From my perspective you appear a little too sensitive to constructive criticism.

You are not being attacked, by me either.

I see nothing constructive about taunting and being a douche like that guy was.

But thanks for playing.

calling somebody a douche is actually against the rules.

I am not playing... I hoped to cool the situation, but apparently failed.

Carry on but be nice...

These are good advices:

I vote to just give it to them and tell em to credit you if they use it for anything beyond personal listening

I know how I would handle it; the way I handle most things...

There is value in connecting with others and the potential of it leading to something very minute or huge on a personal and/or professional level, with any timeframe, and at any point in one’s lifetime. Therefore, I have no problem doing some small first-time-only jobs I enjoy for free. Besides, I’m already doing it for my own enjoyment anyhow, and that alone is value.

I wouldn't walk into a supermarket and arrange the shelves and then ask to be paid for the work or tell the manager they couldn't arrange the shelves differently. No one asked you to put in the work up front. I don't think asking for money is the play here, and i know you're not trying to hear that answer, but if anyone pulled that with me it would leave a pretty bad taste in my mouth.

Then what’s the problem? Ask for some money or don’t . If you can convince them it’s the best thing since sliced bread ask for a lot.

If I haven’t been hired for a job I have no expectation of being paid for anything no matter how good it is.

From my perspective you appear a little too sensitive to constructive criticism.

Give it to them for free. Charging a price after the work is done and (it doesn't sound like) was ever talked about is starting off on the wrong foot.

i  would  charge them 5 bucks,  which means i should really just give it to them for free in order to enhance the chance of working with them again and thus, end up making more than a bootleg of cover tunes could ever reap.
If I can't fix it, I can fix it so nobody else can!

Do you have a figure in mind that you would be satisfied with?  you could say the work  required this much of your time to accomplish for the results with a value of......
or suggest if they like the recordings , you could arrange to record , either set up a session or wait til the next show to plan & arrange more closely what they would like, and say , if that isn't possible you could  " prepare  " the existing recordings for a small fee [  doing minimal if any work in addition to what you have done ]
