I still maintain that this compilation of tracks is both the best and strangest compilation of tracks ever assembled (*)
(*) as far as "serious" compilations, and not the myriad of novelty or shitty "Now That's What I Call Music" or "Music for Year XX" compilations.
@craigmaloney had noticed that rcently already: archive.org is obviously hunted by thoe copyright sharks. Quote "This item is available with audio samples only" - i better go to YOutube, if i just want to listen. Still grat to surf archive.org when just looking for inspiration or completely lost music. https://archive.org/search.php?query=78rpm is one of those queries...
@jayrope I purposefully link to archive.org because a) samples, and b) if folks want to find the songs elsewhere they can (eg: Spotify, or what-have-you).
I don't want to give the RIAA et al once extra cent if I can avoid it.
@craigmaloney I like to give to creators directly, but yes, avoiding the music banks as much as possible myself.
