I’m grateful for your interest in Ran’s music, but please respect his intellectual property rights by removing these mp3s. Bootleg records on the internet deteriorate record sales. I appreciate your understanding and do expect these mp3 to be removed as soon as possible. Please visit Ranblake.com to join his newsletter to find out about upcoming performances and new CD releases. ~Ran Blake’s domestic manager, Aaron Hartley

Dear Mr. Hartley,
even though I really understand your motives, I would like to confess than I really got the motivation of buying this CD (what I have done actually NOW, this last minute) after listening to the music uploaded on this blog. I believe in this way of spreading music, and that it might be more productive to encourage the good will of people to support what they love, than criminalizing their curiosity. I myself download music this way, mostly for evaluation purposes, and end up buying a lot of the stuff I download. I never stopped buying a CD because I had downloaded it before. On the other hand, I always reacted bad against any restrictive step taken against it. This is the way the public should ideally see this - as the most powerful publicity channel you ever had in your hands-. I myself have spent a lot of money in people I would have never known through the normal broadcasting channels. Blogs like this are to thank for that.

I have not much to add, except that I have not only bought the CD for myself but actually ordered it for the music store I'm working for...
