When you compile these single composer episodes, do you consider it cheating to take cuts from tribute albums?

Tom Sutpen said...

No. As a practical matter, the only place you're going to find contemporary readings of these songs by Pop/Rock groups is on Tribute CDs. The only way it would be cheating, to me, is if I took an entire break from a single CD (which in truth would be laziness rather than cheating). I used, I think, five different Tribute albums for this one.

What's your view on the matter?
