so now i read this, after i've downloaded february's allotment...
seems like an interesting selection, will download next month...

emusic is not perfect, but i think it is great. it is easier for me to take a chance on emusic and try out something new for one thing, i'm not spending as much for it - and secondly, the limits on the selection actually helps in this regard - can't go to the old standby's - and so far, at least, i haven't run out of stuff i like to download...

Thanks very much for reading, and linking to, my posts on eMusic. Overall, I think it's a great thing, but like anything, it can certainly be improved.

Feel free to include me on your blogroll, incidentally. And if you want some interesting music to download for free, I give everything away on my music page.

I have little disagreement with your post or your list. As you say, you tried to be representative of a broad range of 70s recordings on eMusic.

I don't see the lack of availability of major labels as a detraction on eMusic. The majors have their own distribution channels. Perhaps there would be incremental business for eMusic if they could sell the majors, but that would reduce the visibility for such labels as Cryptogramophone, Pi, and others.

I've been an avid jazz fan since the late 60s /early 70s. Never have bought the argument that jazz died in the 80s (or 70s or whenever) and I have been thrilled that I can digitally obtain music I have on vinyl for much less than the cost of a new CD, and without the hassle of DRM.

FWIW, I've dl'd 7 of your 12 over the past couple of years.
