Actually I meant the actual Intersound 4-CD box sets broken down as individual
CDs, and this was in $1 stores in the States, not up here. In Canada I have
indeed found my earliest Intersound CDs bootlegged by a crook named Tom
Baldock, who was the original Canadian distributor for the label and who
continues to peddle bad reproductions with ninth generation photocopies of the
booklets, and in at least one case having dropped half the tracks (I found this
in Honest Ed's). I have no hesitation in naming the bastard, but Intersound
refuses to do anything about it and the legal costs would far outweigh anything
I might get from suing him.
