Why do musicians allow their music to be uploaded to the likes of Spotify if they get so little financial reward from it? What's in it for the record labels and distributors? I use Spotify to investigate an artist who I've read about or maybe heard a single track of. I'm reluctant to buy an album on the basis of just one track. There was a site (Myspace?) on which they might load 3 or 4 tracks from an album which seemed sufficient to decide whether the album was worth purchasing. I think this can done on Spotify (ie upload a few, rather than all) tracks although I've rarely seen this done. I wonder why
