Just this weekend I bought a high quality reissue LP of one my favorite
albums that I've never actually owned, "Behind the Magnolia Curtain" by Tav
Falco and the Panther Burns. And I assume that Tav will benefit by that
purchase in some way, though I am aware that Alex Chilton is no longer
around to collect his share. It occurs to me that there is a fair amount of
jingoism and "one size fits all" moralizing in this article, and that the
issue is not that simple. No one argues against compensation for musicians,
but reinventing history to prop up the major music industry is not the way
to go about it. I did write NPR in response, but my comments are still "in
moderation," and I guess they'll never appear.
