Jason Loveall is the fiddle player for the Siderunners and I bought his solo CD at the show. He verbally gave me permission to play his music in the podcast, but I absolutely love what he wrote on the back cover of the CD (which obviates the necessity for the permission anyway). I reproduce it in its entirety:
Thank your for your purchase! Show sales feed the musician. Live shows fuel our machine. Undermine the labels and freely distribute this to friends and the web. We the people shall decide what is good. Your help in informing others will increase show attendance and merchandising; chipping away at the stone of corporate mediocrity will create the new renaissance across all artistic borders and open the forum. Viva La Revolucion!
Right freaking on! Since Jason feels like this, he ought to formally give it a Creative Commons license. He may not know about it, but it would be perfect. He could then give even more granularity to his grant, specifying non-commercial or everything if he doesn’t care, etc. There is a phone number for booking on this disc, so I might call him and tell him about CC licenses. I’m trying to bridge the gap between the musicians and the nerds.
