Spotify

It was Debra, lead singer with BUDVIVAR (on at the Chillingham tonight - be there), who introduced me to the incredible Spotify site. Since then, rarely a day has gone by when I haven't dipped into its almost infinite catalogue. On Sky News, today, they said that Spotify is forecast to challenge YouTube in popularity.
All styles are covered - there are 944 genré to choose from - and I've discovered lots of previously unobtainable or hard to get tracks. Often complete albums. Looking recently for an obscure blues I discovered 91 versions.
It's legal too. You can't download, but you don't need to as it only takes a couple of clicks to find what you're looking for either by title, artist, composer, shoe size...
Excuse me, I'm just going to check out Cannonball Adderley...
Lance.
PS: 505 Cannonball's - I'm going to have a late night!
