Another Crazy Idea!!!

Postby bruneau » Sun Feb 13, 2005 11:30 am

[updated:LAST EDITED ON Feb-13-05 AT 06:35 AM (EST)]Hi Everybody,


I just got an idea to raise some money for BRB.
If all the men/women who are playing the blues on this forum make a cd.
I mean one cd with numbers of your own or covers you play, kind of compilation album.
I don't know if it is technically possible but think about it.
I can make the cover.

Bruneau,
We've already done 2 CD's.
The whole operation is done with the help and input of members on the "Road"
Stumblin and Bluesmouse have been the "producers" on the CD projects other volunteers have done other things.
I believe "BRB. Vol II, part 2" is in the works.
-
I'll send or someone can send you Vol I and Vol II, part 1.
Anyone out there with easy mail access to Belgium and can send copies of Big Road CD's to Bruneau ?

Hi Boz,

I hope there's something of you on the cds.
I'm listening to Back to the Bunker right now, again.

I don't think the CD idea as a fund raiser is a viable idea due to possible copyright problems. It's OK when it's done internally and the price basically just covers the production costs, but if someone starts making money from one of these then we open up a whole new can of worms that I for one don't want to deal with.
Regards,

Bruneau,
Check your email inbox.
Also, search through some of our previous posts regarding the compilations and you'll realise why it's not for sale.
Anyhoo, while we're on the subject, consider this a general call for submissions...

Stumblin': I've been thinkin' about cookin' up a piano tune for ya'... it'll give the Doc sumpin' to give me crap about. I'd love to hear some more cross-country or international collaborations on tunes, like you guys did for Charlie, on his latest CD.
