Sorry to hear this, Geno.  ASTOTC will always be a winner in my book.  You will too.  I'm so glad I was in on this from the beginning.  You always made us feel a part of the project.  LONG LIVE A SOULFUL TALE OF TWO CITIES and all those associated with the project!!Clap

This is worth reading from Patrick Adams' MySpace Blog...

Sunday, December 16, 2007 - Dear Kanye...

Dear Kanye,

You have my sincere condolences for your family loss. We are only blessed with one mother to nurture us and point us in the right direction. God bless her and give her all the rewards to be found in His grace.
You also have my condolences on your Grammy awards loss. When I look at the nominations I see that you have a genuine chance of winning three or four awards. I congratulate you on those wins. You are a brilliant creator who has put in a lot of time and energy. You have made a lasting mark on the music scene and deserve the awards you receive. A Grammy nomination is a great honor. Many artist including the Beatles never received nominations at the height of their careers, which brings me to my point.
   You come from a generation which demands instant gratification. You want to be seen and heard, admired and patted on the back right in the middle of act one of your three act play. Before you learn how to bake cakes with consistency you want to bite into it and enjoy a taste while it's still in the oven. Your dictionary came without the word patience. In today's world, graduation from college is just a prelude to higher levels of education. For the master players in the world there is Medical school or Law school followed by an internship or residency. I am still sitting here trying to understand the sense of any person under 30 years old doing a biographical movie. Unless of course he feels his life and career is over but that's another story.
    There is also a word humility which seems to escape young dogs. I learned a long time ago never to argue with success. No one can deny that there are a few self promoting flashy multimillionaires out there spitting and living the good life. However true success is measured by stability and longevity. When you produce your 20Th gold album or you write your 100Th song I will be the first to say you have proved yourself to be more that a loud mouth and a spoiled brat.
    If you win 8 Grammy awards I will be very happy for you but very sad for the music industry. In a world where there is a concentration of power because of limited ownership of media companies, a clean sweep of the Grammy Awards would be a sign of the worst kind of corruption. If I am right and you win 3 or 4 awards, You should be proud of your accomplishments, humbly accept the acknowledgment of your contemporaries and move on to bigger and better records. You are just a baby in the music business. You have a long way to go.
God bless you and I hope you can accept this letter for what it is. - The opinion of one man who has been there and wishes you lots of success in a long career.

A couple of questions I have always wanted to ask about this whole project


Who put this together?


More importantly


Why wasnt Memphis included?

It seems to me it should have been Detroit and Memphis instead of Philly, just my opinion.
Anybody else missing George Bush besides me?

Our member Phil Hurtt was the man behind the
Double C.D. Detroit and Philly had very strong
 connections with artists in the early to late sixties,
and seventies too. The artists in Detroit never had a lot of connections to artists in Memphis, nor the musicians.
  Hope this helps.... as to who , and why.
