Sure, but I don't see how I can license a recording of one of my songs BY-SA
and not have the underlying composition be BY-SA as well, or if I could, I
don't see how it would make any practical difference.
You could make a derivative of the recording and end up with the
I do most of my cc thinking from a BY-SA perspective so I can't postulate as
to how this might play out with the other licenses...

I am pretty sure that tis is why artists will re-record a hit when they leave
a record company which still holds the rights to the masters... Is that the
all the best,
