Seems like anytime I turn on an oldies station, I get songs that say they are by a particular artist, but are actually "tribute" bands or fun "60s collections". The split between original songs and fake ones are about 50/50, it's very very bad.
#1, many of these are much worse than the originals, or at least not the same.
#2, this takes plays from the original artists and gives it to people who then exploit the system to create more of the same
#3, I hit thumbs down on a song to stop playing it and it records that I don't like that song by that artist, which sucks because I just want to hear the actual song by the actual artist.
Can you guys do some cleanup on this? Just a quick listen to just about any generated 60s radio station will show this problem. Or, alternatively, would you recommend that I record a collection of my own so I can get listens from people trying to hear other bands so at least I can profit from this issue?
Actually, I can give a concrete example. I just got "The Diamond Ring" by "Gary Lewis & the Play Boys", which was a fake version of "This Diamond Ring" by "Gary Lewis & the Playboys", which exists on Spotify but didn't come up during radio play.
