Thread Name: Help: Licensing Songs for Recording
Subject: Help: Licensing Songs
As I prepare to release a cd (small run <100), I have been through the dreaded Harry Fox Agency to license songs I am covering. There are a couple of songs that even Harry Fox does not know about, or does not provide licensing. I have researched the web trying to contact the composers with no luck. Does anyone have any suggestions?...or know what the consequence of just putting it out there? I do not want to rip anyone off, will certainly acknowledge the source, and gladly pay the fee should anyone come forward.
Any info is appreciated. Thanks.
