Mitch Winehouse insists he won't release any more unheard recordings from Amy Winehouse as he doesn't feel it would be fair to her fans
Amy Winehouse's father doesn't want to "rip off" fans by releasing her unheard recordings.
Mitch Winehouse admitted he is in possession of vocals recorded by the singer - who died from alcohol poisoning in July 2011 - before her death but doesn't think it is fair on her loyal supporters to try and make money from them.
He told BBC News: "We're not about to put out new albums with different takes on 'Back To Black'. She probably did 15 different versions of 'Back To Black' but we wouldn't do that, it's not fair. We don't want to rip people off. There is no more new music."
Meanwhile, Mitch has urged those who opposed to erection of a life-sized statue in tribute to Amy, which was unveiled in Camden, north London, yesterday (14.09.14) to "fight" her fans to have it removed.
He said: "Let them come and take it down.
"They'll have to fight their way through millions of fans who do think it should be there."
The showbiz patriarch previously admitted he was "bursting with pride" over the statue.
He said: "I'm bursting with pride because Camden, along with other councils, won't allow a plaque or statue for at least 20 years after the person has passed away and they've allowed this straight away.
"So, it's a fantastic testimony to Amy, her love of Camden and Camden's love of her. It's wonderful. It's great to be a part of it."
