Lossless Musical Love At The Live Music Archive

While I was uploading a Mountain Goats live performance (February of this year in Atlanta) to the Live Music Archive, I wondered why most bands do not avail themselves of this wonderful resource.

In my experience, the fans downloading these live performances are the same hard-core faithful fans that buy every release and evangelize about the music they love, a roaming street team. If you are a musical artist, please consider allowing your live recordings to be archived in the Live Music Archive. If you have contact with a band, consider asking them to set up a taping policy and consider joining the LMA.

The Live Music Archive is continually adding several artists a day to its vaults. In the last month, The Mother Hips, The Soundtrack of Our Lives, Sleepytime Gorilla Museum, and many others have been added in the last month alone. If you have live lossless performances of these artists (or any of those listed at the Live Music Archive), please share the good music and upload them. The exposure will help the musicians and the fans get live music, so everyone benefits.
