I got the impression that Corwood no longer plans to release all live
shows.  There are what, 11 or 12 live albums released, out of around
60 live shows performed since 2004?

I don't think it would be that hard for Jandek to send an email to
Dimeadozen if he doesn't want recordings of his shows shared there.  I
seeded an Austin 2005 recording there before the official release and
heard whining from people on this list but not from Corwood.

I would torrent my Austin 2007 recording there, but I didn't like the
show itself.
