I’m sure they are probably all up there. They were all encoded from people that figured out how to download the realaudio files I had up on my old server so the quality is not very high but you can get a feel of the tunes.

I caught a little heat from this since the people that were doing it also were posting how to burn cd’s from this on the message boards. It probably would not have been so bad if the people that did this would have just kept quite and enjoyed them. Being a huge fan myself I can understand and appreciate why they wanted copies (even if the quality was poor) because I would probably have done the same thing. I have no doubts that the people that are downloading these tracks from Napster or anywhere else will be purchasing this album when it is release. The recent record breaking album sales in the wake of all the Napster/Mp3 controversy will back this up.

It is a great album (to put it lightly) and I, of course, will be buying this as well. Can’t wait to see J playing live again (with Mike Watt, how cool will that be!).
