Music Archivist: Accomplished musicians typically leave behind countless songs and albums that were never released to the public. Often, the music was never released because the musician deemed the work of a quality not up to standard for public release at the time it was composed, and when asked if they’d like the music to be released after death, almost without exception the musician will answer “no”. However, the subsequent holders of the musician’s intellectual property frequently decide to release the music irrespective of the integrity of the work. Therefore, accomplished musicians should promptly destroy any music they decide not sufficient for public release.
Which one of the following statements, if true, most calls into question the music archivist’s suggestion?
A) Some subsequent holders of the music acknowledge that they’re ill equipped to determine whether the music is worthy to release.
B) Many songs or albums released after death would have been released anyhow had the musician lived long enough.
C) An accomplished musician’s self-assessment of unreleased work is typically unduly harsh and frequently revised later in life.
D) The most successful musicians understand that many of their memoirs, letters, and lyrics will be publicly released after death.
E) Sometimes well-known musicians were not well-known during their lifetimes, but attained that recognition after their work was released posthumously.
