Lyrics — from the single “Wall Between Us (demo, ’90)“ by Mike Shupp
Gave me your love
Now I'm findin' out what I'm made of
You took it away
Just take it far away from me
That's in the past
And I am reaching out now
Want to hear you laugh
But I can't see you at all
There's a wall between us
Break it down, I wanna break it down
There's a wall between us
And I don't need a wall anymore

Their new product, Posters, will (from their blog) “…enable artists to convert prints and flyers from tours, festivals, and more into NFTs that their fans can claim for free with their email address and build their digital collection.” Mint Songs uses the eco-friendly Polygon blockchain (a scaling solution for Ethereum) and offers $0 minting fees.
Collect “Right For You,” from my back catalog, today, on Mint Songs.
On Oct. 10th, 2016, DDEX announced the completion of the long-awaited Recording Information Notification standard (RIN), addressing the need to restore sound recording metadata (credits, liner notes, artwork) in the age of digital distribution..
Sound Credit Tracker by Soundways, is a DAW plug-in that implements the RIN standard and allows users to enter and track performer and recording credits as they happen. Using the DDEX standard, the plug-in stores the metadata in a small, .RIN XML file, to be included and passed along with the project session files.
Ten years in the making, the RIN format comprises an XML file that standardizes the metadata describing all aspects of a recording project and sound recording. RIN is designed for Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) manufacturers to enable their users to capture and store essential metadata in a standard form at the point of creation of a musical work and/or sound recording.
