Missing Music...why?

Solved!

Missing Music...why?

Can someone explain why the following albums have recently gone missing:

 

Pavement - "Brighten The Corners"

Pavement - "Terror Twilight"

Smashing Pumpkins - "Pisces Iscariot"

Smashing Pumpkins - "Mellon Collie & The Infinite Sadness"

Smashing Pumpkins - "Adore"

Ted Leo & The Pharmacists - "The Tyranny Of Distance"

Ted Leo & The Pharmacists - "Hearts Of Oak"

Ted Leo & The Pharmacists - "Shake The Sheets"

 

Is there an ETA for the return of any of these?

 

Also...Is there any chance that the following will be added soon:

 

Built To Spill - "There Is Nothing Wrong With Love"

Modest Mouse - "This Is A Long Drive For Someone With Nothing To Think About"

Modest Mouse - "The Loneseome Crowded West"

Modest Mouse - "Building Nothing Out Of Something"

Genesis - "The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway"

Peter Gabriel

Pink Floyd

John Lennon

 

Your competitors seem to have them...

Hello:

 

Currently there is 5 different versions of Children of Bodom's release of Follow The Reaper on the Spotify service. Currently that release is not available in these listening regions: AD AT BE BG CY CZ EE FR DE GR HK HU IT LV LI LT LU MY MT MC NL PH PL PT RO ES SG SK SI CH TW TR

spotify:album:41hbHSyag7sYYeEGLZc9Wn

spotify:album:2LOHiAJJQ1hqaoPaZ5krE9

spotify:album:0NKpTEeKamtrjMhoukn6Zy

spotify:album:1oh6m7Lzdm9ds2kR7sx3ge

spotify:album:7LFwhnMRgfnMgOz6g66YCQ

 

Now if the release you had access to was available and then just became unavailable recently, give this a couple weeks to get corrected. Normally the content comes back as licenses need updated for the content to continue again for different listening regions.

 

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.

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) soon. In the meantime, feel free to contact the artist or their label to ask when they plan to be on Spotify.

 

Why is Michael Calfan Treasured Soul EP not available?

This is very surprising and annoying.

 

It seems to be the case that parts of several classical recodings have disappeared (for example half of the recording can be played, but the rest cannot be played). The same has happened with pop-music also.

 

This type of sudden disappearances makes one to seriously reconsider the rationality of continuing with Spotify Premium.

I think Spotify is suffering from a technical glitch again. I've also had random tracks disappear from my playlists (even some of Spotify's own ones that I subscribed  are affected).

 

Either there has been a major label or distributor withdrawing or there is a glitch.

 

The albums in question that are entirely empty are the Various Artist ones from the Night Of The Proms. I contacted them and got this reply:

 

"I’m afraid the unrelease of the compilation was not done “on our commando”. Sorry to hear your playlists got messed up."

 

I'm also thinking about migrating, just the hassle keeps me (I have quite a lot of "configuration" done, playlists, etc... ).

 

And yes, I'm a premium member - I think if I had just bought the albums I'm regularly listening to I'd have ended up spending less. I'm here for the lack of hassle (not having to rip and upload tracks to my devices). If this keeps happening, I'll have to go back to buying CDs... 

Have also noticed spotify has all of "three days grace" but on the one-x album its missing "running away" my fav song 😞 

I just resubscribed to Spotify and a few albums I really used to enjoy listening to are missing. Could you let me know if this is a technical issue or license issue? These are just 2 that come to mind, but there may be many more. I used Spotify for years and they were always available... I just resubscribed after not using Spotify for about a year so I really hope its not a license issue...

Thank you! I forgot that I made a critical life change since being an earlier subscriber... I moved to Singapore. Makes total sense!

That's rather interesting information.

 

Could you do this lookup for "Night Of The Proms 2005" and "Night Of The Proms 2006"?

 

They seem to have disappeared, and I didn't move... (actually, I can see them as playlist, but all tracks are unavailable, Album cover is missing, too)

 

Cheers,

Hello:

 

Sadly those two releases are not coming up as available on the Spotify service currently.

 

I use this web service here: https://jcheng31.github.io/isitonspotify/ that uses the Spotify API, when doing keyword look-ups for releases on all listening regions that have access to content on the Spotify service. Just make sure to select either track or album titles from the pull down tab when pasting the title of the content into the name field.

 

When I have a Spotify URI link handy, I use this web service that uses the Spotify API as well here: http://kaaes.github.io/albums-availability/#0KJYApJRtacNp8YtIBiVJL this web service only does full album look ups.

 

There is also this the Spotify API console here: https://developer.spotify.com/web-api/console/

 

Users need to know a little bit about how to get to ID strings for Artist pages, tracks, albums, and user created playlists, so as to input the correct information to get correct return results using the Spotify API endpoints. This URL here: https://developer.spotify.com/web-api/console/get-search-item/

is so users can use standard search terms to find items they are looking for throughout the Spotify service be it an album, artist, track, and/or playlist.

Hi,

 

thanks you for these links, they contain a great set of hints how to solve my own questions! 🙂

 

Now I can forward that info to the publisher of the albums I was looking for...

I'm missing Camron: Come home with me 

Redman: Docs da name 2000

Prince: Purple Rain (I know what happened to that, but I hope it is not the same case for the rest). 

DOn't let them win Spotify. I love streaming from my phone to the playstation while I perform fatalities in MK10. I don't want to go to Tidal or Apple music, they suck! 

10cc's album Ten Out of 10 is not there

Hi,

 

found another missing album:

 

No Angels - ElleMents

 

If you look at the stuff available from No Angels, there are quite a few large gaps, however other tracks are there. This looks like a technical glitch (again) to me... 

 

Ulli

Count on You - Tommy Shaw
When I'm Gone - Albert Hammond
Where Are You now - Jimmy Harnen
Thanks.

Please upload the following song..

Count on You - Tommy Shaw

Tory lanez contolla and sydney renae into you are still missing

De La Soul's song, A Roller Skating Jam Named "Saturdays" is missing! Help! Please!

How do I suggest an album to be added?

Bush Babees "Ambushed" should be added.

Why are Jay-Z's "Reasonable Doubt" or "Blueprint" albums not available??
