MP3s Galore
Last updated: 11.11.17
This web page was originally set up to cover folk music and recorder artists who had deposited their *.mp3 files at the now defunct MP3.com and was taken down with the demise of MP3.com in January 2003. It has now been revived in order to cover the vast amount of mp3 albums and tracks available at the Amazons. As of 11.11.17, the number of MP3 items presently included are as follows:
Group Albums Tracks Totals
Brass 127 2132 2259
Folk Music 502 9049 9551
Pipeband 14 219 233
Ragtime 259 4096 4355
Recorder 94 2025 2119
Totals 996 17521 18517

Because of legal niceties regarding licensing in the various countries, the Amazons have been obliged to provide unique stock numbers (ASIN's) for each MP3 album and track in each country (locale). This has resulted in not only a 4-fold increase of data to be generated and checked but also opens the door for a 4-fold increase of errors. Same stock numbers are sometimes used for different articles, this is especially true for Amazon.de. This not being enough, not only do the tracks given in some MP3 albums vary from country to country but there are also sometimes differencies between the albums and the original CDs. Confusion can arise so please take care if ordering these items. Although the data has been carefully checked during compilation it is completely at the mercy of the Amazons whenever they make changes. Remember, caveat emptor!
A final word. This huge collection of items can be made more interesting, informative and helpful if surfers' comments or anecdotes on the various pieces are available. Please send comments/review, they will be very welcome.
