Once upon a time...

When record label execs lived like kings, they would throw lavish multi-million dollar parties, press 1000s of 12" singles on vinyl just to give away to DJs, hand out all types of branded product, sign any artist that had potential, but if those artists didn't or stopped selling, they would shelve them or drop them, and as these 'kings' may have believed that those artists were collecting dust, these artists never got old, and though they may not have made millions, their sound was always fresh, their songs were never played out, and unlike those label execs, the music of those artists lived forever in eternal greatness.
