oh, i've no problem with alt vers, outtakes, off album songs...c'mon, Big C..i luvs me sum Mac2, sum 'Yknow ma name' all sorts of oddities...heck, the more the merrier !!!
i just don't get having alot/all that really good stuff (song-wise) kept only
on high price megapaks...stuffed to the gills and priced like it, too..!!!
gimme a stripped down, just the songs vers...WITH ALL
THE SONGS... and don't charge me an arm 'n a leg for it: i bought all 'the cure' remasters at best buy with extra discs (more music !!) for about $20 ea...no frills, just musical chills...i don't want/need books, photos, vids...just music...and not
at sky high prices
i'm perfectly fine w/all y'all who got the extra dineros to blow on them fancy duded-up gargantuan packages: there's no size envy here, nosireedeebob !!
but, as i've said afore...if ya want just the songs and don't have a $100 just' lyin' around w/nothin' to do...you're kinda left out of all/most of the musical goodies, right ??
..and, as i've mentioned (argued w/laz) so oft in the past..i'm kinda-sorta fine w/the sound of my old cds...sure, as the aforementioned laz pointed out, they coulda 'n shoulda
been done better...that's not my point...i've already paid through the nose for lps, 8tracks, cassettes, cds...several different times...lotsa times
so, if i'm ever going to get all hepped over all this, i gotta point out that while it's mighty fine 'n peachy keen that there's a premium package level for those who want bells 'n whistles and smiley faces...there ought to be available an everyday-joe-i've already-bought-all-this-several-times-here's your reward-not overpriced version...
if i can walk into target, day-n-date and get a dave matthews band 2 cd/1 dvd for $10-15...or flogging molly...or chris botti...or taylor swift..
...i mean...i ought to be able to get the same for macca... i could keep going on about this, but i'd be banging my head against a wall of shame...
at the end of the end it's the start of a journey to a much better place and this wasn't bad so a much better place would have to be special...no need to be sad...
