While excited that ABB is releasing the Beacon shows on cd, I'm terribly disappointed at the price of the box set of all 15 shows. It is actually $65.00 more than if you bought each show separately. What kind of bargain is that??? Customer service told me that is the cost of the photos, extra cd, and box itself. I tried to explain that the photos, extra cd, and box should be the bonus/incentive for the customer to buy all 15 shows. What do others think??? To me, the price of the box set should equal the price of buying all 15 show individually - not cost an additional $65.00.

If you don't think it's a fair deal then don't buy it.

this deal has been explained.

The box is for the collector, not the masses.
The storage box aside (I'll assume its 1st rate)
The photos are ones taken by the Kirk West, some during rehearsal sessions with the various guest artists. 40, I believe hand selected by West.
And you get a Warren X-mas Jam that I believe is a highly sought after gig.

But again, this is not for the masses to buy, yet it supports an important arm to the ABB machine.

Im getting it because this is musical history. Im getting this because this is the 40th Aniversary of the Allman Brothers Band. Im getting this because I have always supported the Allman Brothers Band.

Is this Box Set worth the asking price? You dam Right it is.

Brother, its about fan loyalty. As a loyal fan, don't you think you deserve a little respect? Afterall, its the loyal fans who will purchase all 15 shows. Thus, the loyal fan should be rewarded with a discount on the price. I don't think its asking much to price the box set with the bonus material at the same price as buying each show individually. Afterall, its fan loyallty that's enabled ABB to carry on for 40 years.

I agree with you man......it would be nice if the price wasn't so steep, this would make it more reachable for so many more that want it. This in turn means HTN would sell more. Im still gonna buy it.

If you had read the 3 or 4 other posts about this subject, you'd know that the ABB has never offered IL's from the Beacon before due to very high Union Costs. That is something that is completely beyond the band's control.

Question: do you think any business has a right to make a profit? If not, say bye bye to MunckMix, future Archive Releases and all the other cool stuff that Joe, Vicky, Rob and John at HTN do for the ABB community. Again, if you had read Joe's post last week it was TEN YEARS before he got a paycheck after starting HTN.

Also, the fact that so many people have blatantly disregarded the "Do Not Copy" Instant Live rule means that they have been getting ripped off for years and must protect themselves in the future.

I'm not sure how long you have been hanging around this website - according to your profile, you just signed up and have a grand total of 5 posts, unless you have been posting under other handles. It really doesn't matter. But I have known the HTN guys for years and if there's ANYONE I would want to do business with and know I'm not getting ripped - off, it's them. The only reason I'm not buying it now is because I just got canned a week ago and money is tight - which is the same reaason I didn't make the Beacon this year.

Believe me, it was REALLY hard to read all those whining, nit - picking posts about Susan this, too many special guests that...anyone that was lucky enough to witness ANY of the shows this year saw history being made. Too bad a lot didn't appreciate it.

Some people are never satisfied.

Hate to burst anyone's bubble, but Marilyn Chamber's career relied on fan loyalty/support but she really didn't want to sleep with the guys in the audience. The ABB appreciate all us loyal fans, but they still price their tickets and merchandise at a level they believe will maximize their income, not at a level they think will make us happier. If the set doesn't sell well at $500 they will drop the price.

Sorry Virginia, there ain't no Santa Claus

But what if we're really, really, really really loyal? Then what?

For $500 dollars you can buy the boxed set. Too late to sleep with Marilyn
chambers, however, unless you're really kinky.

Best post I have read in the last month.

Thats why I don't post to forums much any more. I just use them as news sources and such. Too frustrating ...

Some say mean people suck, but at least I know what time it is with mean people. I say ignorant people suck.


Like coming down on Cy Young because he didn't pitch enough shutouts

I would equate higher cost than buying seperately as a questionable marketing call. The extra goodies should be the payoff for buying in bulk, along with maybe a 10% discount on the cost of all the discs. Make a little less money, sell more units woulda been my call.... win win.....

I probably shouldn't opinionate, because I would be the last one to buy such an extravagant collection, and honestly would listen to maybe only half anyway.....

I will order the 2 Clapton shows I was at if possible....

are these CDR?

Your thought is logical, and under normal profit scenarios I would agree, but there is not enough margin in the CDs to afford that. Sigh...

Well said.

I am working extra for the money to buy mine.

I've said this in another post which unfortunately was ignored by the masses. And though this doesn't totally apply to this situation, I will say it again: But I feel like people are really against paying for the art of music anymore. Extremely well paid Althletes and actors are making more money than our doctors and teachers, thrown in our face all over tv and the internet and magazines with lots of sponser support. But musicians aren't getting that support anymore. (with the exception of a select obvious group of them) And all people do is steal music from the internet for free and complain about the prices of MP3's, cd's & concert tickets.

While I agree some of it is steep... I also understand the situation of items like this. You have to realize. This isn't some major labeled manufactured product selling to the masses. This is small business. We are LUCKY to have this opportunity and that someone is taking the time to do it for us and make it available.

It is unfortunate that some of us can't afford it, but discounting it will only make sure that there aren't funds to pay the people who have made this music and this product and definitely not the funds to offer something like this again.

It's not as easy as people think. I mean it's that or everyone can go try to download an audience tape off the internet or trade 'em with friends...

You can always request copies of the shows from traders...

I received my copies of 'Week 2' (3-16 to 3-21) in FLAC format. I received these show by responding to a post a couple of weeks ago.

Anyone who would like a copy of these 5 shows that come on one DVD, send me your info and I'll be glad to get it out to you.

Normal B&P...
