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!
