I won't lie: I get files for free on internet. But my personal policy concerning music is plain simple: if I love what I'm listening to, I'll buy the retail copy. I know most people don't even care about the value of a composition and are interested only in acquiring the final product as easy as possible, no hassle involved. But it pays little tribute to the artist. I'm having issues trying to buy original, physical copies from my favorite artists and that includes Loreena McKennitt's masterpieces. In my country the stores are losing interest in keeping CDs and all that stuff and the high prices are outrageous. Only option that would remain is to import from another country. But here comes the plot-twist: if one of the highest taxes over imported products wasn't enough to block your interest in importing CD/DVDs/Vynil, here in Brazil we have to wait MONTHS to receive our packages. Bureaucracy's the word. If you're luck, you'll get your hands on your package after four months of wait. Postmail Agency doesn't care about your end of the bargain.
So, yes I do love to buy retail versions of my favorite artists, but it's not always that we, people who live outside USA or Canada or even first world countries, can enjoy the best of market can get. By the way, I still watch Nights from the Alhambra. I still love this show and it was hard for me to get a original copy at the time.
Knowing most of brazilian people don't know much of english language and paying attention to it, me and a friendhas created a transcription for the entire show, translating from the original to portuguese, of course. I still think this kind of feature is mostly underused in this type of technology. I know this show was recorded in high definition, but I can't understand why a bluray release was not available until then.
If there is any interest in trying this subtitles I've speak about, please, do not shy on asking for it. I was touched by the messages that Loreena keeps spreading to the whole world and would keep helping the way I can if it would be appreciated by someone else.
