Cheech and Chong Album Masters Possibly Lost in Fire

The New York Times reported that a number of album masters were destroyed in the 2008 Universal Music Group fire.  They provided a short list of artists.

This new, more comprehensive list comes from multiple documents as part of "Project Phoenix," which was an effort by UMG to obtain replacement or duplicate copies of master recordings that were lost in the fire. This new list adds over seven-hundred new artists to the ones previously reported.

As far as we know, Universal never told the artists.

They haven't revealed which masters were actually destroyed, nor if they were really masters.

One of those artists is Cheech and Chong.
