firstly, sorry if i mislead you with the title... The other day a mate of mine was telling me about how some old rock band his dad listens to (forget the name) offered their fans an 'exclusive' album (a couple of songs maybe), which he happened to get a hold of and its worth a fair bit today. Basically what happened was, the band had a bunch of material that they didn't want to release on a large scale, so they gave fans the opportunity to pay a set amount, and once the band received enough interest in the idea to make the whole thing wortwhile, they released a VERY limited edition record to a couple of hundred fans who each paid about $40 each iirc. The reason i mention this is because i wonder if a band such as Opeth, or any band really, would be interested in such an idea. I know that i'd be extremely interested in receiving a record of this nature, and there's definitely potential for the band to rack in some money, not that money is of much interest to opeth. if 2000 people agreed to pay $40 each, that'd be about $80,000 (net) for the band. Thoughts?
