Looks like it's time to start syncing those local files. It's a shame when something gets pulled from Spotify unannounced, especially when it's a rather hidden gem like Big Star

I really wish we could do that from the phone app. Either way I hope they put it back up soon

Yeah me too. Most of the songs from those albums are still on Spotify in live/demo form, though. Some of those alternate versions are actually better than the album versions, too

I'll have to check it out, I didn't think about it. I was too busy being mad that they were gone lol.

Yeah I understand. It was a shock to me, too. I'll also have to rip and sync my copy of Chris Bell's "I Am the Cosmos" since that album was taken down as well

The reason is that the artist or their music label has likely decided to remove it from Spotify.

The availability of music on Spotify is up to the artist and their music label.

Spotify wants all the world's music, and they're working hard on making this happen for you. However sometimes agreements can't be reached with the artist or label or a change may happen in music ownership. Sometimes the music is only available in certain countries, while access is blocked to others. Sometimes the album or song will be unavailable temporary, and come back again later.

Spotify adds thousands of albums and artists are added every day. If you can't find an artist you're looking for, they may appear (or reappear if removed) soon. In the meantime, feel free to contact the artist or their label to ask when they plan to be on Spotify.
