Subject: RE: Stingy CD Reissues - why so few cuts?
Hi Sandy and friends,

Yes I am still alive and very busy, but I noticed your question as I was zipping through on my way out to save the world from Godless capitialism. ****Grinning like the mischievious Union Organizer that I am****

I am in accordance with the rest of us who are performers of one sort or another. I like more music, as long as it is valid and not filler, rather than less. But I think that is because of my being a musician. I am not sure that the average listener has the same interest level as we do. Unlike my other esteemed friends here, I have never looked at the amount of music as being linked to the cost, I just assumed that the labels were getting what the market would bear, and as time went on the price would come down. My feeling is that 48 minutes is fair, and that longer than that is a value. And I am sensitive to the marketing aspects for the musician. I wonder how my friends here would feel about the full 75 for $18.00 to $20.00?

All the best and I miss regular interaction with you all,

Big Mick Lane
