    Hey, I am looking for cassettes, Cds from the midsouth boys from back in the late 80's early 90's...

    They sang, Sin Met Grace, Down by the Tabernacle, That's my Child, ...

    Then they changed around 94.
    and then broke up about 98.

    But I loved to sing those older songs from them.

    And I lost all my tapes in a flood in 97..
    So if anyone knows where I can get some, or if you have them and would be willing to part with them for a price, let me know.

    I have watched Ebay for about a year, and only their newest stuff shows up... (94-98)

    Thanks for your help...

    I loved those guys and have gone the ebay route, myself.

    The only copies I found through ebay and amazon go for forty dollars or more. I like them, but that just wasn't worth it.

    I wish you luck, though.

    Speaking of which, there was another group a little earlier than them who tried to incorporate a contemporary country sound (which at that time would be the Oak Ridge Boys and such).

    I remeber that I had a cassette of theirs that had two songs: "I Saw You Last Night in the Arms of My Best Friend" (it wasn't a cheating song. he walks in and finds his wife praying), and "Please Let Me Sing in the Choir" (about an old man who wants to sing in the church choir, but can't sing, then dies and the scene shifts to him singing in the "heavenly choir").

    That's all I remember. I'd be really curious to know who that was.

    If anybody knows who I'm talking about, please, speak up.

    I actually don't have the cassettes and cd's anymore. I have them all on my pc in mp3 format. A friend had given me his collection of many of the old groups.

    But they are the complete albums.

    Cassettes are slowly phasing out as did the 8-tracks before them.

    I probably will burn me the cassette recordings to cd for a hard copy back-up.

    We shared our first kiss after rehearsing "City lights'

    Tim,

    I would offer to burn them to cd for you, but not sure if that would be legal.

    Yeah, I know... would it be since it is impossible to buy one from them... I would buy one from them if it were possible, but it is impossible...
    I don't know enough about copyright laws when it comes to this situation...

    in cases like this i like to be better safe than sorry...

    I will check into it. If it is impossible to buy the old cd's anymore, would they still fall under copyright?

    While surfing, I ran across this article:

    It’s surprising to me that the Mercury News has accepted the record labels’ terminology in this matter. Piracy refers to making unauthorized reproductions of digital media for financial gain — or, stretching the term, for indiscriminate distribution. It is not piracy — “casual” or otherwise — when you buy music and make a few copies for close friends.
    As Jessica Litman, author of “Digital Copyright,” writes in her law review article “War Stories,” 20 Cardozo Arts & Entertainment Law
    Journal 337 (2002):
    Under the old way of thinking about things, copying your CD and carrying the copy around with you to play in your car, in your Walkman, or in your cassette deck at work is legal. Borrowing a music CD and making a copy on some other medium for your personal use is legal. Recording music from the radio; maxing different recorded tracks for a ‘party tape,’ and making a copy of one of your CDs for your next-door neighbor are, similarly, all lawful acts. The copyright law says so: section 1008 of the copyright statute provides that consumers may make non-commercial copies of recorded music without liability. Many people seem not to know this any more.

    It would appear that copying old cassettes to pass out to others is perfectly legal.

    3.7) Can I legally make a cassette copy of a musical CD for my own use,
    so I can play it in my car?

    This issue has been argued back and forth for many years, with consumers
    groups arguing that this was a fair use (see sections 2.8 and 2.9), and
    the recording industry arguing that it was not. The issue was finally
    settled by Congress when the Audio Home Recording Act (AHRA) (P.L. 102-
    563, 106 Stat. 4237, codified at 17 U.S.C. 1001 - 1010) was passed in
    October 1992. This Act added ten sections to Title 17, one of which
    provided an alternative to the fair use analysis for musical recordings.
    The new section states:

    No action may be brought under this title alleging infringement
    of copyright based on the manufacture, importation, or
    distribution of a digital audio recording device, a digital
    audio recording medium, an analog recording device, or an
    analog recording medium, or based on the noncommercial use by a
    consumer of such a device or medium for making digital musical
    recordings or analog musical recordings.

    17 U.S.C. 1008.

    As the legislative history to this statute noted, "In short, the reported
    legislation would clearly establish that consumers cannot be sued for
    making analog or digital audio copies for private noncommercial use."
    H.R. Rep. 102-780(I).

    Does this mean you can make copies for your family and friends, as long
    as it's not "commercial?" A strict reading of the words in the statute
    would seem to say that you may. This is not as outrageous as it sounds.
    Part of the impetus behind the AHRA was the perception that blank tapes
    were being used mostly to copy commercial musical sound recordings. As a
    result, the AHRA provided that a royalty payment (referred to as a "DAT
    tax" by its detractors) be paid for each sale of digital audio tape to
    compensate authors of musical works and sound recordings for the profits
    lost due to these copies. See 17 U.S.C. 1003, 1004. Arguably, the AHRA
    anticipates and allows exactly this type of copying, and a literal
    reading of section 1008 would tend to support this position. But the
    AHRA is still sufficiently new this hasn't been tested in court yet.

    Note, also, that this section applies only to musical recordings; it
    clearly does not include spoken word recordings. Of course, it is still
    possible that such a use of a spoken word recording might still be
    considered a section 107 fair use (see sections 2.8 and 2.9), even though
    section 1008 does not apply to provide a clear exemption.

    Thanks, but I remembered right after I posted that.

    It wasn't the Dixie Melody Boys, but the Mercy River Boys.

    All those "Boys" get confusing after a while.
