  1. If you’ve got the originals, there’s no need for re-recordings. Total cash grab. He must not be making money on the vinyl and CD reissues.

    1. Actually, he has a new studio his wife bough him a few years ago. I know, I was the guy who consulted and set it up for him. he’s wanting to do what most creative do: a “better” version of a recording. And knowing him, he figured someone would want to get a copy. Simple as that.

  2. So what? Do you grudge him trying to make some easy cash? You don’t really have to buy it. The guy is a genius and he can do whatever he likes. He da man!
