Yet another interesting article from THE QUIETUS. CLICK HERE!
i love the Quietus!
I’ve been finding obscure LP’s
digitized for years….i’ve discovered so
many wonderful converted records on blogs
run by people who are passionate about
the music they listen to. Whether it’s an
actual MP3 download, or a link to
purchase from a small label, if it’s
good, i want it!
i love Amoeba Music, but i don’t think
this will make it any easier to
find good obscure music.
i like the hunt, and i like the
blogs that refine the search!!
As far as artists getting paid for
these old recordings, and speaking
from experience, we’re not holding
our breath, waiting for the next rent check
to come from record sales, and especially
not from anything that’s out of print!
Rob I’m with you, I love the hunt. I also lament the fact that great artists such as yourself often do not get your fair share of the pie, so to speak.
I have often heard from people who say they won’t download bootlegged music because the artists don’t receive anything. Then they go on to tell me about all the great finds at the local used record store and they seem oblivious to the fact that no musician has ever received anything from the sale of a used record.
That is a great point, Ron. It’s also weird to me that I can sell a used album, or CD to a used record store, legally, but God help me if I want to give away an MP3 that I purchased.
