Alas, perhaps the archive remembers such snuff, er, stuff.

Because neither have a relationship to music composition or performance.
Unless of course you think of Christina Aquilera as a musician instead of
just a voice-corrected-to-be-in-tune celebrity with an addiction to bleach.

of musicianship way back before vinyl was being pressed.
