I've been linking to this site in my sidebar for a while now, but I mostly use it as a sort of encyclopedia: they have really good resources on all kinds of obscure stuff up my alley. But I got an email from Kid Charlemagne (along with steve simels and Backslider, one of my fave folks to kick around music with over at Eschaton) hipping me to this site.
There's a lot of great stuff here, and I assume its status as a French site means it's not subject to American copyright law.
Now everyone can hear my obscure faves The Starjets! And Emerson! There's three Nerves songs here: are they ones you already have? (Of course, Collins claimes one for The Beat, and Blondie covered one, but still...)
Also, Bedazzled continues to live up to its name: recent posts include live Cheap Trick from 1975 (Spike, the blogmaster, records with Bun E. Carlos and claims that's the source of this) and a nifty Dwight Twilley rarity. Hurrah for the internets!
I'm not really technically minded, but if someone can point me to a site explaining why we no longer have to download mp3s to listen to them, but then we don't get to keep them on our hard drives either, I'd appreciate it. That streaming thing interests me, because I think it might be a way to get around copyright violataion, and/or to share my mellifluous voice with the world.
