THE MUSIC BIZ AS DO-GOODER
From the NY Times a few weeks back, here's the rare snapshot of music biz folks doing something good for a change. It involves the Oh Brother, Where Art Thou? soundtrack, a lot of money and a guy who recorded a song 40+ years ago while serving as a prisoner in Mississippi. They producers worked long and hard to track him down in order to hand him a check for $20,000 of unpaid royalities. Wow. Anybody need one of my songs for a flick?
