What's the Various Artist album?

VR said...

I hate to admit it, but the new Britney Spears is pretty good. I'd love to see what 33 1/3 has to say about it.

Wendy said...

Interesting how few repeaters there are so far... also, Happy Thanksgiving!

Dan said...

David said...

Dan - no, we didn't receive it. I try to acknowledge all proposals received within 48 hrs. Send again?

I bet the various artists is Nuggets

I'd love to read the ODB proposal. A book has to be written about that man/poet/criminal/drug addict/lover/child/ball of energy/innovator ASAP.

Nice to see Songs: Ohia on the list. Good choice.

Herb Alpert? I'd read that one!

I am approaching the album from a fictional standpoint. how long of a writing sample would you like to see? would you rather it be related to the proposal or a different piece entirely?

What Melvees album?!?!

Rev. MIke said...

If you mean Melvins, I submitted for Lysol. I don't know if anyone else submitted a Melvins album.

Against Me! is Reinventing Axl Rose would be nothing short of amazing.

I'm not the man for the job but I'd love to see Aphex Twin's Richard D. James.
