Apparently in Amerika you can have children out of wedlock. Can you believe iiit?!

I still have to read the news of them getting married. Even Wikipedia says she's his partner.

And yea he wants upfront money otherwise itís very easy to limit the pre-order to X amount of copies per person to discourage flippers. Usually 2 is the number. At least make them work for it.

Also there’s really only a wax shortage on certain goofy colors.

Otherwise there’s always an expected 2-3 month turn time.

Q-rates literally is a crowd-sourced vinyl plant.

At least use GZ/PIRATES PRESS if you’re gonna go cheap.

No stupid colors. Black vinyl.

By the time he figures out what to do he could have posted a pre-order and had the production of the vinyl in queue, produced, and shipped.

HE’S A LIAR

He might as well put the archives out on 8 track or betamax or laserdisc.

so wait for someone to rip i which will take maybe 2 days - he won't make money either way

unless he were to offer a bandcamp model where you pre-order the album through that but can opt to only buy the digital version for 8-15$ (billy would charge 15 not 8)

Why does billy have to reinvent the wheel? Neil youngís archive project looks concise and effective. Hell even Willie Nelson was selling digital copies of his shows. These weird preorder vinyl releases will result in resellers jacking up the price and end up isolating the fanbase even more so. Itís like heís trying to crash the aeroplane. And then you know heís gonna blame us for it not selling well.

Why can't Billy just release the archives digitally? I don't understand that at all. I don't have a vinyl player and don't want to get one. Releasing them digitally doesn't mean the vinyl won't sell, there will be plenty of fans who will want it.

Yeah, but I still think he would sell just as much of the vinyl while getting way more people listening overall. Let's hope this is a bluff.

There are at least 20 solid shows diverse enough to warrant a full release that could use a 'Dark Globe' style touch-up.

He could put out a small vinyl run and a digital download on bandcamp for $10 annually, maybe even every 6 months and he would make bank.

I assume he doesn't because he's still thinking in terms of the 90's industry where every release is a future tent pole.

Exactly. There's no tent pole artists anymore.

Bands which were huge like U2, Depeche Mode, Pearl Jam, now seem to have no problem accepting their albums won't be hits (well, maybe not U2), but they release it for the fans and to have some new material for the tour.

And they still sell live tickets.

He really needs a great manager.
