Fw: bootleggers suck



Nicely said Brian.

Also, did anybody complain when EV released the new Belfast show.
NOOOOOOO!!!! How about the new Electric Magic SB Detroit 73, EV 
Feeling
Groovy with rare encores, EV First Attack of the Rising Sun new 
9-23-71
source, etc.  I could go on and on.

For the people who complain about bootleggers, I hope you don't have 
the
balls to sign up for any future trees that come from Japanese original
releases. REMEMBER, it comes from bootleggers. :)  Isn't new Belfast 
from EV
source being treed soon?? I hope I don't see your e-mail addresses in 
there
you hipocrits.
