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 Also, if the original download link is no longer active, check further down in the string of comments; a new download link may be posted there.)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


My latest find...

Amazing desert masters.

Don't miss it.


That Casanova soundtrack is wonderful, I was happy to find it in a thrift store. The opening track sounds very familiar, but I can't figure out where I heard it (DJ Shadow maybe?).
Listen to the sample from O VENEZIA, VENAGA, VENUSIA

Ian Zamboni

Hi, this is Ian from the Zamboni Soundtracks blog. Thanks for the mention, blog from my favorite radio station ever! Shout-out to all FOTs!

Tom Clarke

Just a quick note on the Romica Puceanu song: it's actually called 'Saraiman', though the album is called Cine Nu Stie ce-i Doru. Thanks very much for introducing me to this wonderful music: though it's from Romania, Saraiman really resonates with me, and English resident of Barcelona.

Doug Schulkind

Thanks for the correction, Tom. Sometimes the tracks are mislabled on the downloads. (Or, more likely, I screwed up.) Cheers.

Jay S

Hey! "Sululu Ya Moro" is a great song - thanks for putting it here. I listen to it all the time now!
