Subject: RE: FSGW Getaway -- Tape Recordings
Kendall -

If the song or story I want to listen to ten times a day for the next five years because it's so great is on a tape or CD - sure, I'd prefer to buy the tape or CD. But there are all those pearls of wisdom (or maybe pearls of Kendall-ness) that appear spontaneously when you're introducing a song or responding to someone else's song, and it would be a shame if they were lost.

Also, I rather expect many people might sing songs they haven't recorded and will never record - some songs work best live, and others are songs that the singer likes and that fits in well with a workshop topic - but doesn't necessarily fit in well with the body of their work.

Within the constraints of my budget, if I like what someone does at a workshop, I'm likely to buy one (or more) of their CDs - but in my experience, the CDs aren't likely to have the song I fell in love with at the workshop.
