... It's the record companies who are ripping off musicians by not keeping the stuff in print.

This is at NZ$ 1.00 being worth about US$ 0.72.

And no, those are not joke bids or anything like that. The two leading bidders at time of writing are a couple of serious record collectors, from both of whom I myself have bought records in the past.

Anyone from Warners (who now own Flying Nun) reading this? Instead of whinging about music pirates, how about you go and talk nicely to Stephen Cogle and Peter Stapleton and ask them if you can re-release their record?

... Damn, I'm good.

I suppose I should really have wished for world peace and less carbon dioxide, too, while I was at it...
