Was the start of 100 bootlegs projesct and release of Milton Keynes (another LIVE recording) at pretty much the same date a coincidence...? Just wandering- got two possibilities:
1. They thought that ppl will love MK gig so much, they will download all the boots straight away (more live recordings, right?)- very cynical way

2. They thought that we'll really appreciate those bootlegs and we'll praise Greg and QP in general- so together with MK release that will make us change our minds about QP- very naive way

Now- isn't the output quite opposite...? Because 100 bootlegs started few days ahead and ppl generally slated the thing, they became really pissed off at QP (well, it IS a f**king rip off...) and therefore- were/are more critical at the arrival of "At The Bowl"? Didn't it backfire a little...?

PS
One more thing- I remeber Greg in his book bitching about the Rare Live- how terrible the thing is...Sorry, Greg, but 100 bootlegs project seems like even worse idea... If you were behind taht- I'm really worrying about those boxed sets...

It is absolutly not point 2.

I think point 1, QP only wants to make money.

It´s quite funny to see that the bootlegs that will be available at QOL, also be availeble here at Queenzone for FREE

Keep on going QZ.

I agree- that's absolutely great!!!! Shouldn't we inform everybody, on QOL for instance...;)

And in better quality, considering we have FLAC here.

As Bohardy would say, do we really need another topic to cover this?

Adam-
The point I was trying to make was that: was it right decision to put thoiose two projects so close...? Was it naive (thinking both are great and will be received with praise) or was it cynical... And didn't it backfire- the 100 boots stole the attention for quite a while and I was just asking- didn't it make you guys more critical about MK, seeing so many complaints about extras and almost everything else...? I haven't seen this covered anywhere else- maybe I've missed that... It wasn't just- "what do you think about 100 boots" or "what do you think about MK"... ANYWAY- the best way to show that the thread is crap is NOT TO REPLY and IGNORE-
you just couldn't do that, could you...
Also happy to see you dropped the hypocritical "Peace" line-

Peace,
Fenderek

Sorry for having an opinion. I dropped the Peace bit because I knew you'd jump on me about it. Can't believe I predicted that!
You can't have war without peace and vice versa. People have been going on about creating too many topics. Surprise, surprise, when I agree and chime in, I'm the one who takes the blame.

Peace,
Adam.

I'm sorry for opening a thread you didn't like... C'mon Adam- don't you have anything better to do...? Do I open that many threads at all, anyway...?

I explained WHY I started it- if the point doesn't make any sense, if it's unneccesarry- well, sorry, but...
...but as I said- ignore it, in two days it'll be on page three- will it make you any harm...? You already posted in it TWICE, keeping it on top of the page... You're the one who keeps oit alive- strange, for it is you who think it's pointless...

Just wondering....the whole 100 bootlegs project - how much is it down to having queen concerts available here at QZ?
