    Anytime a major singer dies their record label rushes out a collection of previously unreleased material to capitalize on the artist’s death. We recently saw this with Michael Jackson, Amy Winehouse, and to a certain extent Whitney Houston. But the question is, do you feel there is any merit to these releases or is it just a scheme to make a quick buck off a tragedy? Discuss.

    I am on the fence on this because there are good examples and bad examples for each.
    Just to name a few of the good: Buddy Holly’s death in 1959 was followed by unreleased songs and they were awesome,  Janis Joplin’s “Pearl”  was killer, Xscape by Micahel Jackson
    Saying that for every good one there is some that feel like they didn’t need to be rleeased at all. For example, Joey Ramone’s solo album and “Michael” in 2010.

    I guess it all depends on the strnghth of the album/songs in my opinion.

    Honey, it’s just a scheme to make more money.  A part of me don’t blame these record labels.  Unfortunately, we live in a very money-hungry society.
