EDIT: Those who feel inspired to contribute a song or to may. And if not, no one would have to.

The songs would deffinately have to be original to avoid any legal problems. I appreciate your counter-ideas. I was waitin for someone to start gettin technical so we could discuss the real reasons why this "couldnt be done".

I don't think we should just throw a buncha little recordings on a cd and try to sell it. I think we should try to put some good stuff on a CD... worth listenin to (and everyone participating would have to approve of the songs). Doesnt mean all the tracks have to be old. This CD could still be in the making as new material is always flowing through here. By that I mean that this CD wont be an instant thing, but could be put together over a period time so tracks arent just thrown together. And I realize that everyone is looking for instant results. But in reality theres usually no such thing unless you step into the illegal side of bread-winning, in which case I'd rally those closest to my home to go knock over a bank, haha.

Indeed, such a CD (or CDs) already exists, in (I can't remember how many) volumes.

The main problem is that, although you kindly offer to "whip up some of the album art... print out the album covers...", would you also undertake to be "the publisher"?

If all the "stuff... well worth the money..." includes any copyrighted material, someone (ie, "the publisher") would have to sort out the legalities and pay the royalties - and/or the resultant fines for IP theft.

And if all material is original... Oh how my heart sinks every time I hear phrases like, "This is one what I wrote myself...".

(On the other hand, perhaps 5% of materials so described is worth hearing twice, and if, as suggested, "everyone on this board would be more than willing", with 1451 registered members, there's the chance of a few decent tracks.

Good idea.

>So what's the point?

Sometimes I buy postcards made by disabled people of paintings painted with the mouth or with the foot.
The paintings and therefore the postcards are so ugly I don't want to send them to no one. I buy them and throw them away.
Don't you never buy a thing you can't or won't use.

Even a slide that lights up would be good.
