Arlo Guthrie's Official Taping Policy
"Arlo has often allowed recording by amateurs at venues when and where it is not forbidden or regulated or conflicts in any way with the usual way things are done. If you are unsure if a venue allows taping, contact the venue before the show. Sales of these recorded materials is forbidden and it is intended only for fans to trade and share. Fees to cover postage and/or cost of blank media are acceptable....
If you are creating cover art, please respect the rights of the artists/photographer and ask for their permission before using an image. Most will allow use as long as they are credited and/or for a copy of the show it is being used for."
I'm rather proud of this compilation I did back in 2007 (or so), as it continues being shared on several Bittorrent sites each Thanksgiving!
stewART created some tasteful artwork (included).
