Competition is good for the fans.
If one company sits back and waits, another is there to fill the want.
Or one company sits back and waits for another to release rare material and then rips it off.Ring any bells ?
Yes, that is the risk. THe Elvis fan has to be a saavy buyers these days. I don't have all the answers.
Bootleggers don't pay royalites. So, they are ripping off the estate and Sony.
But I still enjoy a good bootleg now and then.
They fill the void that Sony or FTD fails to deliver.
But in the long run, the fan has more choices.
Someone will get ripped off sometime, be it the fan or Sony or FTD.
Hey most of us on this forum have spent a ton of money over the decades on Elvis stuff that we buy over and over again.
So, I won't apologize for collecting black or gray market Elvis product.
Again, Ernst had the choice of sitting on this release or upgrading it.
MRS filled the void. I bought it and I am along with many others, am pleased with it.
Now if FTD can find 16mm footage of the show, and over dub it with the concert, I will buy it again.
