This recent news article about a discarded cassette of recordings found by a collector make perfect sense if one realizes: Musicians usually have very little sense of how their work affects others. The products of their creativity are mere moments in time, left behind without a thought as they move on. It took someone rescuing the tape of music by Carola Baer from 1990 to get it properly released. Don’t trust musicians with their legacies. Let collectors, librarians, and archivists do their jobs.
