"I wont spend my money on this compilation. Sorry. I am buying the
book, but I cant justify the Aerosmith business model of greatest hits
albums, that is, repackaging the same songs over and over again with
different artwork.

That's just my point of view,"

I say:

Well, I beg to differ.

It's NOT just YOUR point of view - I share it as well!

I couldn't have put it any better than you did - I was very disappointed
when I saw what was listed as on this 2-disc set - I had hoped we might
have got a "Crossroads 3" box set (following on the same ideas as the
previous 2), with something different to what has been around on
numerous other compilations. This certainly wasn't produced for the fans
- who already have all of these songs multiple times.

Perhaps we'll get a Crossroads 3 set which will be a 4-DVD set of his
career, or is that just wishful thinking? He was asking for video
contributions a while back wasn't he?
