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.

AND HOW MANY LABELS TRIED TO REISSUE RIGHT TO ROCK? DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA? ON THE GRAND SCALE OF LIFE, THE MAIN THING THAT MADE RIGHT TO ROCK SO IN DEMAND WAS THE LACK OF SUPPLY. HUMAN NATURE DICTATES THAT WE ALL WANT WHAT IS HARD TO GET AND THE REST OF US DON'T HAVE.

TO A MAJOR LABEL, THE KEEL REISSUE DIDN'T MAKE SENSE. FOR A LABEL LIKE METAL MAYHEM OR SPITFIRE IT MAKES SENSE AND IS A GOOD INVESTMENT. THE AMOUNT OF UNITS NEEDED TO BE SOLD FOR A SMALLER LABEL TO MAKE SOMETHING PROFITABLE ARE IN A DIFFERENT UNIVERSE THAN THE MAJORS.

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.

YEAH.....SPITFIRE JUST HAS THEM WINNERS LIKE THE FIRST 2 COVERDALE. TALK ABOUT YOUR CRAP! AND SINCE WIN DO LARGE LABELS LIKE POLYGRAM TAKE CHANCES ON ARTIST IF THEY KNOW THEY ARE LOSERS? NOT EVEN FOR EX-EMPLOYEES AND FRIENDS!

3) 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!

AND EAGLE HAS ALL THESE MAJOR RELEASES RIGHT? THEY MUST BE PART OF WEA AND NOBODY TOLD ME?

4) 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...

IN THIS DAY AND AGE WHERE MC DONALDS GETS SUEED FOR HAVING HOT COFFEE AND PICKLES WITHOUT WARNINGS IT ISN'T A STRETCH TO SEE A LARGE LABEL MAKE AN EXAMPLE OUT OF A SMALL ONE IF THERE WAS A LEGAL REASON. LARGE LABELS AREN'T LIKE YOU AND I WHO HAVE TO HIRE A LAWYER WHEN NEEDED......THEY EMPLOY A BATERRY OF LAWYERS THAT SIT ON THEIR ASSES TILL A NEED ARRISES.

5) 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.

FAIR ENOUGH

6) I don't care for CD-R's and do not own any.

AGAIN, THAT'S YOUR PERSONAL CHOICE

7) Please try to grow up a little.

THAT WOULD BE MY CHOICE
