But I think their time is short. The music industry is going to go under. I hope it's very soon.



I couldn't agree more..and THANK YOU for the downloads you've offered in the past. I've certainly enjoyed them.

What I don't understand is why the RIAA would get upset over offering downloads of music that you can't buy anymore anyway. They're not losing anything and neither is the artist.

Swanky,
I couldn't agree more. How are you impacting sales of a product that isn't naufactured anymore. I mean, look, I see the copyright side. But what about used records. I go to swap meets all the time and buy used records. Those are legit copies of the recording, but no royalties are being paid out. Its all BS. The industry is run by a bunch of luddites who fear technology instead of using it. These are the same old timers who feared audio cassettes when they were introduced. I'm sorry, I'm getting on my soap box. But the bottom line is, I'm sorry to hear about that and you're right!

Exactly. You don't pay Detroit every time you buy a used car. You don't pay the RIAA when you buy a used CD or a thrift store record.

They are likely uninterested in a CD that would only sell a few hundred copies. They won't make it.

There really needs to be a way to share out of print music. It has no impact on the corporation. If any impact, it would be positive. It raises interest in music only known to a few people with the records before. It might even lead to a use of the song in some medium that would generate income like a commercial or movie...

Exactly. The RIAA has some kind of deal worked out with net radio stations like Live365 (love your station by the way!). One solution would be to allow people offering out of print material on the net, to pay a small (and I mean small) royalty fee, put a RIAA approved logo on the site that says the downloads are OK, and leave it alone. That way, everybody's happy. Just an idea though.

Been quiet on this front, but now I am back! And better!

I am putting my shared LPs on my blog and will get in full gear very soon. All the actual shared music for download will be on rapidshare for legal reasons.

Nothing but vintage vinyl! In fact, my equipment has been broken for over a year. Much over a year. But this week everything is back and ready to be reassembled and start recording LP to digital again. The pile of records has grown a lot in that time. I will put up a share every week and hope to have something fresh off the computer this weekend. It's a lovely old school Hawaiian record I have been playing a lot for months now.

So, come check out the Swank Blather and I'll share my music once again.

Treeeemendous!!!

Welcome Back, Bra! Can't wait to hear what you've got to share. The Enoch Light record that you put up last week is a great (as is the Hukilau 2002 Video, as are the Menus, as are the amazing vintage slides, blah blah blah...)!

Keep up the excellent work!

Just put up one of my all time favorite records, Perez PRado and Rosemary Clooney's "A Touch of Tabasco."

There is a delay on new recordings. I got everything hooked up and found the problem I had before was still there. I am at a loss. I have had my receiver repaired and my equilizer repaired and bought new cables and tried everything. Still there is garbage coming through. I am going nuts! I'll figure it out soon though.

Not even getting that far. Radio, CD anything. I had the equilizer checked out, okay. I had the receiver checked out, okay. I bought new patch cables between the two and I still have the exact same problem. It sounds like the signal is way peeked and distorted. I'll have to dig back in there and try a few experiments to see just what the issue is. Maybe there is some sort of interference? I just am clueless at this point. But, we'll get it fixed. I have a lot of stuff to share in the mean time.
