I'm gonna wait for the torrent.
I've downloaded a few torrents from time to time, so I can't be too holier-than-thou. But honestly, that's a fairly assholish comment to make here. Especially given the presence here of people who have actually labored on the compilation, and who have been pretty forthcoming about answering questions etc.
This is one I'll be paying for, because I want the CDs and the booklet, and because I want to contribute in a modest way to rewarding the people who made this happen. I've wanted this music for around 40 years, give or take, and I feel some amazement at living in a world where it will actually be available.
I guess it is inevitable that the stuff will eventually find its way onto torrents. If there winds up being only one CD pressing, and no presence on iTunes / Amazon mp3 store, then maybe that's even a good thing. People in 2020 should be able to get this content, somehow. But I hope it doesn't get there for a few years. I guarantee it won't get there from me.
(But it will be on my mp3 player within a couple days.)
