ZFT,
Why not use Bandcamp to sell the "remastered" catalog at a decent price? You upload 24/96khz files, PDF artwork, buyer gets to choose his favorite format (mp3 320, flac, etc) and you, the ZFT, get at least 85% of the revenue. Better control for you, easy to manage, and you can even add merch into it.

With a decent marketing campaign this could've been huge for you AND the fans.

Bandcamp give you 100% of the revenue, they do not take a commission themselves, i have my own music there, that's how i know.

You better check their recent policies. They do take a cut, as well as Paypal so in the end around 15-17% is taken i think. Which is better than iTunes which grabs 30% right off, without giving a lot of options to both user and content provider.

i just looked and its 15%, but that drops to 10% if you make $5'000 usd in sales a year, which they would very easily reach, i think it would be a worthwhile option for the remaining tittles which seem not to be part of the universal deal...

Why couldn't Gail hire someone to create the same thing on this site and keep almost all of the revenue?
