As they're on "Rhino" records (but apparently "official" releases?) who actually owns the rights to the recordings/tapes? I ask 'cos I'd love "As An Am" and in particular "Young & Monde" to be cleaned up a bit if possible and re-released as I think this track is superb BUT my copy is of not the usual FZ live quality!

I would take the beat the boots later. I bought them once and also some of the boots I have are better than those and are more complete. My Notre Dame blows unmitigated Audacity away.<br><br>New boots please!<br><br>[quote author=Thing-Fish2003 link=board=albums;num=1056571564;start=0#1 date=06/25/03 at 15:35:53]Gail is trying to buy the rights from Rhino Records, and she may even release a new Beat The Boots box. I think that the Beat The Boots issues should be direct copies of the actual boots themselves, and not from the master tapes. But then, if Gail finds better-sounding masters for the titles from Beat The Boots Box 1, (Especially Freaks and Motherfuckers I would defiently approve. I don't know. Gail can re-issue bootlegs any damn way she fucking pleases. I will buy 'em anyway. Just for the music. (If Gail does re-issue the Boots with better-sounding masters, I hope she includes the full version of "My Guitar Wants To Kill Your Mama" from The Ark. (By the way, did you know that Rhino was in line to reissue the entire FZ catalog when they issued the two Beat the Boots boxes and The Yellow Shark? Rykodisc won the bid, I guess.)[/quote]<br>

Help all the rednecks and the flatfoot policemen on the terrible functions they all must perform. God help the winos, the junkies, and the weirdos and every poor soul who's adrift in the storm.
