What I meant was that you should be able to buy the entire recording session via digital outlets.  That's to say, you can get all the album tracks, b-sides, etc for a set price.  Instead of buying Nas Untitled you buy the Nas Untitled Recording Sessions.  That way the artist can profit off all the leftovers they don't see how it fits on the album and they also satisify their artistic need to release a core set of songs as an album.

I've always been interested to see all the leftovers from an album and would love to acquire all of them.

Basically, unless it's for personal reasons, there's no point in keeping something locked up because it'll be released sooner or later (after you die).

nah im sayin why jus those stores and not more?




Most unreleased music, why not?

whats the reasonin behind this?




I think all artist at the end of their careers should do this. Imagion if someone opened the Dr. Dre vault, he could release "Lost Tapes" for decades and live off that.

With the way things are going, I agree with what someone said, keep you studio albums on iTunes and Amazon, release your "Lost Tapes" and "Greatest Hits" at Target and Best Buy.
Cool breeze; I'm hopping out of new Beams
My outfit ran me a few G's but none of that will matter if you leave
I used to be an Adam with two Eves and shawtys automatically do me
Excuse me, all that happened before you doesn't matter
I'm a vision of the future climbing the success ladder
Recline, in the mean time, twenty three shine, diamond bling blind as I rewind

^^^ That wouldn't be a smart business move though bro. He'd then have to pay the producers for all the beats he used for every track created for the album, wack or not. He'd have to pay sample clearances, pay lawyers to do that shit. And likely only a few die hard fans would want to cop every track, so his returns would be minimal.

I like the idea of an album, because it tests an artists ability to actually structure a group of songs cohesively. Anyone can make a few hot tracks and throw them together, but its rare you get an album these days that flows properly, and you can listen from start to finish.

I'm pretty much on the same boat but I can understand how the market has changed and artists need to cater to that.

I wasn't thinking about profit-motive but you're right it wouldn't be the best move unless you set a higher price.

I have mixed thoughts about album.  At once their incredibly dated and limited.  Then again I agree with your commentary.

I dunno.. It's becoming like all you buy is the song, which is good for artists who can't put out a strong album.  It gives you the chance to preview and buy only the songs you like..  It's like you don't release albums anymore, you release songs.  I'm fine with either outlet, because I listen to all my music on my ipod anyways, which can plug into most outlets (game console, vehicle).  And if it's a CD, I'll just rip that shit to the laptap and take it from there.  It is way cooler to have a case and cover to flaunt though.  Feels more authentic.  That is all nostalgia though.

As for the leftovers, the idea of offering them for free when you buy a WHOLE album off iTunes,Amazon,etc. sounds good to me.

I think I'm the only person who liked the original version of that song, only a snippet ever leaked...  Prod. by Reefa.
