Q: Why did you start this blog?
A: One of my hobbies is searching for songs that are rare, forgotten or remixed to add to my music collection. There have been songs that, for years or decades, I remembered and would love to have in my collection but couldn’t find or just never bought when I was a kid. Thanks to the internet, I have found many of these songs. Some of them, I have found or remembered and purchased simply because others had blogs similar to mine or uploaded the songs to sites such as YouTube and Imeem, and those people were willing to share. So many times I’ve been amazed at what I have found online and have been grateful to the people who made these songs available. I realized, looking at all the rare gems I have sitting on my iPod Touch and in iTunes, that I could easily do the same thing these people do.
Q: Why doesn’t your blog play full songs?
A: One of my goals is to have this blog exist for as long as possible. As someone who has both studied and witnessed the policing of the availability of music on the internet, I came to the conclusion that the best way to keep this blog from being shut down while still providing audio to rare music fans is to stream only short clips of songs. I regret that this is the case, but I hope to help fans find the songs they’re seeking regardless.
Q: I have been looking for this song everywhere/I would like to get a copy of this song. How can I get a copy?
A: Please try the following sites:
- Global Electronics Music Market (Gemm)
- Matts CD Singles
