• Music Songbooks

    From Nelgin@nelgin@endofthelinebbs.com.nospam to MUSICALNET.Sheet_Music on Wed Apr 7 03:46:16 2021
    I was a big user of swappano and pianofiles and the like before they all got taken down.

    For those unfamiliar, these are sites where people list music books they have and want and can exchange pdf files with other users.

    It's well known that these books go out of print quickly and not many are produced, especially for older bands. Used, some of these books can list for hundreds of dollars (or insert currency here).

    1966 Gary Lewis and the Playbooks is listed at $399.99 + shipping. Elton John Super Deluxe 1977 songbook is listed at $599 for buy it now or $389 if you
    want to bid on it.

    So, a lot of people share their pdf scans.

    I just wondered if there's any one else around who collect/swap songbooks and would be interested in swapping lists.

    I would be more than happy to create a file section here on SS3 for people to share those things in if there is any interest in it. If someone has a collection they would like to upload just let me know and I'll make the file section.

    I would do the same except for fear of falling foul of the copyright nazis
    that still go after people for out of print book sharing. I guess because much of it is available for download.

    I guess you just need to make sure that particular file area isn't browsable from the web if you have an interface into your BBS files area.

    Cool. I'll have to find a way to get my collection to you next week sometime.
