i'm at a coffee shop right now and forgot to bring my headphones, so i can't listen to any of these samples now... (maybe for new years)

but, was anybody else furious that the makers of that abysmal live action The Grinch oversaw 6pence's sublime version?

Haven't seen the film, but I'd have to say yes to that one. Given, the Sixpence song appeared on a rather obscure Christmas album. But Sixpence also had a few huge singles back in the day.

Linking directly to files hosted on my server? Bad form, dude.

I'm not trying to be a dick or anything, but come on--that's bandwidth theft. At least mention where you found all this stuff. I'm sure the other people you're linking to would appreciate it, too.

Tim,

Did you get permission from those artists to post those songs online?

 

Blogger Tim said ... (1/08/2006 02:51:00 PM) : 

Nice comeback.

As far as I know, the songs I've posted are in the public domain, but even if they weren't, it wouldn't justify stealing my bandwidth.

Regardless, the issue between us isn't permission so much as courtesy. Next time just link to my post. Or at least throw up some kind of "Thanks for hosting" shout-out.

In other news, because of your site I've discovered a Derek Webb album I wasn't aware of! Thanks! You should check out a guy named Andrew Osenga -- apparently he's replaced Derek in Caedmon's Call (I've never been a huge Caedmon's Call fan), but his solo records are very good.

Thanks. :) Fair enough. Sorry for not asking first. I've added a note telling that your site hosts some of those songs. I can also take them down if you'd like.

I liked Caedmon's Call back when Derek was in the band, but mostly for the songs that were Derek's. I haven't liked CC since. But I've been digging most of his solo stuff, although I tend to like it best when it's just him on acoustic guitar.
