I think this is a viable concept. My concern would be the 
implementation. We would require at least one person to spend around 1 
month of their life on pulling all the tracks together, compiling the CD 
and releasing it. It would also require a whole process of quality 
control to be applied from start to finish.

If there is someone who can spare the time to direct the project I would 
be happy to assist them with anything that they couldn't do on their own.
