I'm speechless. That's brilliant, amazing and yet something else for me to do while at work other than work. Thanks!!!

ABSOLUTELY PHENOMENAL SITE!!! Seriously, from one vinyl lover to another what you've set out to endeavor is nothing short of amazing. I have well over 700 Exotica, Hawaiian, Polynesian, Afro-Cuban, Latin etc... records and although I love lining up the needle and working the turn table manually, what you've got going is light years ahead and so incredibly convenient. I'll most definitely enjoy listening to the dozen or so albums you've got up there that I don't have and look forward to the posting of many more. What a treat!!! Much Thanks and Mele KalikiMaka!

P.S. Don't know if you've heard of the Gene Rains group but their Lotus Land lp as well as Ralp Font's Tabu album are definitely worth checking out. Next to Baxter's Caribbean Moonlight they're my absolute favorites. Thanks again for sharing such an amazing collection.

Thank You for the kind words!
That's incredible that you have over 700 LP's. Now that's a goal that I would like to reach one day. I have heard of both the Gene Rains Group & Ralp Font (Both are wonderful lp's. I hope someday to be able to find them and ad them to my collection. I know I could just go on Ebay and get them but to me, half the fun of collecting these old LP's is finding them at thrift stores and fle markets etc. I haven't paid more then $1.00 for each of my LP's and I'm trying to stick to that. I'm sure one day I'll start breaking down and buying the more collectible one's on Ebay. But for now I'm enjoying the $1.00 price tag.
Thanks again for checking out my site!
Mery Christmas!

I just checked it out on my Iphone using the cloud browse app and was able to listen to it with no skips.

Nice work! Yet another reminder why vinyl records MATTER so much more than simple CDs. I may never physically visit Hawaii, but those record sleeves (and not just the music) sure take me there!

***** I wanted to thank everyone for all of the wonderful positive comments and support for the work I did on my record player. *****
It has been brought to my attention that by hosting such a music player that allows the user to listen (stream) copyrighted music (especially full albums) is in violation of copyright laws and that I my be held liable. My intention was not to infringe on any copyrights to the artist on these wonderful albums. So, I decided to remove the record player just to be on the safe side. You can still enjoy the album artwork posted on the my pages. I will still continue to add new album artwork as I find these great treasures.
Thanks again,
Brian

Jeez, that was fast! I got the link from Otto, barely had time to get into it, and now BAM!
I wish there would be some inofficial way to may the record player work, after all the work you put into it!

I am still using it for my personal use. It's very convenient for me to listen to my lps this way. Maybe someday I'll be able to post it live again.

Not to be a lame-o, but as one of the "The Men" here, speaking for the other musicians on TC and elsewhere, I think you did the right thing taking the site down. If everybody enjoys the music this way, especially exotica which is not cheap to make (unless you go the synthesizer route which takes away the magic IMHO), there won't be any new music to enjoy because musicians won't be able to afford to make new records as everyone gets used to them being posted online for free. Piracy really does hurt, especially for indie acts (even with a few sales from TC, I am $1000s in the hole from producing the latest Esquivel big band CD ( http://orchestrotica.com/album ) and our May 2011 quartet album for Mr. Ho's Orchestrotica). Record sales will never come close to even allow us to break even on these costs, let alone profit from the making of these albums (and we expected that, but seeing this type of thing always hurts a bit).

You could probably get away with some short preview clips ala iTunes etc; and personally, regardless of law, it is one thing when an album is no longer available anywhere and all attempts to purchase it fail - in that case, I think there is an argument to be made for posting the record for download, but that's another discussion for drinks some time.

This is an old discussion of course!

My two cents,

Brian / Mr. Ho

I do want make it clear that I was not making this music available for downloading. It was being played via a flash interface that only allowed the user to listen to, not download, the music. I do agree with you "Piracy really does hurt"

Have you checked to see how many of these albums are available on iTunes or elsewhere?

Is it possible to shuffle the music and not play a full album?
