Well, first of all, I never dealt with Danny Best, but for me $50 for a
2CD-R set
is highly overprized and a totally rip off!

But this Rafael San Martin guy beats everything. Not only that he charges
$50 for a CD
(I'm not sure if it's a CD-R) with MP3 is ridicilous and a mega rip off.
But this CD contains
all the official released U2 recordings . Sure bootlegs are
illegal but nobody really cares about it. But selling piracy copies of
official recordings
is a totally illegal action and this guy is ripping off fans and stealing
money from the band.

Nobody should buy this CD!

I don't have problems with people who sell bootlegs on tapes, CD-R,
whatever and make some profit.
A good CD-R drive costs a lot of money $500 and more. And producing a CD-R
takes a lot of time,
much more than copying a tape.
But charging such amounts is not fair.
