The Concert for George COMPLETE
London, England - November 20, 2002 - 3BR 1102 - SB 6
Comments: Current status of the record labels. According to this past
Sunday L.A. Times, 1999 U.S. Revenue by album sales: $40 billion. 2003
revenue: $28 billion. The official release of the "Concert For George" on CD
proves that the enemy of the recording industry isn't tapers, traders, or file
sharing networks - the enemy of the recording industry is stupidity.
There is absolutely no reason for the official CD release to be incomplete. In a
fair and just world, the people responsible would be lined up against a wall and
shot - I'd settle for just a simple job termination with no severance package, but
given the state of the music industry, it might be good to make an example!
Thankfully, the fine folks at 3BR have more than made up for the shortcomings of the official CD release with this COMPLETE version. One would hope that someday, the suits will catch on and get the hint. Of course, it must be noted that the "Concert for George Complete" isn't really complete, it's only as 'complete' as the DVD release, which isn't complete! So in the interest of Truth in Advertising, this would better be known as "The Almost Completely Complete More Complete Than the Official Release But Not All The Way Completely Complete, Concert For George". Monty Python would be proud...
Wanna know what it's missing? Well, here's a hint...
