If you really like an artist, you want the official product AND the
extra recordings made on the sly. If Jandek was financially savvy, he
would follow in Zappa's  footsteps and release the unauthorized
recordings as well, especially since they will be available in
lossless format.

But maybe he personally doesn't like the audience version; but he did
choose to play live and the current technological climate has actually
moved to video bootlegs for the more popular artists, so I think he
gets off easy if it is only an audio bootleg.

I think anyone on this list would be inclined to support Jandek, and
attending the show was a lot of support in itself, but I am one that
would argue that file sharing in any format can only help an artist on
the level of Jandek, but I know there are plenty of people that don't
believe exposure is more important than sales.
