THE MOBY EQUATION: The Art of Selling Out

Click this post's title and head over to the Washington Post to see if your favorite artist has "sold out" using the "Moby Equation".

I was going to do The Cult's "She Sells Sanctuary" but I can't remember what commercial I heard it in.

Damn you corporate America and your gobs of money!!! Stop helping musicians earn a living at the expense of their artistic integrity!!!

How Did I Not Hear About This Sooner...



The 40th Anniversary year of Pink Floyd ends with a typical flourish, the release of, Oh By The Way, a spectacular limited edition box set which contains, for the first time ever, the band’s 14 studio albums. These classic albums are presented in mini vinyl wallets with all the original extras also miniaturised. Floyd’s longtime design wizard, Storm Thorgerson, has designed a sumptuous box, as well as miniaturising the original sleeve artwork. Oh By The Way is released on EMI Records on 10 December (11 December in the US).

This unique box set is the first time in Pink Floyd’s incomparable history that all of their standard studio albums have been packaged together and made available as a set. In addition to the albums and their extras the set comes with a specially designed 40th Anniversary Storm Thorgersonposter featuring 40 Floyd images.

Oh By the Way contains:

  • THE PIPER AT THE GATES OF DAWN (Single wallet) August 1967
  • A SAUCERFUL OF SECRETS (Single wallet) July 1968
  • MORE (Single wallet) June 1969
  • UMMAGUMMA (Gatefold 2 discs) November 1969
  • ATOM HEART MOTHER (Gatefold) October 1970
  • MEDDLE (Gatefold) November 1971
  • OBSCURED BY CLOUDS (Single wallet rounded corners) June 1972
  • THE DARK SIDE OF THE MOON(Gatefold + 2 posters + 2 stickers) March 1973
  • WISH YOU WERE HERE (Single + liner + postcard + black shrinkwrap) September 1975
  • ANIMALS (Gatefold) February 1977
  • THE WALL (Gatefold 2 discs) December 1979
  • THE FINAL CUT (Single wallet) April 1983
  • A MOMENTARY LAPSE OF REASON (Gatefold) September 1987
  • DIVISION BELL (Gatefold) April 1994

Many of these 14 Pink Floyd albums regularly appear in the ‘Greatest’ lists of all time. They represent a body of artistic work which captured the imagination of fans across the globe.

Oh By The Way will be a must for the legion of Pink Floyd fans worldwide, who will note the careful reproduction of the original classic labels. The box set will no doubt be figuring high on the Christmas wish list of many of the new generation of Floyd fans, as the band’s musical legacy continues to exert a powerful appeal some 40 years after it played its first notes.

Now Me:

I just read about this yesterday and if I had the money I'd probably get it. I was such a HUGE Pink Floyd fan "back in the day"and this set is the mother load. I have only a handful of their albums anymore so this would get me back to full Pink Floyd power very quickly.

Who Is Tony Lindsay?

I received a comment about my Ultimate Santana review I did a while back from someone called Shaman and it said:

Shaman quoting me: "I've never heard of Tony Lindsay"
He is in the band since a while .... Do you really know Santana ???

Now Shaman, I freely admit to not being the biggest Santana fan in the world. I have only owned a few Santana albums in my lifetime and most of them were compilations of some sort. But I will say that my review was of the Ultimate Santana album specifically; a compilation filled with celebrity guest vocalists. I had not encountered Tony Lindsay's name before, and I would guess that most people outside of die hard Santana fans haven't either.

According to the Santana (band) page on Wikipedia, Tony Lindsay has been in the band on and off since 1991 and his bio on his own site says he's appeared on such Santana albums as Milagro, Shaman, Ceremony and Supernatural. It does state right on his main page that he is "The greatest lead singer of all time!", so perhaps I should not be so quick to judge; although after listening to "Interplanetary Party" again, my review still stands.

I do think it's safe to say that his contributions to the Santana albums since 1999 have been overshadowed by the numerous guest vocalists that appeared on tracks alongside him such as Rob Thomas, Michelle Branch, Chad Kroeger, Steven Tyler & Dave Matthews among others.

So there you go Shaman, I'm giving Tony Lindsay his due. However, I would imagine that since the Ultimate Santana CD is aimed more at casual fans who have heard these songs on the radio, there will be a good deal of people who will flip to the credits for "Interplanetary Party" and say "Tony who?"
