Rodriguez not available in Costa Rica?

Hi, i have a premium US account and imI traveling in Costa Rica at the moment . I noticed that i cannot access any music from the artist (sixto) Rodriguez, including the stuff i had downloaded to my phone beforehand .

Is that due to regional restrictions? Are there more artists i cannot listen to while I'm here? Will it come back to my library once i leave here? Is there any more info on ghis topic somewhere?

Thanks!

Try to search just for "Rodriguez". The Soundtrack to the movie and another album is available, at least for me (I live in germany)

Same problem here in the Netherlands. Before yesterday all songs were available, now only a select few.

I sent an email to the spotify support desk. They suggested that it could be because the author's rights have changed and they were forced to take the music down from spotify :(.

After some investigations, here is what I can tell, from here in France :

 

On the profile page of Rodriguez, I find :

 

Albums :

 

1970 : Cold Fact

spotify:album:2Mftce9gY24uWz8pLIMbRP:small

 

1971 : Coming From Reality

spotify:album:731grwIQU8mgcOueLCPoGJ:small

 

Singles and EP's :

 

2010 : Record Store Day 7"

spotify:album:6ssxScXjJlSttC1JE0n7Mp:small

 

Curiously not appearing on profile, we can find this album soundtrack :

 

2012 : Searching For Sugar Man

spotify:album:4s7qz6sSmn1gzphGM9P5dK:small

 

According to the availabilty map, except Searching For Sugar Man which seems to be unknown by the map, both 2 other albums and Single, seem to be vailable in every countries covered by Spotify.

 

But for licensing reasons, it is possible to find it available only in certain countries.

 

I Hope that will help.

 

Don't hesitate to request more informations if it needs. :)

Hey and thanks for looking into this, but unfortunately it is still not possible to access his music (except a couple of tracks). I tried the links you sent but other than showing the album name there is nothing to listen to.

I guess author rights have changed outside of france
