soul albums full on youtube

Recommended Posts

youtube has some albums in full available - current labels such as Tru Thoughts Record seem to make use of this 

here's one posted last year  - any caught your ear?

2- Turn It Up feat Boom 07:18

The Bamboos fourth album 4 was released by Tru Thoughts in 2010. Of the 12 tracks three were instrumental and the remaining nine featured vocalists Kylie Auldist, Lyrics Born and King Merc (the latter actually Lance Ferguson with vocal processing effects). The album incorporated elements of Psychedelic Rock and soundtrack music into the blend of Funk, Soul and Hip Hop that comprised the sound of the band's earlier albums. It was also the first album to feature a live string section.

Kano Hollamby produced the album cover artwork which depicts the band looking out of framed boxes (Hollamby was responsible for all Bamboos album/release art up to this album), and two video clips were produced for the album's opening singles. UK's Blues & Soul Magazine called it 'Simply Stunning' and 'an Instant Classic'.

The band embarked on a tour of Australia, U.K and Europe adding Stevie Hesketh (Jet, The Drones) on keyboards, recording BBC Radio Sessions for Craig Charles and performing at venues such as The Barbican (U.K) and La Bellevilloise (France). The song 'On The Sly' was later used in a scene of the hit U.S movie Crazy, Stupid, Love. 'You Ain't No Good' featured on the U.S TV show Hellcats. In 2010 The Bamboos also appeared on ABC TV's Sunday Arts Show, headlined The St Kilda Festival and performed as the backing band for U.S Soul legends Syl Johnson and Eddie Floyd.

Shirelles "lost and found"

You don't really get forum posting at times do you?

The thinking with topics like this is that you post up just the one example ideally with a link, maybe a bit of background, say a listing, maybe a few words on why you are posting and then...

hopefully people listen, enjoy and talk about it

-----------------------------------

Anyway never sure with some of the full clips on youtube - have the labels been paid off or/and given permission for these videos up?

have to take it that they have, if not then they may need to be aware?

here's a comp that I have keep going back to over recent years...

Many of these albums are not put up by the label and registered properly for streaming revenues to the collected, so are piracy in another form.  They often get taken down again fairly quickly.

Where the label has done it, it seems confusing to do that but then release it on CD too. They are literally killing off their own sales.

It's one thing to licence it to a full streaming service such as Spotify, GooglePlay etc but just to put the whole album on YouTube is daft I think.

I used to run a legal music streaming/download service and labels/artists are often so keen to get the music out they have no view on the commercial aspects, especially in this area of transition to fully digital.

seen quite a few current labels nowadays stream their 'current' releases in full, not always on youtube but via other free services inc own websites

online audio is in an interesting place nowadays and youtube does raise a few interesting q's

if a track/album is available online via a legal source then should we on here and similar places  ignore it or take it that by being on a legal site it is legal?

how can you tell/know if the artist or label has claimed advertising rights on the youtube clip as can happen?

should it be up to the labels to police theirs and artists interests?

my own feeling is to draw the line as per 'where if it is legally available then take it that it is legal'

any thoughts?
