Non-Music Disclaimer Post

Hello everyone,

In light of the recent news stories about how Prince is handling distribution of his music online, I would like to say once again that if anyone finds this website to be aiding in the distribution of music that should not be accessible, please send me a message or post about it, and I will be happy to remove any or all of the links found here. This blog is not financially detrimental to any artist or record company, because none of this is available for purchase, and I am gaining no profit or recognition from the posts, as there are no ads and my name is not associated with the site. I claim no ownership of any kind over the music presented here, and am only presenting a coherent exhibition of music that is available elsewhere on the internet. As stated above, if this is problematic, or offends any party responsible for this music, I will remove it as soon as I am notified.

    1. If Bob tells you to cut it out ...well cut it out! Till then, you're good!

  2. If I come across any Prince bootlegs I'll be sure to delete them all. Out of sight, out of mind. Goes for music too.

  3. You have a great blog. I gotta dig a little and find the context for some of these songs. Thanks and keep up the good work.

  4. Keep up the good work

    This stuff could be submitted for a PhD.

    Your heart is pure

  5. My guess is the Prince action, as alarming as it appears, has come after cease-and-desist orders. Of course, I could be wrong. But regardless, my sense is Dylan and his people know about the proliferation of these bootlegs, and if they haven't done anything to stop it by now, I suspect it's because they're ok with it to some degree.

    1. I suspect that you are correct on both points. It would really take some nerve to be personally asked by an artist/record company to cease and desist, and to disregard that notice. I think it goes without saying that publishing these records relies on a certain level of goodwill between the artist/company and the fans; hopefully that goodwill persists in our case.

  6. btw, Prince has apparently dropped his suit

  7. you might be living outside the law (a little) but you are honest!

  8. Thanks for all this great work. As to the law, Bob's got some very heavy lawyers but they never seem to worry about ROIOs, just piracy of officially released material. (And even then, I have a feeling that they expected the third disk of Tell Tale Signs to get shared, and also the 50th anniversary material, just not sold.) Tell the judge I said it was all right!
