RhoDeo 1705 Re-Ups 85

Hello, plenty of requests for re-ups this week even with discounting the 'demands' of Gianni Zhivago who seems to think that asking for a re-up of 8 posts will have me jump to provide you with filler for your hard-disks, nice try but no cigar Gianni. The thing is this blog doesn't get thousands of visitors every day, in fact i estimate there's about 5,000 regular (monthly) visitors. Considering that the whole download mania of the previous decade has subsided as people have been more and more immersed into what the internet has to offer, and with connectivity speeds much higher these days, people's patience has diminished and as the pace of life has increased, it follows that going through the motions of downloading something has become less appealing, as instant gratification becomes the norm. Then there is the fear of big brother who seems to register everything (and knows nothing ), meanwhile You Tube and Facebook assimilate most free time people spend on the web. Let's face it we music lovers are a dying breed.

Usually i upload about 10 gig every week, today i post as much at re-up 85, plenty to scour then as no less then 6 posts are in flac for the first time...N joy

These days i'm making an effort to re-up, it will satisfy a small number of people which means its likely the update will  expire relatively quickly again as its interest that keeps it live. Nevertheless here's your chance ... asks for re-up in the comments section at the page where the expired link resides, or it will be discarded by me. ....requests are satisfied on a first come first go basis. ...updates will be posted here  remember to request from the page where the link died! To keep re-ups interesting to my regular visitors i will only re-up files that are at least 12 months old (the older the better as far as i am concerned), and please check the previous update request if it's less then a year old i won't re-up.

Looka here another batch of 38 ! re-ups, requests fullfilled up to January 31th.

Hi, Rho,
Thanks for all your posts, re-ups, insights, gripes, knowledge and general entertainment.
You're absolutely right about us being a dying breed, but sometimes things from the past have escaped our notice and for those I salute you.
What has always bothered me is that some of us bought the vinyl back in the day, later recorded it onto metal cassette to preserve the product, bought it again on "perfect sound, forever" CD, "remastered" CD, special (20th, 30th..) deluxe editions etc. I know we don't "own" the work (and sometimes, neither do the artists), just the licence to listen to it. Basta!
So much music. So little time (left).
Best wishes.
