Subject: RE: My current 'Spotify' playlist
Here's the URL for Spotify. You can download the player and register for free. It's free to play anything you can find on the site, but you get adverts in between every other number or so. Paying a sub frees you from the ads. I usually stop a number playing just before the end, or click on another song title to cut out the ads.
The database is not comprehensive - it's CD only, no older vinyl - and some artists/companies have not signed up at all or only partially. No Beatles, for example. But I've found it of great benefit for quickly finding a particular song or tune for reference - and for serendipitously coming across unfamiliar material.
Some people think that Spotify's access mode to your computer in order to allow the service to stream is unacceptable. I personally couldn't care less. Anyway - there you go...
