I would tell fans that want to hear Taylor live, that Iit is fine to buy this album if they want. Two reasons, the guy that released owns the right to the music because he bought and paid for it. Two, do the folks saying not to buy this realize that EVERY Taylor album but Lover is owned by Big Machine??? I don’t think it would be a smart platform to tell people to stop buying Taylor’s albums.
I realize there are bad feelings and some emotions here but reality is that Big Machine owns the rights to all Taylor’s music, studio albums and all, prior to Lover. .......so there is no difference buying this than 1989, Red, Reputation, her other live albums, etc. if you enjoy the music, buy it and play it.
