And what about 5.1 mixes? 
I loved Capricornia in 5.1.  Everytime I listen to Redneck I start to dream about it in 5.1.  Or how about Alas Fokloric in 5.1?  That would be special as well.

The last fan-made compilation I remember being mentioned on Powderworks was back in 1997, so it obviously never had any of the RW b-sides.  Since then, Powderworks has adopted a "no trades of copyrighted material, even if it's out of print" philosophy, so you'll only see bootlegs of gigs getting traded these days.  That said, perhaps someone will contact you off-list.
This brings up a glaring omission in the Oils catalogue:  Why the hell isn't there a commercially-available b-sides disk?  Even the 8-song promo "Best of the B-sides" from the 20,000 Watt RSL era is 50% live stuff.  Imagine a compilation of all the non-live, non-remix b-sides, with the cream of the live/remix library filling out the disk (or a second disk, most likely).  I would buy the hell out of that!  The material is already there, recorded and waiting.  There's no expectation of a tour or anything.  I can't imagine that it would be a money-losing proposition, even if sales are just to the devoted fans...
Oh, well... I can dream!

Hello Everyone,

Thank you for your time.
