This is bound to start a fight about mr. Freezer....he reads this forum - but please don't; it won't do any good
Very true, Erik. No fighting about the man from me, though- Freezer is actually a good guy, once you understand where HE'S coming from. It's amazing how many people are unwilling to do that, though. I'll defend the man to the death. He's probably one of the last great tapers from the 'classic' era still active in the scene- sure, he's got a lot of stuff we'll never hear, but, Jesus, enough of his stuff is out there already! Most of it NOT by his choice, by the way (people tend to forget that.) I probably have more "Freezer" recordings in my collection than any other taper, including Millard (and I prefer Freezer's sound). I think a lot of what he says about 'greedy' collectors is true- look at guys like Ralf Linden, for example.
(Now cue fourty posts about how Freezer's a bad guy, basically manifesting everything he's said over the years...)
The samples of his work on these discs sound fantastic, of course, but even the 'unknown gen' boots of his stuff are good enough for THIS collector, anyway!
