    Do you know if these guys ever made a CD or released their music otherwise? The only place I've heard them is (WDW) on a promotional film from the 80s, and (DLR) in a mix in a retrospective series.

    There was an album released in 1976 (I think) called "WDW Adventureland Steel Band" that included 12 tracks. I believe the band, "J.P. and the Silver Stars" has other CDs available as well.

    It is the Silver Stars. Sigh; I miss the old Adventureland (WDW).

    There goes that. :angry:

    As for JP and the Silver Stars, I'm not finding any albums by them. I'll check again tomorrow.

    Ahhh... I was searching the forums for information about this album. Extremely rare, huh? Great... :)

    In my experience, the Steel Band's album isn't even remotely rare. I got it on eBay in mint condition for a song.

    Sounds awesome, by the way. One of my favorite records.

    Kudos to who provided that rip. I've been wanting to hear those recordings for a few months now. :)

    Decisions like this have to make you wonder though. The fact that something may be out of print doesn't mean the copyright no longer exists. I'm not trying to start a debate on this issue, just passing off the article.

    Which was why I phrased it the way I did.
    No incitement, just information (that should cover me) :)
    I doubt anyone thinks that copyright only exists for current work (I hope).

    Well, let's face it, if it were available for purchase digitally or even on CD I'm sure many of us would do so. I actually have an interesting in finding a copy of the vinyl if I can- though even in that case the original artists would not see a cent. Unfortunately items like these will remain a gray area for some time (until the copyrights just expire and then anyone can share it with whomever they like- but that wont be for quite a while).
