From the NY Daily News on December 11, 2012: "Tickets sales from the Sandy concert alone have already raised $35 million. More money will be contributed by sales of a 24-track live CD from the event, to be released by Columbia Records. Tracks are available for pre-order on iTunes at itunes.com/121212."
It figures that once the suits got involved questionable decisions were made. Perhaps this was an unintentional poor decision on the part of Sony/Columbia and the concert organizers, but I'd prefer not to buy an abridged version of the concert today only to find that a complete "deluxe" DVD or CD box set is released in the near future. (If a full concert CD/DVD set is released I will buy it immediately.)
In the meantime it is certainly appropriate to contribute directly to the Robin Hood Foundation and other Sandy relief efforts, but I have a hard time lining Sony/Columbia's pockets even indirectly with this poorly thought out release.
So no (almost) Nirvana, no My City in Ruins, no Born to Run or Livin' on a Prayer. I'm sad. It's a great album, but could have been truly awesome!
