What the hell??
Are you working for Spitfire Records or do you just get paid by the moronic statements that come out of your head? If it is the latter, you must be a millionaire!!!!

Calm down, Billy, and take a deep breath.




Just what makes you think (if we were to assume for a moment that thought process was possible for you) that Spitfire is so much better than Metal Mayhem?

What are you - a comedian?





How many reissues does it take to make you feel a label is better or more legitimate than another? Using your moronic reasoning, why the hell would Yngwie Malmsteen go to Spitfire to reissue his material and not a "real label"?

1) Quantity has got nothing to do with anything but when small time operations like MM re-issue albums that were seemingly impossible to get the rights to - I usually have my doubts as to their legitimacy. 2) Spitfire IS a real label, albeit an indie. Yngwie's major label days are over. The only reason why he got that fluke deal with PolyGram for 'Facing The Animal' is because his then-manager used to be a higher up at the label and pulled a few strings. That's why he's on Spitfire now.





How is it Spitfire can come up with all this cash to have the rights and legal agreements and consents you think are needed from active labels like Polydor, Mercury and Atlantic Records....all of which are very much still in business? I suppose if Metal Mayhem had reissued all the Yngwie CD's you would still be slagging and bitching that they had no rights?

1) Spitfire happens to be part of UK-based Eagle Rock Entertainment who are LOADED - THAT's where the money for the licenses and all the lawyers comes from, my friend! 2) It's one thing to re-issue product of long-gone bands such as Obsession and Keel and another to re-issue Yngwie's catalog who is still active and would sue your ass in an instant. I'll take Ryan's word if he says his deals are legit, but if they were not and the artist, i.e. Keel, gave him his blessings - what are the chances that anyone at Universal is gonna care enough to go after MM and/or Ron Keel? Pretty slim, which is exactly why these bootlegs are indeed happening...





As to a CD being available in stores and thus making it legitimate it is simple logic. Do you think major chains are going to be caught up in even a possible lawsuit?

How hard do you think it is to fool a head buyer at Virgin or Sam Goody, people who generally know verylittle about music? Not very...






The only thing that pisses you off about Keel-The Right To Rock being legitimately issued in the states for the first time on CD is that you own an original Japan only release that now isn't worth what you paid. So you were too stupid to be content with a Cdr till the real deal became affordable. Am I supposed to cry for your ass?

1) I do not know any Keel CD's (but I have everything on vinyl), nor do I care to own any Keel CD's, and I certainly would've never paid $35.- for a Jap. import. 2) I don't care for CD-R's and do not own any. 3) Please try to grow up a little.
