i dont dig this.
sometimes i guess its understandable if a band is releasing a live album during the peak of their career, for example obviously Alive! is full of overdubs and some of Alive 2 is even studio recorded! buuuut when it comes to archive stuff i wish bands/artists who are already hugely successful could just have some perspective and not fuck about.
cases in point:
1. neil young removed cinammon girl from the recent crazy horse live set because it was sung out of tune. it's been available on bootlegs for years and its missing from the official release!
2. the bowie reissue thats about to come out is edited. they were about to release it including stage banter and a bit where they fuck up a song at the start, but now its been changed to edit that out and make it more 'perfect'
grinds my gears.
