I'm sure a few of you are wondering where "In Dan's Garage..#21" went. Well it seems that I've violated a copyright, and the post was yanked. I don't necessarily have a problem with that. I mean,  rock stars are entitled to their royalties, and so are indie record companies that provide us with great music. I'm really not an "anti-establishment" type of guy, I just like to share what I've amassed with eager listeners. I really equate this with trading CD-Rs with pals, and since the vast majority of this stuff is so under the radar, I never thought I'd be "victimizing" an "artist" or record label. I have no issues with removing "offending content" from my blog. I just wish one of these assholes would inform me of who or what I was offending. THAT pisses me off. So until I get this figured out, #21 will have to be buried for the time being. Sorry.


  1. Hi Dan,

    I can share your feelings 100%. Here's the foreword to my side: "Given the rareness of the tracks, I don’t think anyone could forward complains like: “blogging is ruining the record-industry” (go out & try to find this music in the stores…)"

    Anyway, please don't get frustrated by some idiot's idiot interst (remember what happened to Gyro at Twilighttime?) and keep on posting the cool stuff!

    best whishes from a friend!

    You sir, have an awesome record collection.
    Thanks again for sharing.

  3. Just would like to know which band is coming this. And I'll never again will buy a record of them.
    People who follow amazing blogs like yours, we buy more music than we really can.

  6. Geez, I would have thought they would, at least, give you a chance to remove the post that got their panties wadded up. What douchebags! Love what you do so don't let them grind on ya.Best to ya, Mike

  7. I'm always puzzled how a 40 year old second hand record being shared amongst fans is depriving any musician of any kind of royalty...

    Hell. we'd all buy these records if we could find them, and pay top dollar too, so how is the artist(s) missing out on anything..its not as though theyre gonna get anything out of it...

    Keep up the good work , but be careful's one crazy world...

  8. It's not just artists' royalties, sometimes a post is pulled due to a complaint from the song publishers. However, quite a few of the garage singles were never published (even though a publisher is listed), or the band covers a published song but didn't register to pay royalties.

    In any event, Google will get worse because they have plans to begin a service that competes with iTunes. The days of music sharing on a Google blog are numbered.
