Errol Michael Henry explains how Atlantic Records breached their recording agreement with them and the significant losses he incurred whilst fighting to recover his music from them.

• Errol Michael Henry: despite recognising that standing firm to his principles could ruin him financially, refused to be ‘bought’ by Mr Kallman (or anyone else for that matter.
