It’s sounds beautiful to me but I’m not an expert in classical music! My opinion

I think this is done, finished! As far as I can tell, all the watermarked tracks I had noticed (I had a playlist of hundreds) have been fixed, at least in the UK. I am VERY pleased about this.

 

Even the track that @Joerg1959 mentioned recently is fixed:

In order to hear the benefits you may need to clear out some old files or try some of the embedded players earlier in this thread.

 

I would recommend

  • Redownloading on mobile
  • Clearing your desktop player cache
  • Checking the songs on the web player, which won't be so heavily cached https://open.spotify.com

Hi,

yes this is fixed!!! 
I am happy for you that you finally got your music being OK.

 

Also fixed I find:
spotify:track:5YWryYosl6mOw40ukMJ9gm

from Album "Ultimate Mancini": https://open.spotify.com/album/0DtY3IPZf6SWFbNogGGnKh?si=xSJms_PoRP-F8OS6pIeGlw

THANK YOU SPOTIFY FOR FIXING THIS!!!

 

Still There is trouble with the following Telarc Album: https://open.spotify.com/album/1k2n9VELfCoGY4kF4O6NCn?si=Wa1jIkHeQDOUjtE75DkaZA

Furthermore I find marked: https://open.spotify.com/album/3FvCc4TJTROE8iBikj3fsX?si=HYr38CVBSyGzNiK6TodGGg

 

I did  a random sample of other TELARC music, but did not find further markings. Good to see that not everything is compromised. 

Given the recent improvements I hope more and more music is fixed.

Keep it up Spotify.
Best Regards
Jörg

Ah yes, perhaps I spoke too soon! I can definitely confirm the issue remains on a substantial number of Telarc Jazz recordings, including the following:

Hopefully, the process will continue in order to remove these watermarks from this catalogue as it has on other Concord/UMG releases.

Please check again (remember to clear the cache). All the tracks I've been sampling lately seemed to have been cleaned up! Or maybe my hearing is going.
