Spotify would be the ideal place to host the famous ILM Rough Guides... if people are willing to put in the hard work (and if their catalogue is up to the job). The threads:

The Rough Guide to . . .
The Rough Guide Two...
The Rough Guide Part 3 (and general redux) - 15 tracks max or one CD only
A Rough Guide To ILM Touchstones

And I've just started a Prince album tracks one, but I've made it collaborative, so if anyone wants to add a load of stuff, particularly off all the more recent albums, which I don't know at all, go for it.

Prince LP Trax

I think this is what it could be really good for, collabortaive lists to accompany POX threads or whatever.

I've been re-reading Vahid's proto-kozmigroovers and Jaxon's jazz goes pop jazz goes disco threads and listening to all those records on Spotify.

Well let's just hope they stay afloat so this isn't all in vain. And that they add more obscuro '80s and '90s stuff to the catalogue or these will remain incomplete:

ILM Rough Guide to the Bo Diddley Beat
ILM Rough Guide to Vocoders etc

Helpful (perhaps obvious) hint: the no. of tracks returned in a search list is limited, you may get more if you click through to the artist. And you can search for/jump to tracks there just by typing the start of the name.

Really good. I've now become a Spotify subscriber - more out of a sense that I support what they're doing and hope they fully succeed, more than finding the adverts irritating.

Bob Six, Sunday, 15 March 2009 20:07 (ten years ago) link

yeah i'm subscribing too now. gotta support the good service.

having said that it's just stopped scrobbling for some reason...

Hard House SugBanton (blueski), Sunday, 15 March 2009 20:13 (ten years ago) link

As I moaned on the other thread: hasn't scrobbled properly for me (or a shitload of other Mac users) for two weeks now; despite a lengthy thread on Get Satisfaction in which a Spotify chap promised us they'd worked out what the problem was, we're still waiting on the upgrade. Given that it was an (unwanted/un-asked-for/forced-upon-us) upgrade that fucked it in the first place, I've kind of gone off it a bit.

Yeh, I know, wau wau wau, whining about a service that gives me free music, etc ... ach, see the other thread for my semi-feeble justification.

I've been trying to whittle down and fine tune this playlist of essential afro-pop, afro-beats and afro-dance for a while now and it still extends beyond 4hrs. Best listened to linearly, it dots about all over space, time and style, but I was concentrating on mood, a bit like if I was constructing a DJ mix. Some absolute bangers on here by the way - really love so much about it.

thanks Wm! so glad you enjoy it!!

Here's the link if anyone else is interested:

https://open.spotify.com/user/rideronthewheel/playlist/50RvDiL7lWXsxcJ6m177Pj

It's ambient in spirit but not necessarily in genre. Mostly instrumental and droney. It's meant to be listened to as background music, starting arbitrarily from any track. Right now it's 1,045 tracks (not sure whether that includes all the tracks that have been made unavailable in this country since I added them) and about 109.5 hours long, but I'm going to keep adding to it.

(•̪●) (carne asada), Wednesday, 14 November 2018 20:47 (one year ago) link

Neat, I should check those out. 1988 120 Minutes had a particularly huge impact on my musical tastes. Just scrolling through that list I can remember the specific episodes I taped on VHS and watched over and over.

Mario Meatwagon (Moodles), Wednesday, 14 November 2018 22:24 (one year ago) link

The first playlist I made when I signed up for Spotify was the result of a brain dump of all of the 120 Minutes music I could think of. Did not even come close to the amount of music on these. Thanks for sharing.

I made a small one recently of all of the songs covered by Replicants on their 1996 self-titled release.

beard papa, Thursday, 15 November 2018 00:50 (one year ago) link

Here's what have turned out to be my most popular Spotify playlists.
This is an wide-ranging introduction to Greek music with lots of rebetiko, epirotika, nisiotika and demotika.
Here are 8 hours of songs cut at American Studios in Memphis, TN between 66 - 73, mostly with either Chips Moman or Tommy Cogbill behind the board. Lots of southern soul, Dusty, Box Tops, Elvis....
Here are two and a half days worth of Soul Music tracks from the early 70s.
