LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

T he Rolling Stones' "Satisfaction" and "Street Fightin' Man." Which is a classic and which is an anthem? Don't know? Don't care? New City Net's Mitch Myers will sort it all out for you.

Taking rock seriously as art requires the existence of a relevant artist or two who also treat the medium with respect. For instance, Trent Reznor and Tori Amos.

With the initial five CD re-releases in the "American Heritage" series, a step is made in the right direction to restore significant country albums through 20-bit digital remastering.

Also, on the set of a Godsmack video shoot, new documentaries about bluesmen, reggae from Nashville, and more.
