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 Also, if the original download link is no longer active, check further down in the string of comments; a new download link may be posted there.)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


Again, some great finds.

I like thse:

Kurdish music-

And some nice post rock-

Am I missing something or is there no d/l on the Barney Wilen link?

Thanks for catching that link problem with the Barney Wilen. I ended up inserting a different blog posting (with active link) that turns out to have been the original poster of this gem. Whenever possible, I try to point to original posters.

Thanks for fixing it. Once I heard the mp3 you put up, I really wanted to have the whole thing.


The Robert Ward link here says "Blog: Pathway to Unknown Worlds" but the tinyurl gets me to a blog called "nightofthepurplemoon" which requires an invitation ... how do I get an invitation to that blog ??
