Keith Caulfield answers readers' questions about the Music to My Ears concerts tributing late Billboard editor in chief Timothy White, Tori Amos, and Pink.
Just wondering if there are any plans to release a Music to My Ears tribute CD to benefit Timothy White's family? I was at the Boston concert, it was incredibly moving and just a phenomenal show.
At present, there are no plans to release a CD of the two concerts held benefiting the education of the children of Billboard's late editor in chief Timothy White. Shows were staged in both Boston and New York and featured such artists as Don Henley, John Mellencamp, Brian Wilson, Sheryl Crow, and Billy Joel.
LOOKING FOR AMOS' GREATEST
With the upcoming Epic release of Tori Amos' "Scarlet's Walk," is there any indication of a greatest-hits release from her former label, Atlantic?
There has been no word on a greatest hits release from Tori Amos. That doesn't mean one isn't in the works though.
Amos just released "Scarlet's Walk" on Epic, her first set away from Atlantic. The disc will debut on The Billboard 200 chart in the Nov. 16-dated issue of the magazine.
The singer/songwriter's final Atlantic album, 2001's "StrangeLittleGirls," debuted at No. 4 on The Billboard 200 and has sold 364,000 copies in the U.S., according to Nielsen SoundScan.
PINK-ING THE HOT 100
I've noticed Pink's latest single, "Family Portrait," has not moved into Billboard's Hot 100. How is that single doing?
Last week, "Family Portrait" was at No. 4 on Billboard's Hot 100 Bubbling Under chart. It has a good shot of entering the Hot 100 this week. It is the fourth single from the "M!ssundaztood" album, following "Get The Party Started" (No. 4 on the Hot 100), "Don't Let Me Get Me" (No. 8), and "Just Like A Pill" (No. 8).
The Arista album has sold 3.7 million units in the U.S., according to Nielsen SoundScan.
