It seems that I always find out about tribute projects and compilation albums after they're recorded,completed and ready for release.Do you know if there is a web-site that I can reference that lists these projects while they are still in the early,conceptual and formative phases?I would like to be able to notify those who might be interested in participating in these undertakings.

I dunno about other labels, but with the two comps I put out, Oak Ash Thorn and Weirdlore, I didn't tell the world about them till they were ready for release. I imagine most labels take a similar approach - in my experience people running small labels tend to be quite opinionated about music and confident in their own musical taste... I had a pretty good idea who I wanted to invite to my albums and I wouldn't have wanted to try to manage a free-for-all where all and sundry were either trying to get involved or recommending their favourite artists.

The only exception that immediately springs to mind is Dark Brittania - I believe Cold Spring Records were touting for contributors. The other exception is the free CDs cover mounted on magazines, where contributors can buy their way on by way of self promotion.

I doubt there's a website listing such up and coming releases. It would require label owners getting round to notifying them, for a start off...

Is that true of all the folk related magazines like Folk Roots, Maverick, R2, Songlines etc. The Folk Roots web site says theres are entirely editorial choice, but doesn't mention that you have to pay.

The cover mounted CDs usually are compilations of existing recordings so they're note relevant here. Azoic asked about tribute albums to be recorded (and very likely in his round-about way about tributes to a certain very fine singer ;-)

Tracks on the FRoots cover mount CDs are chosen by the editor and no cash changes hands. They have now moved from CD to download.

The CDs that come with R2 (Rock 'n' Reel) are an example of the sort where artists buy their way on. Having said that, it's still a free CD of new music for the customers. Not sure about Sonlines and maverick. As Reinhard says, others (eg Mojo, Uncut) tend to recycle existing recordings...

Are we touting for a June Tabor tribute here by any chance? I'm still waiting for "June Tabor sings The Marble Index". Wouldn't that be good?
