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.

So today’s 5 is really a byproduct of the insane shuffle on my iPod. Hmmmm, iPod byproducts, I guess that’s better than meat byproducts. The Van Halen song came on the other day and with the impending VH tour coming up I just had to work it into a post somehow. Hence today’s acronymtastic spectacular.
Got a favorite acronym titled song ? Leave a comment and let me know what i missed.
