if the Zappas really want to kill scum sucking bootleg profiteers.....financially<br>than they should make a section on the site offering the more profitable bootlegs to be downloaded. Presuming they don't want to master or rerelease the tapes themselves for profit. It would be cheaper of course and I'm sure if they didn't have the bootleg they could easily get a copy. The stuff is already out there, there's no stopping it why not divert funds from their pockets and satisfy the fans in desperate need for new releases. The downloadable Boots series alone would be a dream. <br>And if you really wanted to be cool, you'd try and release the entire show FZ banter and all.

[quote author=MentalTossFlycoon link=board=wishList;num=1038285622;start=0#5 date=12/02/02 at 04:12:57]....if Gail hired some engineer to mix those tapes, and then made them available on the web for 20 cents per song. A concert for maybe $5. No cover art; no marketing. Sure, there would be people pirating it, but imagine how many people would buy it.<br><br>I hate bootlegs. .....[/quote]20¢ a song??...it probably costs 20¢ or more per song to operate a website download service/paypal/webmasters/plus the credit card company whack on top of everything plus the engineer, u.m.r.k.facilities, pizza, etc....but, if the tapes were already mixed, compile a 60 minutes listening worth of tracks to download & you get to chose from all tracks/all concerts/all tapes...kinda like ordering a pizza  ;D because i'd pay way more for an hour of guitar solos than a complete concert, at least until i satisfy my jones for those, then i might just go back & get other tracks from the same concert.....i'd pay way more than 20¢, plus download cover art/notes etc & print it locally

[quote author=MentalTossFlycoon link=board=wishList;num=1038285622;start=0#7 date=05/04/03 at 00:45:09]....maybe 25 cents per song... but that's my final offer.[/quote] you're a tough negotiator....if 40,000 people pay; maybe 25¢ is the right number, but i don't think they'd get that many...anyway, if i pay $1/song on a cd, i'd go $2/song to pick & chose my favorites....that's $24 for 12 tracks of the same caliber as bognor regis

I hate mp3 and I hope FZ material would never be on the web, I would much either getting it released on record and you could go out and buy it, and listening to it on the stereo without burning half-decent mp3's onto a half-decent CD.
