Some albums missing

Why is it that some albums from a particular artist are missing. For example, "Wolrd Painted Blood" by Slayer is not there but a lot of their other stuff is.

"We'd love to have all the world's music in our catalogue. But for a number of reasons some artists, or a few of their tracks, aren't currently available on Spotify. This might be down to agreements not yet having been reached with the artist or their record label, or due to changes in ownership. We're adding thousands of albums and artists every day. So if an artist is not currently present they may well be appear, or reappear, on Spotify shortly. In the meantime, you could contact the artist, or their label, and ask them if and when they plan to be on Spotify again."

Spotify puts on their Library whatever the Record Label sends them, so it's possible they don't have the rights to that album

Spinal Tap's 2009 release, "Back from the Dead", not on there.

Same with Steve Taylor's album, "Liver".

Well, I quite understand, that if a new album appears, an album has just not been made available to spotify or an artist does not want it up there anymore, it's just not there.

What I don't understand, is why whole albums from artists just 'vanish', while other albums stay available. For example: A few albums and songs from Bear McCreary are available, but let's say 'Battlestar Galactica: Season 4' is not available. I can find the album on spotify in the web, but the whole thing is just greyed out. Meaning I can't find it on the App or the Program. I know it's just a playlist from somebody but in order for somebody to make a playlist, the song needs to be available in the first place.

So, is that supposed to mean that Bear McCreary just suddenly decided not to make the Season 4 Album available any more? I just can't believe that...

It seems likely to me, that either Spotify would've had to pay him something (again?) or even more likely just got rid of it to make space for different music, because nobody was listening to it. Both fair enough.

 

But not if you say you want to have all the music in the world... If you say something like that, it should be worth paying him, or in the other case, paying for the server space.

But I'm guessing the songs that vanished and were not popular just won't be back.
