I just read this on another board:

from Charlie Miller on BUDD:

"Rob called me yesterday to tell me about this. I am going to start a fund

drive for Betty...

Garcia Estate and Betty Cantor Jackson!

Good Afternoon all........... I've decided in protest of the treatment Betty

Cantor Jackson is receiving from Garcia's Estate that I would start

releasing the vast amount of Garcia Master tapes I have in my collection. I

spoke with the Estate's CEO last year and asked why they were NOT

compensating her for CD's they are releasing that she recorded? As an

engineer myself I find it irresponsible that with all the money generated

with each of these releases they are unwilling to take care of the people

who made it happen. When I spoke with Chris last fall he assured me they had

planed on sending her a check for each release they use of hers. As I later

found out from her they as insisting she was already paid because she was on

GD payroll at the time. She also paid for all the tape stock and reels from

her own pocket. This in my professional opinion this is a cop out on the

part of the Garcia Estate. She was not paid to make a "commercial" product

because if she was she would have been paid accordingly. To use the excuse

of "she was on payroll so we don't need to pay her now" is ludicrous. Now

they are releasing her recordings and using her name, it's only fair she be

compensated for such. I encourage all to write the estate's CEO Christopher

Sabec at cjsabec@jerrygarcia.com and voice outrage about this. In the

meantime I'm going to stop protecting and start releasing the Garcia Master'

s I have in my collection as my way of protesting the Garcia Estate's

continued abuse in this matter. With the help of Charlie Miller you will

start seeing perviously unreleased Garcia master's up for FREE trade. We are

also going to try to raise money for Betty as a thanks for all she has done

for our community. If the Garcia Estate won't take care of her maybe we can!

She is living a VERY modest lifestyle. Thanks for listening and all I ask in

return for releasing these shows is to help voice outrage and help Betty.

Peace to all!!!!

I am proud to announce a fundraiser for Betty Cantor-Jackson for all of the

hard work she has done. She never hot paid for ANY of the GD/JGB releases

made from her recordings. She is in need of cash to be able to live. Lets

help Betty out by thanking her for all of the Betty-boards we've enjoyed

over the years.

If you want to help, please send a Check or Money Order made out to "Betty

Cantor-Jackson". You can send the checks to me and I will give them to her

after I collect them all. Here is my address:

Charlie Miller

5663 Balboa Ave #183

San Diego, CA 92111

More from Charlie

Sorry for all of the mail, but you all need to know that this is NOT a tape

for money proposition!

Having been a homeless person for many years, I enjoy helping those in need.

Does anyone remember the Gans Dat Deck fund drive from last year? My first

computer CD burner came from a fund drive over in CDead. I'm just trying to

help a sister in need. The music that Rob is circulating is going out to

all, even if you don't donate. We're NOT selling the music. If TPTB want to

harass me for circulating THIS show, then they haven't been paying attention

the last 5 years"

Wow.

For once, Deborah Koons isnt mentioned.

indeed. i saw a bbc documentary on jerry called "you can't take it with you." she came of like such a black hearted bitch in it, always talking about "protecting the interests of the estate," and showing off all the stuff they're selling while railing on about million dollar annual sales.

then someone told me about her documentary called "the future of food" where dk does apparently a bang-up job of presenting information on biotech and the food system, so i'm very torn.

What is her stance on biotech?

What is her stance on biotech?

She's a bitch.

agreed...but a well-informed bitch. she's very up on the dark side of biotech and fully advocates organic farm practice.

on the flip side, she does seem to be quite the soul-less capatalist. all of her raving about "protecting the interests of the estate" and ensuring the survival of the estate (read - her) are very off-putting. back to the original point of this thread, good on folks for going around "the estate" and getting the music out there!
