The birth of another Collector's Item!

I wonder what FatCat's going to do with the recalled records. They should
just relabel them as being by "Not Pole" or something. (Might even be able
to recoup their losses that way.)

Too bad the e-mail was fake; if the impostor's music is good enough someone
could put out a record by them.
