So, my band is in the prep stages for our first album. We have a setlist with 9 originals in it right now, and a couple more works in progress. A couple of those songs are definitely not album worthy so we've still got some writing to do. But I think a 9-10 track LP would be great for a premier effort. But I hear about how great bands often write 30-40 good songs in order to release 10 great tracks on an LP. The guys want to record and release our current material. It's good, but it ain't world-class. I want to suggest that we write more, get a couple sets ready for live gigging, and choose only the great songs for our LP. I feel like we could write, record, and release a great album by the end of this year. But everybody's used to local standards, where you write a few good songs and release them and get lauded in the paper. No band here has ever seriously tried to produce a great album. So I've gotta convince these guys to buck the habit and do the work to make something game-changing. And that involves convincing musicians to not record or save for interim EPs good songs. We're a hobbyist band in a lot of ways, but we're all in agreement that we want to be the most professional band in our city and blow the place up. That's been working in our favor so far. How do I make the case that we need to write a lot of good and great songs to record only 10 great ones?
