Spotify Is Becoming MySpace, While Apple Music Becomes Facebook 

I used to insist Apple had a chance because of the fact that half the world has an iPhone in their pocket. But my confidence started to wane. now I see this...

Interesting take.

Although Apple's quarterly revenue streak was recently broken, a bump in Apple Music subscribers offered one bright spot in an otherwise grim report, suggesting Apple may finally be creating some perceived value in its music, even as Spotify loses ground. _____________________________ Guest Post by George Howard on Forbes As reported...

For some people, buying physical CD media is more cost effective in the long term then free streaming or paid subscription.
Especially those with mobile data caps or bandwidth restrictions.

In some cases the physical media is less expensive if you take the time to shop around. Your best source for out of print media is YouTube or auction web sites.
I recommend checking around on YouTube first.

YT have deleted a lot of music videos over the years and they have been getting more aggressive in the last couple of years deleting videos and entire uploader channels. It's copy right infringement on take down notices from certain music labels from around the World.

I have a lot experience with that because I like collecting rare or unique artist collections. I have been using YouTube long before Google bought it. If someone has the time and patience extensively searching music on YT, there is hidden music gold on YT. You have to dig it out and dig deep. There are/were a lot of out of print music, entire very rare collection sets uploaded over the years on YT. Some of those collection sets fetch high dollars on auction sites because they are out of print. One entire collection set I have is valued from $700.00 to $900.00 at auction and no I have no intention of ever selling them.

I will give you a hint on who it is.
This is the only such video of it's kind in existence on the Internet. It is safely stored in China. Whether you watch and listen to the entire concert is up to you, it runs for 1 1/2 hours.

This article clears a little of the fog surrounding how revenue from YouTube uploads is determined, as well as how the video sharing site's content management system functions and whether or not, as a content creator, monetization is the best choice for you. ___________________________________ Guest Post by Chris Castle on...

+TJ Way he'll listen to me at least... it is definitely an idea worth thinking on. Some services are offered already, we need a good economist to come up with projections of what may be saved or earned by offering a comprehensive service. Numbers make all the difference... I firmly believe that's why the independent voice is often ignored... we have no real numbers to back up our "grievances," but which of us can afford a team of financial analysts?

Music Business: Growth is not always healthy

"Of and by itself, growth is not a good indicator of health. Think the growth of tumors, cancer cells, and leprosy. I will spare you the sickening pictures that could totally make my point. But let’s talk the most current breathless ode to growth: Streaming."

True in any business in any industry - growth can put a lot of strain on its operations. I agree that artists and songwriters are the ones suffering. Ironically, what needs to happen for positive change is for musicians to partner up with tech companies that are interested in helping artists. Congrats on your feature, Corey.

How Record Labels Buy Social Media Love From Teenage ‘Influencers’

Very interesting story that you can look two ways:

1) "Man, how can I compete. The labels are stacking the deck against us poor Indie musicians. Poor me [wipe tears from eyes]."

OR

2) "Great idea! I wonder how I could use this strategy to promote my music and build a fan base."
