Wait a minute! How can you say Paul gives value to fans for their money. This is the same guy who denied all of us a "Wings Box Set" - of oddities, rarities, and live stuff. We should have gotten a Five CD set or maybe more. But, for whatever reason, he didn't. Plus, how about a box set of the Paul solo years 1980-1989??? Hello?
While grateful for the new CD "Driving Rain", i would have worked on the Wings-span CD box set for nothing. Make any one of us - the curator!! And i'll have it out in a year!!
Instead, we got Wings-span CD which could have been made by any of us or done by any of us over the years on a compilation basis. The Wings-Span DVD and VHS was great but left me looking for more. Only 1 hour and 20 minutes (or 2 hours on DVD)...I would have added a lot more and a more balanced profile.
I look at a band like Phish as being "the total fan's wet-dream" or for that matter Pearl Jam. I think Paul is more of in the middle - surely, he has not given Fans (hard-core fans) what they need. Odds and Sods was supposed to come out years ago?? Even Back in the USA , the new CD - So, what? I got my sound-board from Washington, DC five months ago????
Look, i'm gonna love the new Film on ABC (Sans the commercials) and i'll buy the sound-board of the new CD....But, don't even start with Paul gives fans value. Look at what Phish does for their fans or even the kiss guys...
