I think BAF pace is just about right. Less is more is my nowadays motto. And none is always better than too much.

I voted no for two reasons:

First (here I go again :wink: ), I'd say quality over quantity. The soundquality of both the McCook and the DEB has dissappointed me a lot, so I prefer them to pay more attention to that in the future even if that means less releases.

Secondly, too much B&F releases makes Steve Barrow too busy, which means less time for Microphonic and I'd love to see that label starting with a few releases a year too. :D

Any news on upcoming releases btw? The first Microphonic is now re-scheduled for feb. 2005, right?

I think that BAF can't increase the amount because the reissue market seems to be flooded by good CDs. The BAF success gave some idea and generate a tuff concurence so it not sure that releasing more CDs would generate more benefices to BAF.

Wouldn't there be a natural slowing of releases as, a) there is less top rate reissue material to discover, and b) there are more reissue labels doing exactly what B&F have done. I think the release schedule has been just about right but how can it sustain itself without compromising quality and/or sales?

there is still so much top material waiting for re-release.
ok, most good original albums may have been re-released,
but the best stuff was always released on 7" and 12".

so we need some real cool compilations of single a/b sides.

or still a rerelease of a dub album like "SHALOM DUB" with improved
sound quality and dynamic. this album is underrated.

what makes me cry that on many actual compilations the weakest
tracks are the longest and the best don't get their dub counterpart.

i vote for releasing reggae only in showcase style from now on.
a good track without a version makes you always feel that you miss
something. of course no fake remixes (only original dubs from back in the days)

Voted Yes because it'd be great to see more quality releases etc.

Obviously in the real world though things like economics and all get involved I wouldn't like to see them stretch themselves too much financially or not come with quality etc.

In principal the more reggae the better though!
