Copyright Issues and SGM Recordings

    We have recently become aware that some sellers (especially at flea-markets, as well as on some of the auction websites) are making and selling "bootleg" (read illegal) copies of SGM recordings from many groups.
We (the SGM groups) all know the products are illegal because either we, or our record companies, maintain sales records for products legitimately ordered by reputable resellers.

    The sellers offering the bootlegs have not bought any product from any of us, and in the case of  "in-house" recordings" (works released by the individual artists on private labels) there is no other place they can legally be bought. Some have even gone so far as to release earlier LPs on CD, using original LP Cover art. Often, these illegal, inferior copies are listed on E-Bay, Amazon & other sales websites. Please DO NOT purchase these!!!

    These products are of inferior quality, and they do not reproduce the original sound found on those recordings. Often, there are "scratch" noises as well. In the Inspirations' case, one of the current crop of illegal CDs is our fourth recording; 'What A Wonderful Time' released in 1967. This recording has never been legitimately available on CD.

    We know who some of the individuals responsible for these illegal
 products are, and many groups are now comparing notes on those we
 discover to be responsible. These crooks (and they are crooks!) are
 sophisticated enough to be approximating the actual covers, phony barcodes
 and even the printing on the CD discs. Modern computer duplication software
 and hardware make it almost child's play to do this type of reproduction, but
 it does not make it legal or ethical.

     Federal law prohibits copying of any copyrighted work, and the penalties
 are stiff. Copyrighted works include all intellectual property (a fancy term for
 recordings, videos, sheet music, songbooks, books, etc., that were not
 produced at least a  specific number of years ago. For example; there are a
 lot of early Blackwood Brothers, Statesmen, Speer Family, LeFevres, Oak
 Ridge Quartet, etc. recordings that are still copyright protected even though
 the actual groups are no longer traveling.

    To simplify the actual code, "If you don't own it, you may not copy it, even for uses that may seem noble
(" just helping out a friend", "just a few copies for our choir to sing", etc")

NOTE: Many, but not all, hymns in Church Hymnals may now be public domain, and if that is the case,
that info normally will be noted somewhere on the page. Public domain songs may be copied,
unless the work is an arrangement that is under copyright.

     Another often overlooked consideration is that if the groups are not receiving the benefit of their work, payrolls
 become more difficult to meet, songwriters get no deserved royalties, and the effect moves through each
 person/company involved. Please be aware of this when buying your favorite group/singer's music.

You can make a difference!

By ordering directly from the actual groups, you are helping them to continue traveling;
you will know for sure the recording is legitimate and of good quality,
and we all sincerely thank you for your understanding and support.


The Story of 'Will Jimmy Make It Home?' By the Songwriter, Frances Simpson

   A few years ago, at our church youth camp, it was not the normal whisper and giggle sounds that we heard during the evening service. Reverend Stanley Jones, from Branson, Missouri, was bringing a message about the life of the great evangelist, Reverend Billy Sunday.
    He told how Billy and his friend, whom we'll call 'Jimmy', played professional baseball. They often drank and partied together between games and walked wherever sin led them, until one day Billy Sunday gave his heart to the Lord. He began preaching the gospel, and he begged his friend, 'Jimmy', to do the same; but Jimmy was "too busy".
Jimmy said "I want to live for God someday, and I will when I'm older, but not now." Sadly, he continued to live out his life, but that day never came.
    After 'Jimmy' had become an old man, he became very ill, and was taken to a hospital; and as he lay in that room and remembered his old friend, Billy, he finally called for him to come and show him how to be saved.
    Billy rushed to the hospital, but as he hurried up the corridor toward 'Jimmy's' room, the Doctor pronounced 'Jimmy' dead.
    Brother Jones painted a vivid picture with his words of how the "Great Umpire of the Universe" leaned down over the plate and saw 'Jimmy' slide toward home. He called 'Jimmy' OUT!
    Jimmy was too late; he had waited too long. . .
    The teens in that camp service sat as quiet as a mouse, and when the invitation was given, the altar filled.
    I carried this scene home with me in my heart and knew that I must get this sermon into a song. As I sat at my piano, with tears streaming down my face, I anticipated the impact this story might have on lives being changed now. God wrote the song, and I have not been disappointed. Whether the song has been sung at youth camps, senior adult retreats, or Sunday church services, the response has always been the same. People listen and really hear the story, and hearts and lives are touched.
    I am delighted that The Inspirations are telling this story across the country, and I'm thrilled that both children and adults are realizing that truly "Today is the day of salvation."

Like the last line of the song says:
"Today your name is 'Jimmy'; will 'Jimmy' make it home?"
