Hi all, I have a question and thought this would be the place to go to find an understandable answer. My father in law is an old music fan (really really obscure early rock and roll) and came up with the idea of trying to put out a CD of his favorite tracks from back then. My question(s) is, how would he go about getting rights to put these songs onto a recording? I know he'd have to get master use rights to be able to put the original recording onto a new cd, but with the sge of these songs, I'm pretty sure that most of the writers are dead by now and even more of the labels that they were originally recorded on no longer exist. Thanks in advance for any and all assistance!
