SHARE: Trees - Unreleased songs and mixes

Postby Rubellan » Tue Apr 30, 2019 4:27 am

For those who have followed my label news, I recently announced a Trees archive CD in the works. Unfortunately, I shelved the project this past weekend due to interference from someone who should not have been involved to start with but wanted to assert 100% control even though I was doing all the work and paying for the entire thing. This project was originally in progress last year but I dropped it for similar reasons, though the artist contacted me recently and wanted to re-kindle the project. While I was open to it, the same interference became a bigger problem, so I guess you could say it was dropped due to “creative differences”. But since I spent countless unpaid hours restoring and remastering this material, I figure it shouldn’t go unheard, so here it is. Not all of these were going to be included but they were tracks that I remastered for possible inclusion. I’m only offering the package in MP3 320kbs, as I don’t want full wav files floating around out there. The link is only available for 7 days.

That's a pity Scott. I already was planning to send you an e-mail putting me on the pre-order list for the album.
But very kind to offer the stuff. Keep up the good work and hope to be able to order some new releases in the future.

Thank you very much Scott for all the work you have put into your label. I know how frustrating it is to know that there are not only morons inside the record companies (universal/sony) who don't appreciate all the time and effort that you invested. Hope that this year despite the ups and downs you can keep rescuing 80's lost gems and maybe someday, the Visage Dance MIx Album get a proper CD release.

Thanks again
Hit that perfect beat!

Thanks for these, and thanks of course for the Trees CD you were able to release, which is wonderful. Hopefully this 'bigger problem' goes away sometime so you can release this properly.

I wouldn't expect it in this lifetime. Because giving them 90% creative control on my dime just wasn't good enough.

Thanks very much for the downloads, Rubellan — and very sorry that your fine reissue label is also plagued by all kinds of weirdness. That's showbiz!

It's fine, I guess it's all part of the learning process. Aside from one project that's been pending for over a year, I have no intention of ever notifying or involving an artist of an upcoming release. They, or someone associated with them, always think they should have 100% creative control even if they aren't paying a dime or doing any of the work. There's rarely any gratitude, even if the music would have remained dormant without my interest. In fact, there are some possible upcoming reissues that I won't even announce until it's in production because I don't want the artist having a tantrum and causing possible issues before I have stock about to be released. So there may be some fairly spontaneous releases to come.

Good luck mate, I've been on the wrong end of people ruining a project and it's not fun.

Not surprising considering the person in question was a big label hotshot for CBS [worldwide video and merchandising] and used to having a certain degree of control of other peoples projects all of the time. Sighs. Let's just be thankful then, for the miracle that was "Sleep Convention" on RR. It could have met the same fate. You're wise to keep your nose clean, play by the rules, and keep a low profile going forward. In most cases that would be the thing to do. Notify the artist after it hits market as a courtesy; if then.

On the other hand, I was wondering now that the material in question is unleashed into the wild, won't it point back to you if/when it propagates and DC catches wind of it? Could be uncool.

The chances of that are easily slowed down by not putting it on youtube, soulseek and every two-bit forum on the internet.

Though this is some really interesting reading for NWO, comments on the internet get around; but it seems like you already know that. By posting these kind of comments, you are burning your bridges and industry people are going to be reluctant to deal with you. To be real, most of NWO already know that you can be a difficult person to deal with and most "kiss your ass", because we want the CD releases. We will just have to see how this drama plays out. To paraphrase the fable of the scorpion and the frog, I guess it's just your nature.

Don't you have a date with Barmy this evening?
