Artists and record labels have always maintained a somewhat tentative alliance. Here’s five on that relationship today from the artist’s point of view and a bonus sixth track from the other point of view, Joni Mitchell‘s tribute to David Geffen, Free Man In Paris.
All kind of inspired today by the release of Nick Lowe‘s rare track, I Love My Label which will be a bonus track on the upcoming 30th anniversary edition of the classic Jesus of Cool.
