Complaint Letter No. 50

Dear Mr Hole
First of all, I would like to congratulate you on your new role at Universal Music Group International.
I am sorry to mar your first month, but I was compelled to write after discovering a typo on my The Very Best of Michael Nyman: Film Music 1980-2001 CD (please see below) that I purchased last month.

The Very Best of Michael Nyman  The Very Best Of Michael Nyman

I appreciate that the CD was produced by Virgin Records, but my understanding is that Virgin Records is now owned by Universal Music Group International.
The music sounds like Michael Nyman all right, but how am I to be sure it is not by someone called Micheal Nyman posing as Mr Nyman himself?  Or perhaps it is like those fake designer handbags so lovingly copied, except for one small slip-up.  I note that the CD cover has the correct spelling.
I should think the real Michael Nyman would be appalled if he knew of this error.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Yours sincerely
Ingrid Stone
