help find locally obscure music

i've come to discover late what i think is a very talented hungarian group called anima sound system. i am looking for an album entitled aquanistan published by emi records in 2003. i've emailed the group & the publishing company to no avail. i've searched all the web sites i can find but have only found two which look like they sell the work but one web site is written, i think, in hungarian and the other might be russian--and so i really have no idea what to do with that. like, even if you can translate, is that someone you give your credit card number to?

i've also checked out the standard online buy-a-song web sites and found many of their songs but there's still a few on this aquanistan album i'd love to have. any suggestions to aid this search would be appreciated.

if you enjoy international music as i do, you can find their complete songs (but not downloadable) on the groups site http://tinyurl.com/w5bum

the web site is also very cool. when you mouse over (or try clicking) the name a section opens to the left. click on english. click on music. click on album. click on 2003 aquanistan. click on legyen igy. a really fun song. can't find it for sale anywhere.

another great song? ok now click on compilation. under 1998 future sound of budapest vol 2 click 7szam:'68.

another really great one is the song "but gindura" on the we strike album.

enjoy

ps. please don't tell anyone about this group. after i found some other music i really enjoyed some automobile company discovered it and played it so much that when i hear it now i just want to vomit.

Re: help find locally obscure music

I always chuckle when I have music that is not on the central CD registry. They just aren't big on Fijiian, Rarotongan and Marquesan gospel music.

What about the Craigslist in Hungary?

http://budapest.craigslist.org/searc...ery=aquanistan

Of course there's a Craigslist in Hungary...

Re: help find locally obscure music

Someone will have the details and I used to know them but there is a central database for music CDs. When I use itunes and put a CD in the computer I can check the CD against the database and it downloads track and album art info. Its pretty rare to have an album it doesn't cover but if you do you can submit info to add a CD.

I get a connection timeout when I try to access that site. I'd be very wary of putting a credit card number into any website with a .ru address unless you know for a fact they are a reputable place.

I know what you mean about hearing a song in a commercial. I like the Norweigan group Röyksopp ( http://www.royksopp.com/ ) and somehow the people of Geico insurance found them and part of one of their songs is in a Geico commercial. :

great idea. that might work. will i get a commission or a finder's fee for letting them know what cd they need to stock to sell me?

sorry about that, a friend of mine with slower high speed and older puter also had trouble accessing anima's site. it's a clever site but not resource-friendly.

perhaps i might contact visa and ask if they've had any complaints from customers submitting info to the russian site. then i just have to convert from rubles and i'm set.

checked out some of royksopp's stuff on amazon. it just has quick clips but from that i think you'd like anima's music.

the song i liked was taken over by lincoln. seems they've finally stopped playing it. i'll try listening again to their cd in another year or so.

I can access it now, it must have been down for a short time this morning. I have high speed cable internet and top of the line computer, so that wasn't it.

You can hear entire Röyksopp songs on their website which I posted above.

LG4NB, does your credit card have some sort of program that generates temporary CC numbers with preset spending limits and expirations dates? MBNA (now BofA) has a program called ShopSafe which is great for just these kind of situations. We use it frequently to buy things like CDs from musician's websites that look dodgy.

hi wonder. no, never heard of such a thing. interesting concept. i'll consider it in the future but i like to have just one credit card and i'm happy with my current set up. not at all into bank of america. from a personal experience, i've long thought of them as rather sleazy. in fact, when mbna switched to bofa i switched my credit card to my bank's.

I'm not sure if all cc companies offer it, but it's part of the same account and it's not a separate card-- it's just a one-time-use number for a particular transaction. Your cc company may offer it right off their website.

I'm not sure what happened in the MBNA deal, but when they went to BofA my Fidelity credit card was peeled off to a company called FIA Card Services. I didn't even notice until my website logins started getting redirected...

Minor nit, but I'll mention it since it bit me once. The "one-time use" numbers are not really one-time use or tied to a particular transaction. Once used, they are tied to a particular merchant account and the numbers have a specific expiration date, but it's not always short term.

For example, DiscoverCard virtual cc's expire when the underlying card expires, but you can ask them to invalidate the number after use. I've also used a mastercard one-time-use number more than once at the same merchant (the MC virtual numbers expire after a month or so).

I've been wondering how the Web's porn sites finer retail establishments handled that issue...

my bank sent out advanced warning but then made the switch months before their announced switch-date. i gave them hell for introducing into my life an entity i didn't want there, though i suppose it is just one of the casualties of modern living.

i'd only give my credit card to a porn site if i could just pay for the scenes i like. itunes lets you pay for individual songs. i don't see why retail porn should be any different.

i finally found a site which offers for sale an album i've been searching for.

Anima Sound System - Aquanistan MP3 Downloads - 7digital

the site was a reference from a search on last.fm

my credit card company does not offer a blind account to make a one time purchase.

would you trust this site with a credit card number? suggestions?
