    Beachles - Grab it While You Can!

    This is really pretty damn good! Mash-ups of Pet Sounds and Sgt. Peppers with a slightly noisy twist. Surprisingly, the album has stayed up without apparent law suits for a few days, but you know that won't last. Capitol may not want to relive Beatallica, but this is their two biggest selling and most critically acclaimed albums ever after all!

    To be honest () I'm not familiar with the 'Sgt. Peppers' album, but I do have The Beach Boys, and I enjoyed the first track as a remix of them! Hope the site doesn't go down before I can cram the other tracks through my leaky modem... as it were...

    [Edit]

    Bugger! It's gone. Damn you EMI!!!

    But they wanna sue me big time.
    And for what? For making something? So others would look at them as inhuman monsters, utterly incapable of recognizing art? Or is it just the distribution? Nope… all three. Or so they say. I shouldn’t have even made it, they claim. And they want me to give up people’s IPs. That much I can tell you because of some legal humfuddery I dreamt up, but also (and more importantly) because I have a conscience. After all, would any of you want to be sued for following a link from Entertainment Weekly ? For the record, I never sold a single copy of this piece of art—if it is art. Fair use, in your face, come and get me. You can not take my life, Capitol Recordings. Unless you do. Could happen. I wouldn’t put it past you.

      Yeah, you'd think they'd be smart enough to realize that this could have been a major sales promotion for their albums. Instead they seem to want to have the two most influential recordings they ever put out, stop influencing artists to do new things.

        Absolutely! As I say, I wasn't familiar with the Beatles album, and it did make me curious to find out where certain parts of the mash-up came from! I'm not sure I'd go so far as to buy Sgt. Pepper just for that, but there's also a ton of reviews to say it's great. This guy's efforts certainly weren't going to put people off buying the albums, because they're classics, and always mentioned on those "Greatest Albums Ever" polls. I did quite enjoy his rant though, and fair play to him for refusing to hand over any information about his site's visitors.

        Moloch, whose pants are made from nuisance lawsuits!

          You were Capitol/EMI's perfect market Dee, and now they've poisoned the well. Send me a private message with your e-mail, and we can work on your little "problem".
