Hi

Does anybody know why there is no Michelle Shocked albums on Spotify in the UK? It seems very strange.

Hi there @morsoft,

thanks for reaching out !

 

We want all the world’s music and podcasts on Spotify, but availability can vary over time and between countries, depending on the permissions from rights holders.

We add new content to Spotify every day, so if you can’t find something you’re looking for right now, it may appear (or reappear) soon.

 

Hope this helps

I've been wondering the same thing. When you google why not, it brings up a list of Michelle Shocked's songs that are on Spotify. I really want to hear The Campfire Tapes.

Hi @kathkilker and @morsoft,

 

I wanted to add that you can always use the "Local Files" feature to add your own content to your app.

In order to learn how to do it right, please make sure to check out this help page.

 

On top of that, you can read this Spotify Answer on adding artists/songs to the Spotify app.

 

Hope this helps as well 🙂

According to Now Toronto magazine, November 13 2019 issue, Michelle Shocked is protesting Spotify.

I may need to get my record player repaired.  Her stuff isn't on YouTube, either.

PITY-COME A LONG WAY IS ONE OF THE GREAT SONGS.

It's not just in the UK. I can't find her music in the US, either. She's not on Apple Music, either. I know some artists have a reaal beef with the music streaming services. Is she one of them? I really want to hear the Short Sharp Shocked album.

The article https://nowtoronto.com/music/features/artists-vs-spotify/ says she is protesting Spotify.  I purchased a used CD player last week and the first CD I put in was one of hers.

Praise the Lord I kept my CD player. I purchased an old car with a tape player. I have her tapes.

I think Michelle has always been fighting “the Man” in one way or another.

 

  • I was at a “Kind Hearted Woman” performance in Sydney in 1990-something and got to see her again afterwards at work! 

 

They were selling the “Kind Hearted Woman” CD at the performance and I think there was some problem with the record company.

Back at the hotel, Michelle - guitar in hand - flanked on either side by a hairy fiddle playing beardy were engaged in a discreet session for their own enjoyment as they waited for a nightcap.  Huddled as if trying not to attract attention as they played for each other. It was like seeing the Chieftains in a little session playing for their own pleasure.
