I can open the playlists ok in IE7 but when I try to open them in Firefox I get 'Invalid option:spotify:user:.....', any ideas, google isn't my friend when it comes to this.

I find the most reliable method is to copy the links and paste them in the spotify search box and hit return.

Are you UK? If so go here, no invite needed:

This works perfectly for me now. Wonderful! Am too busy weeping (once again) at the eternal fucking shitness of Microsoft Excel to explore it much further, mind. Hurrah, though.

I added that ghost cauldron track : D

who put up the letta mbulu? was really feeling that earlier

cozwn, Sunday, 25 January 2009 17:50 (nine years ago) Permalink

Letta Mbulu was one of mine.

It's odd and a fucking pain how Spotify often doesn't specify that tracks are remixes in any way.

this is starting to piss me off too. on the pazz & jop playlist above for instance the gaslight anthem track is an acoustic version and pink's so what is some hi-nrg dance remix. don't think the compiler intended it that way. i keep coming across stuff in live versions (biz markie's just a friend) or sixties tracks that sound that they were rerecorded by one or more of their original members somewhere in the eighties (the bobby fuller four's i fought the law).

How can you add to it?

I've corrected the Pink. There's no other version of the Gaslight Anthem track, though...

mike t-diva, Sunday, 25 January 2009 23:24 (nine years ago) Permalink

This is amazing. AMAZING. Although I will now only be buying records that aren't on it, so business-model-wise maybe not the best idea.

I can see the playlists - how would one add to one if one wanted too?

Jamie T Smith, Monday, 26 January 2009 12:36 (nine years ago) Permalink

If it's a collaborative playlist (like the ILX one above) just drag and drop the track onto it.

Glansel & Gretel (Raw Patrick), Monday, 26 January 2009 12:55 (nine years ago) Permalink

loving this. wishing it included videos and more better data tho.

Bondzilla vs Mechaholmes (blueski), Monday, 26 January 2009 13:22 (nine years ago) Permalink

would be cool if you could see who added what to playlists too, and maybe a SUGGEST BAN system...

Bondzilla vs Mechaholmes (blueski), Monday, 26 January 2009 13:30 (nine years ago) Permalink

Top of my wishlist: a recommendation engine; social networking features.

I quite like being able to add stuff anonymously to the ILX playlist. It removes the pressure to impress.

mike t-diva, Monday, 26 January 2009 13:34 (nine years ago) Permalink

Two adverts in one album so far, and both for something called the Energy Saving Trust, so can't complain, really. I like that there is a little graphic showing you how much of the ad is left, so you could mute the ads quite easily.

Jamie T Smith, Monday, 26 January 2009 13:43 (nine years ago) Permalink

Some sort of friends list where you can access all their playlists (or ones they choose to share) seems like a no-brainer for them to add. And that's just for starters.

Glansel & Gretel (Raw Patrick), Monday, 26 January 2009 13:44 (nine years ago) Permalink

If, like me, you tend to hop around tracks before they've finished you never hear an advert.

Glansel & Gretel (Raw Patrick), Monday, 26 January 2009 13:44 (nine years ago) Permalink

Love the Sir John Betjeman track someone added. Didn't even realise he recorded an album, will check out the rest later.

Billy Dods, Monday, 26 January 2009 14:31 (nine years ago) Permalink

Looks like King Crimson were removed on request: http://www.dgmlive.com/forum.htm?entry=13308

Same goes for KC on YouTube: http://www.dgmlive.com/forum.htm

mike t-diva, Monday, 26 January 2009 16:21 (nine years ago) Permalink

I suspect that Spotify didn't just randomly upload KC material without permission. I would guess they asked Universal or Warner's or whowever can we upload your companies back catalogue and they said sure, then individual artists got wind of it and complained.

I quite like the fact that there aren't social networking features, but I'm sure they'll appear soon.

I wish I knew how vinyl only straight-up unauthorised re-edit stuff like this ended up on there.

Glansel & Gretel (Raw Patrick), Tuesday, 27 January 2009 00:03 (nine years ago) Permalink

There's some info here: http://getsatisfaction.com/spotify/topics/where_is_the_catalogue_on_spotify_really_sourced_from

mike t-diva, Tuesday, 27 January 2009 00:24 (nine years ago) Permalink

The-Dream is listed as D:Ream *roll eyes*

Things can only get better.

Charles Bronson (Raw Patrick), Tuesday, 27 January 2009 13:21 (nine years ago) Permalink

yeah, def needs better data, an equalizer and a suggest ban system

cozwn, Tuesday, 27 January 2009 13:53 (nine years ago) Permalink

suggest ban any song you hear and dislike

Bondzilla vs Mechaholmes (blueski), Tuesday, 27 January 2009 13:57 (nine years ago) Permalink

def. finding this is perfect music you want to listen to but don't want to clutter up a harddrive w/. whole bob dylan back catalogue, all the wu-tang my ears can eat? yes pls

cozwn, Tuesday, 27 January 2009 14:10 (nine years ago) Permalink

i like this.
however, on villalobos : fizheuer zieheuer (part 2), there is vinyl noise.
i've never heard the cd version so could it be that the original has crackles etc ?

mark e, Tuesday, 27 January 2009 15:34 (nine years ago) Permalink

See link posted above - some of this stuff is being sourced from vinyl rips.

mike t-diva, Tuesday, 27 January 2009 16:13 (nine years ago) Permalink

i saw that after i posted, sorry mike.
tis a great application though.
i really hope this is legit, makes people money, and doesn't get shut down.
the catalogue is bursting with stuff i enjoy.

The Pitchfork 500: #1 - 1977-1979.

mike t-diva, Tuesday, 27 January 2009 22:14 (nine years ago) Permalink

am I missing something here?

catalouge seems very bitty to me so far or maybe it's just what I'm searching for...

Is this the kind of thing where I'm better searching for other peoples playlists? or it's meant to be like last.fm with full tracks?

fandango, Wednesday, 28 January 2009 11:26 (nine years ago) Permalink

hmm, it's probably because I used a UK invite isn't it? No Kompakt, no Melt-Banana.. not much of anything so far to be honest so not really much use
