I'd like to get everyone's input on sharing music that is completely unobtainable to modern audiences, yet still protected by copyright laws. The case that applies to me personally is with a group called the Jordanaires. This group is most famous for being the vocal group for Elvis Presley, thus being a huge fan of his I wanted to explore their discography. Turns out just about nothing is available online. Only a few compilations were released in the digital age, confining the rest to rare and obscure vinyl releases from 1950 onward. I bit the bullet and bought a compilation from 1964 (The Church in the Wildwood). As an added bonus, this is one of those gimmick simulated stereo albums, which means the tracks were even more unique. I'm fairly certain I'm the first person to ever make a digital rip of this album. Not perfect mind you, but a little bit of noise reduction makes it listenable.
I've never really shared with the intent of archiving, but I do feel like this body of work by the Jordanaires is an important piece of the Elvis story (especially with songs he would later record himself). I've only previously tried YouTube, where the songs were auto-detected and the video was blocked. If possible, is there a safe and legal way to share this album rip?
