Here's the URL to Rory's albums on youtube, and it only lists a couple: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCokxZ1 ... 7244514301

It would be highly unlikely that his music would have a distribution deal for the US that included youtube but excluded spotify. If I had to guess, maybe you found a pirated version that somebody uploaded? In any case, like you say, his music is MIA on itunes and spotify :(.

You're right, the albums I see were uploaded by fans. I'm not very sophisticated when it comes to youtube, I just type in what I want to hear, and listen to what pops up. At least we still have these versions left, though. I think youtube is where most of us new fans found his music for the first time, it would be a real shame if it all disappeared.

Another month has gone by without any change, so it's looking like Rory's music disappearing from the US digital marketplace is not a temporary incident.

Yes this is very sad indeed. I used to have an account with itunes but I don't know what happened to it. I seem to have lost a lot of my music. I don't have an account with you tube either or I would upload some stuff (if someone showed me how to do it). However, there's still plenty of stuff on you tube. I personally would like to see more rare concert footage. I think it's great that people have made audio recordings of gigs they were at in the late 70s/80s. About spotify - when I was in Edinburgh in November a friend of mine's son downloaded spotify onto my cell phone and I was listening to the few RG albums and songs that were on there. When I got back home to Luxembourg it worked for about a week and then it wouldn't let me sign into my account anymore. Does anyone know what might have happened? I wonder if it was because I downloaded it in the UK? Very strange.

The only place I'm seeing that carries pretty much all of Rory's music is Amazon. I know it's a pain to have to wait for shipping, but at least it's still there. I hope iTunes does bring Rory back, but not holding out much hope in that area.

Thank goodness Jay Jay - I was beginning to feel hopeless about lack of access to the RG catalog here in the U.S.
Please send thanks to Donal from all of us 'mericans.. :)

Sadly, another year has gone by and Rory's catalog is still almost entirely missing from the digital marketplace in the US. If you look on iTunes, only a couple of albums are available. Same on Spotify. Is there any news on this?
