Mississippi Records Download Thread. (Its back!)




From Lip Kodi Ya City Council:

Recently Refreshed: Mississippi Records Download Thread.
Contains: 70s Thai Orchestra, Lipa Kodi Ya City Council, Mortika: Recordings From the Greek Underworld, Parsnip Snips, Oh Graveyard You Can't Always Hold Me, Last Kind Words, Orchestra Regionale de Kayes, Bishop Perry Tillis, Love is Love, and much more.
*Great thread! You might notice, though, that most of the downloads link to rapidshare. As I'm having less and less luck with rapidshare, I went and put at least some of these up in My Own Mississippi Records Download Folder (via Mediafire). Enjoy!

Several of these are still in print. Please consider withholding links to in print titles which are better considered in their physical forms with liner notes and packaging.

respectfully, are they in print as lps? mississippi doesn't release cds or downloads. which titles are you referring to? i do my best to steer clear of things that are otherwise available for purchase new, in cd/mp3 format. i would definitely consider deleting items from my own mississippi folder that are otherwise available as such. ex- i declined to include parsnip snips there, though i own it. i elected to link to the other thread above because it includes an impressive selection of mississippi titles. i don't check the content often now that i've posted this link. i will consider unlinking to that thread. which titles specifically are you referring to, and in what format?

Yeah iannagoski. It's kind of laughable to be getting all defensive over a label that is all about 'out of copyright' stuff. Hmmm?

In respect to Ian who is a good guy and does good records I can understand his point of view but i will register a complaint about mississippi records who i think do enat compilations and great packaging (but not so great mstering at times). As far as the blues stuff goes I know they do not own copies of thes very rare records so they and JSP and whoever else are using masters that rich nevins or nick perls probably spent some good time on, I like the music to get out there but coniderable invertment was made at one time so it;s a shame to take money out of yazoo's pocket by essentially mastering an lp for their cd's or others that did the same thing for all of us.

This is a glorious post. You just made this winter day a little warmer.

You should get a hold of me, I have an almost complete discography of Mississippi as of yet including cassettes. I feel like I have wasted so much time collecting these albums that someone should put them up and share them. I'm just not going to do such a thing. Give me an email and we can set up an FTP or you can look for me on SLSK "b|ack|ung".
