Well I did hear some Man I hadn't heard before on there (early Bananas). Suspect that it is in 'introductory offer' mode and the ads will become more frequent at some point. You don't own the music of course but a useful way of hearing music you never got round to.

I've just had a look (from a safe distance) and there is quite a bit of Man stuff there, including all of the extended Greasy Truckers which I've just noticed has an extra minute of Spunk Rock at the beginning.

Presumably - and provided I get it right - the output could be recorded onto Audacity/Cubase?

This story makes it sound like something to avoid.

Joined up a couple of nights ago on the back of this.   This is going to allow me to answer my Nick Cave question (although it might call into question why I'd want to buy the remastered CD's at all given the availability on this) and also allow me to listen to The Replacements (another band of some repute that I'm not familiar with).  There will be others...........

Hmmm....that's two threads were an intended link has been read as pure text....would it be better if a link was a more contrasting colour? or underlined?

As for Spotify - well there's loads there, even allowing for duplication of certain tracks, e.g. where they subsequently re-appear on a compilation. Of our extended family, I could only find 'Man' stuff. I'm on the free but with adverts option. These pop up at the end of a track and are pretty awful. One minute you're drifting away to Can then BOOM it's some over-excited pseudo teenager telling you to buy the next Girl's Aloud album for probably 30 seconds, but it seems like two hours. Doesn't happen after every track, it seems random.
