What About Spanks-a-Lot Records?

RECEIVED Thu., Nov. 20, 2003

I know there are tons of local labels making a huge impact on the world market ["Sheiks of Industry," Nov. 14 and 21], so it's understandable that after careful consideration you chose not to cover Spanks-a-Lot Records. While the music press in other cities attends our artists' shows and listens to their records more than once before reviewing them (crazy, I know). I understand that you local guys are too busy to pick up the phone to inquire about an artist-owned label with worldwide distribution, numerous radio hits, and an extensive back catalog. So I compiled some info for you. No need to thank me, I just want to help out.
