A friend of mine wants to record a medley of three songs, one from the 1860's, and two that were written after 1970. How does she handle licensing for a medley? If she goes to Harry Fox Agency, does she have to pay full price for each of the two songs?
Does she need special permission to combine songs like that?

Didn't we have a thread on this very recently?

The result, I think, was

a) Harry Fox agency specifically say that they do not licence medleys
b) But everyone seems to have adopted the strategy of paying for each tune separately, and no-one has ever been queried on it.

Joe - I have recorded two 3-song medleys, and I pay for each individual song.

In one of them, I pay one author - Bill Staines - personally, and the other two through Harry Fox.

And in the other instance all 3 are paid through Harry Fox.

Hope this helps.

Oh yeah, on the CD recording, the songs are played consecutively with key-changes,etc., but I've put an ID at the end of each song, so that a listener can play each song individually if so desired.
This would probably also solve the Harry Fox ban on medleys.
