What Would Jerry Do?
I'm of two minds when it comes to releasing studio outtakes and "rarities" by deceased performers. The music historian in me wants to hear it all -- especially if it's by an artist I've followed closely. More is better, right? We gain more insight about the artist, maybe hear some gems that would otherwise have been lost to the sands of time. But there's also that little voice in the back of my head that says, "There are reasons that XYZ didn't want to put this out. These are rejected pieces, discarded as I would toss out the first draft of an article I write, or an engineer would scrap a first pass at a mix." MORE
