Thread Name: Lyr Req: Roll to the River (Cindy Kallet)
Subject: RE: Roll to the River
Sandy, you need no redemption. Cindy is a fine singer/musician & songwriter. What she does with her music is her BUSINESS & livelyhood, which if like any other artist that we all love to see & hear, probably reaps very little, besides love, for their efforts . When perfomers ask not to tape their performance or "please don't replicate this recording, I need the money" they are asking for the moral & financial support that they are due for their labor. I agree with someone posting the words to someone's song but if for any reason they feel that, that person feels that the artist that created the song may disagree then that feeling should be respected & the artist's wishes should be parmount to one's wanting a copy. If there's a song to go into the DT, I know Dick & Susan beat the bushes trying to get permission before doing so. If there was money to be made if folk music we'd have more people giving up their day jobs to do what they love best, Instead of the few that decide to do what they & we love & give up what a more profitable profession would bring them. How often do we hear at parties or sessions or festivals some who about others say "they should be performing or cutting CD's". If they can't get paid do they eat our thanks. Support musicians you love. Barry
