Paying the piper, again

I have a question of ethics to all of you out there. I have a lot of
respect for the working Blues artist and I avoid bootlegging music.
However, a dear friend has been trying to find a CD version of an out
of print, 20 yr old album I have (that I won't let go of). I
contacted the band and they said they have no intentions of
re-releasing that album on CD so I connected my stereo to my
CD-recorder and made a copy for her.
Although to some it may be no big deal, I still feel like I owe the
band something. I was figuring on a round of drinks the next time
they came through town. What's fair?
Very refreshing to come across somebody with a highly refined code of
ethics! Have been on both sides of that coin....a round of drinks sounds
fair to me.... for your sake, tho, I hope it ain't a 32-piece orchestra...
