I was just thinking about some stuff and wondered how many of you have had a record deal. Has anyone here had their band picked up by a label? (if so what was it like) Does anybody really know how the commercial record business really works? I was wondering if there was a way to get a CD some national distribution without haveing to forsake my family for touring and marketing, etc. I know that those things are normally nessessary to have a successful product, but will a label distribute a CD without you having to sign your life away? I dunno, just curious. Any feed back would be greatly appreciated. Word to ya mutha!
