not that  I am against making mixes or compilations, it works for all the
other artists in the world
but please leave jandeks work like he intended it.
it took so long to shape it
please leave it the way it is
the whole of it is a genuine work of  folk art
the time it took, the lay out, the words the sounds leave them.
every Jandek record is a compilkation i think, this person
can make a record every day, every hour so what we hear is already some kind
of compilation.
take everything or take nothing.
