The Grey Album
You may or may not have heard of DJ Dangermouse’s limited release CD entitled The Grey Album — a mix of acapella tracks by Jay-Z with songs, melodies and beats from The Beatles’ White Album. The problem is, Dangermouse never got the clearance to use either’s music for the CD.
In the meantime, Rolling Stone has called it one of the greatest remix albums of all time, although EMI is trying to get the CD taken out of stores, off the net, and off file-sharing services. Nonetheless, there’s a website serving it up for you, as a free download for a limited time.
You know, in case you care.
