Recently, a band manager pointed out an article in Music Think Tank, noting the similarities to the underlying message of Recipe for Press. It was an editor's open frustration with mile-long pitches, emails not even addressed to him, and proposals that were bcc'd with the rest of the world (or even worse, a media blitz that discloses everybody's email address on the list).
The author wrote,
"These untargeted, long-winded marketing pieces are lazy, in some cases costly, and completely pointless. Stop sending them."
and then goes on to say.......
