Steve, what does the worldwide availability of a particular CD have to do with its legitimacy? Metal Mayhem, if these CD's are bootlegs (...and I have a hunch at least the Keel CD is...), are not the only re-issue label operating in the 'twilight zone'. I can think of 2 other labels that are releasing 'official' bootlegs, meaning that the label has the artist's consent and pays them 'royalties', but are doing it w/o the knowledge of/legal OK from the original label/owner of the master tapes. In most cases the original label is either out-of-business and the rights in limbo/dispute or they're a major who have better things to do than to litigate against a bedroom label like Metal Mayhem. Where do you think MM would get the money from to license the rights to 'The Right To Rock' from Gold Mountain/MCA or now Universal? Why would Ron Keel go to MM when he could probably gone with a real label like Spitfire? Why do you think TRTR wasn't re-issued a lot sooner? And now, all of a sudden, Metal Mayhem got the rights...? Hard to believe... If this was either one of the indie releases 'Lay Down The Law' or 'Keel Live' the legitimacy of these re-isses would be a lot more believable because indie deals are structured differently from major label contracts where the rights to an album almost NEVER revert back to the artist.
