vigotone sentencing

Fri Jun 13, 2003 6:48 am

i found this on the beatlefan news site:

Guy Mouledoux, the man authorities say was behind the legendary, much-missed Vigotone label, has been sentenced to eight months confinement — four months in a halfway house and four months of home confinement — and a $3,000 fine in federal court in New Orleans, the Times-Picayune reports. Mouledoux, 42, also had to forfeit almost $205,000 in profits that he had stashed in a Swiss bank account, all of his blank CDs and a variety of electronic equipment. He agreed to pay $51,322 in restitution to the RIAA . . .

i got to say that the vigotone label really put out some nice items, including at least one elvis package.

too bad, emi or bmg doesn't put him on their payrole.

Although Guy certainly knew what he was doing, the VigOtone label created some of the finest rock CD releases of the 1990s. He was a deep fan, with efforts that exceeded most major labels.

Among my favorites were the stunning Buddy Holly box from 1995 and the superb Beatles Thirty Days 17 CD (!) set issued in 2000.

As Dr Carpenter said, the Holly and Beatles sets are fantastic. Seek them out if you can find them. Great artists who should be heard.
