The tragedy is that the recording industry wants to recreate the US

of our sound-recorded history will forever go unheard...the industry
won't reissue it, since it won't guarantee the mega-profits they
dimly recall (and want back again...?!) BUT, they won't allow anyone
else to reissue it for fear of "establishing a precedent"...!
Is Canada following down that same route :) Else maybe my secondary
idea of a postal "sneaker net" might be the least problematical way.
