Hello All -- I fully support Spotify's decision to stand by Joe Rogen and free speech principles, and I couldn't care less about Neil Young. Rather, I'm annoyed I have lost some of my best music on Spotify in recent months due to artists "disappearing" from the platform. Among my losses:
1- Bobby BeauSoleil -- X Rising -- this was the crown jewel of my Halloween playlist
2- Link Wray, "Hillbilly Wolf"; Lee Kristofferson, "Night of the Werewolf"
3- Disco Obscurities like Jean-Pierre Massiera, "Dali Court"; Sharon Bailey, "Cosmic Dust"; Anna, "Systems Breaking Down"; Guy Called Gerald, "Voodoo Ray"; Skatt Brothers, "Walk the Night"
For me the great pleasure of Spotify is the relatively obscure to the totally obscure music that I am able to discover and then add to playlists. I realize there's no money for Spotify in any single obscure artist. But it's the loads of obscure artists that have brought me to the platform, and led me to finally ditch my record collection at age 50.
How do we correct this trend of great artists and songs disappearing from Spotify???
