I know exactly what gear you're referring to here! Aargh....

On the other hand, I never hold masters if I have a PO from EMI, Warner, Universal, Sony or BMG. Only one label has ever stiffed us by not honoring their PO, and it wasn't part of a major label back then (Zomba Records France).

If it's not a major label, it's payment up front. Period.
