Would Ryan Adams be considered the same artist as Ryan Adams & The Cardinals?

Some playlist developments ride on that decision.

Screwtape or LMP, do you know enough to comment on inmyplace's question? I've never heard a single note of Ryan Adams's music.

Here's an illustration of how I would lay down the law with one band I know, though, Cliff Richard and The Shadows. The Shadows, by themselves, were a mostly instrumental group, and Cliff Richard by himself was a pop singer. In their early days in the late 50s, The Shadows acted as Cliff's backing band. I would permit someone to use both The Shadows and Cliff Richard And The Shadows, as The Shadows own career was distinct from their career supporting Cliff. However, Cliff's career both with and without The Shadows can be considered as one and I would not permit someone to have one song by Cliff Richard and another by Cliff Richard And The Shadows. In contrast, had Cliff Richard simply been brought in to sing some Shadows songs separately from his solo career, I would instead ban someone from using The Shadows and Cliff Richard And The Shadows, but be happy to allow Cliff Richard and Cliff Richard And The Shadows.

However, I have no idea how things apply to Ryan Adams and Ryan Adams And The Cardinals. Hopefully my description of how I'd lay the law down in another case helps. And keep rule #6 in mind.

Ryan Adams solo is a different story than his work with the Cardinals I believe.

Yeah, they count separately because of the "Shadows Rule"

More than likely.

With Gibsongirl talking concept compilation, you and liamcool pulling out artists most of Interference has never heard of, and my "odd" little playlist (which will probably get more "wtf's" than votes); our group should probably go first. I get the sense that our group will be a little out there so having us go first would give people a little more of a chance to examine them. Less people are going to know our artists compared to most everyone else. What do you think?

Hmm. I'm not sure if it should be first or last. First is when people are enthusiastic to get stuck into the contest, but last allows people more time to discover the artists in our compilations. Keep in mind that people will probably have to download more of our compilations than they will for most others.

This time around, I am also displaying my fondness for melodic rock, but there's still a good concentration of prog. I keep debating just how much prog I wish to use.

Maybe you shouldn't be doing a combined entry with Salome.

After all, hippy's spot in the tournament is now up for grabs.

I'll do that.

I wouldn't have done the combined entry if someone hadn't told me this involved making cds and posting them out before I read the thread.

I'm not actually pulling out artists Interference has never heard of. Axver is here for a reason.

I really like the name Desert Island Part Deux, not this roman numeral II business.
