LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

R ecord labels are dead. At least that's the bottom line in an e-mail dialogue between two rock 'n' roll writers, Dave Marsh and Daniel Wolff, on the future of the music industry.

Jimmie Dale Gilmore has spent his 30-year career exploring an unexpected and novel musical juxtaposition: his music manages to be both evocative of rural America and positively ethereal.

The late Doug Sahm's many varied musical incarnations won't disappear into history, as a variety of labels have already released a slew of albums, and there are plenty more posthumous collections hitting the market.

Plus, Judith Edelman, Of Montreal, 311, Killah Priest, and more.
