  1. You're a fucking idiot. You say that you don't follow Rosanne Cash so how the Hell do you know what she's doing. Go play with your YoYo.

  2. It's not that 'Volume 2' of Ray's gospel CD isn't going to be any good or it's going to have inferior songs compared to Volume 1. I'm assuming that the point of issuing the collection in 2 volumes is to split up the music and not have 24 songs on one entire project. He could've easily put all 24 songs on 1 CD or issued 2 CD's of 12 songs each and offered it in one package, but by splitting the project in 2 volumes it enables the possibility of riding the material for much more than 1 year.
