If a recorddeal was involved things would change... budgets would change.

So from my perspective this probably would not work unless rates were really low.
If you give them time to accumulate similar orders(which at that rate you should)...if the engineer and musicians could schedule a full day out of it, knock out each song in 20 minutes it might be sustainable and worthwhile. More than a few musicians would still be tough, but it could work. No one would be getting rich, but it would no longer be a musical charity.
