A brief note about Mining the Audio Motherlode: The main focus here will be on
posts of rare and out-of-print recordings, but the blogs themselves are responsible
for the content they are providing.

A few helpful words about the downloads:
Follow the links provided to blog pages offering the downloads. Look for the
download link on the page. (Occasionally, the link is listed in the Comments
section. Also, if the original download link is no longer active, check further down
in the string of comments; a new download link may be posted there.)

Some downloads deposit a folder on your desktop; others leave an rar. file, which
needs to be opened using special
software. This software is FREE and available online. (If you use a Mac, I
highly recommend UnRarx.)

Some blogs provide passwords, which then must be entered when opening the rar. file.
The password is typically listed right next to the original download link.

Be sure to search the archived pages at each individual blogs to find more musical
gems. Also, check the blog rolls at each blog for leads to other great blogs.

Searching for a specific artist or album? Use Google's BlogSearch.


Thanks for all of this terrific stuff. Any tips re: /hearing the Vikey song? Link takes me to the site, but no success hearing or downloading. Any tips'll be appreciated.

To access the G.G. Vikey, click on the linked text "Rivièrafrique 231.335" and it will take you to a page with the link "Download this file." Click on that and it will DL the file onto your desktop.
