    Well, I hope you're satisfied! After 20-odd years of no thanks and I'd rather not and no, because it's wrong, I have surrendered my self-respect and joined the millions of blank-visaged ciphers stealing music off the Internet.

    I don't want to dwell on the moment of sticky-fingered satori, save to say it ended with the a slow-zoom back and up, the camera on a crane, me shouting As God is my witness, I'm never buying an album again!

    So in the interest of getting maximum value from my dishonesty, I dl'd only those albums that met the ffollowing criteria:

    1- recorded during the years 1968-1977
    2-can't be an album/artist I already know, or once had any/all of their records
    3- must be the type of record that I'd never buy a good used copy because Possibility It Might Be A Great Album x They Want More Than $20 For It always = No Sale. Obviously I will and have paid more for music, but not on hunch plays out of left field.
    4- perfect example of the type of artist I was looking for: Keef Hartley. When I was a kid, the local record store always had a couple of copies of Keef Hartley Band albums (one was always HALFBREED) even though nobody I knew had any of his records, and I can't ever remember hearing him on the radio. Yet the guy must have had something going for him, or he wouldn't have multiple record releases...right? (This was also a perfect example of the record you stand on line at the register holding with the others you're definitely getting, until you inevitably talk yourself out of buying it at the last minute, for whatever reason, all perfectly plausible. But still.... you always wonder.....)
    5- anyway I ended up st-uhhh, I mean...file-sharing.....about 130 albums over a pretty theft-intensive weekend. Should take me two years to finally figure out what's good and what's gobbidge. As you'd expect, they're practically all up on YouTube like everything else in Christendom, so here's a sampling of what's jumped out at me thus far.

    Freebies are a buzz, but there's something I just can't quite put my...finger on about browsing old record stores,
