Free, Legal and Disco...

It’s nice to see that some pop groups are embracing the possibilities opened up by the Internet rather than fighting a losing battle against them. The Swedish disco group, Alcazar, not only has their videos online (see The Media Room) but even provides high quality MP3 downloads of most of their hits. The downloads aren’t the versions of the songs you’ll find on their albums (they still want you to buy those); instead, they are remixes - and, frankly, none the worse for that.

Now if only Günther would put online some extended remixes of The Ding Dong Song, my happiness would be complete….
