    Only fatalists would choose Jandek

    If you could suddenly inherit the entire back catalog of any artist or band, what would it be? I was thinking about this today, and I'm having a tough time deciding because there are a few factors to consider I suppose.

    Do I choose an artist that has ultra-rare, ultra-difficult-to-find albums?
    Do I choose an artist that has a prolific career simply to gain as many records as possible?
    Do I choose an artist that I've always heard about, but never heard?
    Do I choose an artist that has gone through many phases to get a satisfying variety?

    What would you choose?
