Oswald's original intention was to re-release Plunderphonic and 
related material from 1969 through 1996 with all clearances duly 
obtained. That would have put the price of this set a about US$100. 
It appears that he wasn't able to get all the clearances, and that is 
ostensibly the reason distribution is through Seeland.  The price has 
also been lowered to $33.00.  Interestingly, Amazon lists the set at 
$24.97 list price, with an original release date of April 3, 2001, 
but is taking pre-orders only.
