VA - This is My Name and This is My Song (A Butterboy Compilation) CD1+CD2+CD3+ CD4 REPOST


VA - This is My Name and This is My Song (A Butterboy Compilation)
 CD1+CD2+CD3+ CD4     REPOST

What name did your parent(s) give you? We mostly all carry that name with pride all our lives but there are some who adopt a new name for professional or creative reasons. This compilation attempts to capture those many singer songwriters that have an entirely different stage name to their birth name. In some cases, these moniker shifts have made them became famous. There are even cases when a singer songwriter is addressed labeled as a mononym. In some cases, we don't even know their real names. To make this compilation more interesting I also included the following criteria to identify those artists. 
  • The artists must be a songwriter having written the chosen track.
  • The track chosen must be written by an artist as a sole writer, either for self or another person's i.e., cannot be co-written.
  • Tracks should be the artists first written song, either on an album or on a single, assuming a single precedes an album.
This compilation took some time to create as the criteria made it a little difficult to identify the artists first self-written song. (AIA if any errors). 

Here are 4 volumes of these artist who we may not know if we met and shared or first names.  CD4 is only by a mononym's artist. Enjoy.

    1. Thanks, mrRadio.
      The ballad of links with kinks.
      Some links are straight and simple. They take you where you want to go.
      But some links are twisted and tangled. They lead you to a place of woe.
      So be careful when you click on links.
      Some links are lovely, but some links have a kink.
      All Fixed now.
