Tele Music anniversary compilation
« on: July 26, 2018, 01:43:32 AM »
I'd not seen any references to it in the forum, so I thought I'd try to contribute a little something.

It's been there for a good stretch of time, but Tele Music has a FREE compilation on Bandcamp to celebrate their 50th anniversary in 2016(?).  It's actually a pretty good selection with a few personal favourites of mine, and it may also serve as a good introduction to the tragically deprived that aren't familiar with the label. 

As with all Bandcamp downloads it's available as lossless or mp3.  They also won't hound you for personal information for free transactions.

Here's a link for all interested parties: hxxps://telemusic.bandcamp.com/album/anthologie-50-ans

Happy listening.

Yeah, good one. I remember we have discussed about it in a previous incarnation of this board.
Thank you for pointing everybody else to that comp.

As far as I remember, the tracks appear to have been converted from lossy rips.

And also, not put out by Telemusic. It's an illegal bootleg. I remember we all talked about this on one of the old boards.

Hm. First of all, it appears a bit strange to call this "illegal", particularly in this forum.

Secondly, the sound is rather good -- better in fact than a lot of the home-made rips that are being offered here --, and the tracks have definitely not been transcoded from lossy rips. The spectral analyses look ok. Bitrates range from 718 to 1045 kbits/s. This most probably excludes any lossy compression standard that I know of.

In this forum, no one is selling anything, they are sharing/giving away for free material that is not available for commercial purchase anywhere - which was the whole point of the shares in this community from day 1. If something IS legitly available for commercial purchase, it is not even allowed to be posted.

Selling is what makes this bandcamp bootleg "illegal", and whoever is doing it on that page is risking one hell of a loss suit from Telemusic if ever caught. Shocked they haven't been nabbed yet after all this time.

They do not sell it. It's the exact same thing as the rips that appear here, just on a different website. You can go ahead and download it -- which you likely already did. And, as said before, the quality of the rip is impeccable. The data is lossless, and it sounds very good.

I wonder what you were talking about on one of the old boards regarding that rip. Was it nonsense, perhaps?

(I did not, by the way, imply that LMT were doing illegal things.)

If Tele Music has not sued them yet it most probably means they are ok with it. They will certainly be aware of it after five years of the rip being up.

I am fairly sure that many library labels are celebrating the interest their products have created in recent years in the general population. These records were never meant to be listened to and cherished decades later. It furthers their actual business, namely selling these tracks and artists for commercial purposes.

One more thing: Tele Music would be silly for suing anyone for it. They would be laughed out of court. There is no "loss suit" to be had here since Tele Music simply have suffered no loss whatsoever. Their business is not directed at private persons who merely enjoy listening to that music.

They do not sell it.

Originally, they were selling it when it first hit a few years back. They must have switched it to a free download at some point, which now is like you said, not illegal. I hadn't looked at in a few yrs.

And why so gaslighting and defensive? Never seen you around before....by your super intense and defensive reaction to my old comment, would think maybe you or a friend of yours were possibly the ones behind the Telemusic comp  ;)

Oh...you did not??

What PL says here is exactly what we always try to do, always keeping an eye on the matter.

No, I didn't.

From my perspective the following happened:

I read the topic, went to Bandcamp, downloaded the Tele Music compilation and thanked the poster for the link.

Then I saw that someone had claimed that the tracks on the compilation were lossy transcodes. Someone else had agreed and added that the compilaton were "illegal".

But the tracks are not lossy transcodes, it's a high-quality compilation. And you can go and download it right now.

Which means the blokes on Bandcamp have done the exact same thing that people here on LMT are doing, and impeccably.

So, if someone accuses someone else of doing illegal things, and if these things are identical to the things he himself is doing, there are two possibilities:

(1) These things are illegal, in which case he has just accused himself of doing illegal things as well.
(2) These things are not illegal, which means he is talking nonsense.

In both cases someone should have remained silent.

But he didn't. So that's strange. That is what I meant. I did not know that years ago that compilation was in fact being sold.

Peace

My original comment was neither intense nor defensive. I said that I find it strange to accuse the blokes on Bandcamp of illegality for putting out a library compilation when people here are doing the very same thing. And I pointed out that the tracks are not lossy transcodes, and that they sound rather good. That is all.

I have nothing to do with Bandcamp, or the compilation.

OK, I hope I could clear this up. I did not intend to create any bad feelings.

I guess that Tele Music told them to either take it down or make it available for free. Tele Music are probably happy with that compilation. As they should be.
