The Asterisk imprint was formed to showcase LP and CD reissues by, as one guru put it, “high-quality acts so obscure that only friends and families remember them.” Apparently, we talked to different friends and family. And if our Asterisk project failed to move the needle on the unfortunate truth above, chalk it up to us housing nine albums in a typographer’s mark exurb, confusing the marketplace with LP-shaped CD sleeves, going full blasé re: formats, and rambling into out-and-out genre disarray. Confession time: We love every single thing on Asterisk.
