I asked Charlie if he would create a Spotify group for interesting finds:

I don't understand, Leon. Where's the link?

You put in the search on Spotify copy and paste for example:

Songs of Freedom from Turkey Behind the Iron Bar

This will take you to the music of this album.

Sorry if not clear.

But there's still no link

Please start at the beginning and make no assumptions that any of us know what we are doing unless you lead us by the hand.

I need to see a website link in red and then I know what to do next.

Hi Charlie,

There is no link. Titles to put into the search box on the top left hand side
of your Spotify playing page.

Copy the below title:

Songs of Freedom from Turkey

then paste into the search box and click. This should then show the album then click to play.

My thought was for members here to list interesting music they find on Spotify from there search or stuff they think is worth a listen.

I know, that's why I keep asking for one, just something that I can start with and then follow your advice to cut and paste.

Okay. I'll just try this link. Like Leon, I used the search window. I discovered by entering the word 'durme' I could pick through an entire listing of Ladino, Sephardic and a few other regional artists, particularly women, as durme is often a title used in lullabies. I found some wonderful artists I had not ever heard before like Suzanne Campagne and some I'd forgotten about like Flory Jagoda. By clicking on the albums that are compilations the list kept expanding to links with other artists. This worked with other words, but to find alternatives to popular music, using English can be a little frustrating - too many pop artists for what I am usually looking for or there are 20,000 tracks or something.

Spotify is a wonderful tool of discovery

Yes Alan thanks.

Sorry to Charlie for missing the link application as I was only thinking about using URI for play list. If you use the link below:



http://open.spotify.com/search/wing

Chinese/New Zealand singer in the Mrs Miller mold.

http://open.spotify.com/search/peret

Nice selection of Peret.

http://open.spotify.com/search/Thailand+Songs+For+Life

Thail artist from the 70's finding his roots of old folk songs.


Fist two links are done by the artist and the last link as Alan has shown
you can do by album. Thanks Alan and Judith. Sorry again to Charlie for me missing the point (link).
