Actually Joseph, I was being sarcastic about the dwnld "making up for it".. Of course it doesnt "make up for it"...a chintzy download is rather a slap in the face to us fans, IMHO!
And Ive never paid for dwnlds either. Actually I already have this TG Paris gig...a friend was kind enough to make me a CDR copy.
And its sad that TGs not releasing this 66 minute gig on a regular CD or LP, because it IS a pretty sweet gig!

I dunno if a download release "makes up for it." I've never payed for data
in my life, and I spend...pretty much my entire disposable income on music.
I like paying for physical, tangible releases. With data I'm paying for the
exact same thing that I can get for free off of SoulSeek...probably what
I'll be doing with this.
