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 Also, if the original download link is no longer active, check further down in the string of comments; a new download link may be posted there.)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 or try Captain Crawl.



i really wanna check out "soul funk". for the life of me i can't find a link except for the seperate song. if you've downloaded this, maybe you can help. reading the comments, someone else had a difficult time but then finally found it...




sorry, "soul rock"

lo-fi jr.

To find the Soul Rock link - Click on "this" in the line "Don't sleep on this one".

Thanks for sharing these Doug. I've been missing your show since changing jobs last year. The archives help, but I really used to look forward to hearing you live on Friday mornings. Now I can make my own playlist whenever I want.


So much great music. I'm getting the aural equivalent of Black Lung Disease. Thanks Doug


Based on teh fact that the label is based in Benin City, which is in Nigeria, and that the band name is in English, I think World Lucky of Okeke is actually Nigerian, not Beninois. Still a neat record, though.

By jove, I believe Joe (see comment, above) is correct. This appears to be user error on my part. I saw "Benin" on World Lucky of Okeke's record jacket and made a poor assumption. Thanks for the correction Joe. I have emended the entry above.
