This is an unofficial group in the spirit of the Vintage Obscura sub-reddit, which celebrates the best obscure music from 1900-1993.
This group is for those of us who crate dig for sampling purposes, fans of great music that has been forgotten or previously overlooked. This group is also for the music archivists, who make a point to collect and celebrate obscure releases, lest they be forgotten.
Ultimately this group is to celebrate music that is both obscure and amazing.
I'd also like this group to serve as trading post for buying, selling and trading the kind of music that would be posted on /r/vintageobscura.
I'd also like to encourage discussion of the music, the musicians, the technical aspects of our finds, and uncover the stories behind these releases, as their origins are often not documented online.
Perhaps crate digging tips can be shared as well! Lets go nuts and geek out about this stuff!
The criteria for Vintage Obscura music, as stated on the sub-reddit rules is as follows:
Is it obscure?
Is it amazing?
Is it at least 25 years old (1900 - 1993)
Under 30k views on YouTube and related videos by the same artist. Under 50k listeners on Last.fm
For this group, i'd like to use those as guidelines and not hard and fast rules. This group can be many things, so lets figure out what we want it to be as we go!
