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 Also, if the original download link is no longer active, check further down in the string of comments; a new download link may be posted there.)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

TOO bad the Howling wolf album get an error when trying to DL

wow gold

Thanks for your helpful words on downloads, Doug. And I haven't used Captain Crawl before and it's fantastic! Thanks again. :)

The blog posting of the Howlin' Wolf record I originally linked to was quashed. A new blog with a working DL (Megaupload) has been inserted above.


sorry to hear about the layoff doug - thnx again for digital awesomeness


...capcrawl interface really nice btw - and a firefox searchbar plugin, mmmm!


Nice stuff as usual.

Here's my two cents

Kool Elektro Kraut

Best cover ever...calypso collection



The Charmer on the "Don't touch me Tomato" calypso collection is none other than Louis Farrakhan



Sorry to hear about your job troubles-- as you know you are climbing aboard a VERY crowded train! I appreciate you keeping up the good work (what else can we do???).
