer Limits albums. I know this is old news.

UMG did received apparently $150 million from insurance claim. But they are still not certain which master has been lost...What a mess LOL

Here a link that I just found, if you find something else please post it here. I have written to UMG to find out more but I don't have much hope in an honest answer...does this sound familiar, how the music business...

A simple question deserve a simple answer, if tapes were not destroy in the fire, where are they then?

It is a so confusing, cause they only talk about master recording tapes. Which is normally the master tapes so just a stereo master, but what about the original multitracks tapes were those tapes also in the vault. I know for Nothingface Glen did make a duplicate of the digital multitracks tapes but where are those tapes now. Not easy to figure out when they can't even provide you with statements on the account.

Waiting answer from UMG still, but from an other source it seem that all is lost for the 3 albums and that include master tapes and multitrack tapes. That really is a bad news, no possibilities now to do any remixes ever. Poor Angel Rat, I always wanted to remix that one, to give it a proper sound, the sound that the recording deserve, but now game is over :-(

Inside job, don't think so, unless some crazy person did it, but imagine half a million songs lost, they apparently got 150 millions from Universal studio, but nothing for the artists, seem totally unfair. But also since VV always been in the red with MCA this mean we wouldn't get anything other then taking it off on the recouped. Anyway I'm still waiting for an answer. It's all very slow and complicated dealing with label. But I won't give up, basically every penny that is own to me, I wanted it, just a question of principle, I suppose. Some people will argue that I should just move on and forget about the pass. I understand and agree to a certain extend, life is life hey! But somethings can't be forgotten, I didn't expect in the 80's to get rich and famous with the band, perhaps other did and I respect that. Today it is a fight to the last man standing right! j/k....to the death! It is my rights after all. Like posting on this forum, anybody can and people should give their opinion. I do. Cheers Harry, miss you!

I used to have lots to say on the matter of "labels are..." but I would prefer to save my breath this time. Just keeping my fingers crossed that you succeed in getting things right.
Get over it, but at the same time, get things done. That's the 'tude, dude!

Fingers crossed that the proper tapes turn up ok! I would kill for LP reissues of these three albums!
