Bill, while I hear you on some of your points (and do note that they are
being heard), I can't let your last line slip.
I'd like you to quantify "half-arsed CDs".
There is nothing half-arsed about three compilation CDs of previously unreleased or hard-to-find material. They each represent patience, considerable expense and countless hours dealing with licensing and legal to be able to assemble each CD.
Like the Piano CD or not, it also represents great effort to accomplish and make real. It certainly wasn't recorded in a half-arsed way.
And the Alcatrazz CD? Well, you knew that was part of the package (as you did with the content of every CD to come in the box set.)
Let's not get overly dramatic...
