DEAD LINKS

NOTE : DEAD LINKS
We'd like to thank everyone for preventing us of dead links. For the moment, we are note able to re-up them.

Feel free to keep on preventing us of those dead links. We will update them when we (I and Jeb-E-Diah) have more time to (understand : from september). Some of them will be partially or completely repacked considering albums which would have been issued thereafter and surely with new and improved artworks.

Stay tuned !

THE END (VAC #048)


VARIOUS ARTISTS
T H EE N D

And now it’s time to say goodbye.
For two and a half years, we have been working on a project to compile as many bands as we could and do it the best that we could. It's been fun if a little time consuming. Washed up and tired, we have decided to call it quits while we were still enjoying it.
Maybe someday will we return and take things where we left it. Maybe this final chapter of the Baistophe adventure will indeed be the end. Anyway, we'd like to thank all those who visited, commented, helped with their own compilations, etc. Without them, we would have created a lesser blog.
The End?

Thank you so much for everything you have done in anthologising many bands that are obscure or have just been forgotten.

I've enjoyed your work for a longtime and I'm sad to see you go. :(

I just discovered this blog and have been turned on to a lot of new (to me) styles of music. Thank you.

kingpossum said...

Bless you and thank you for all the great work! Baistophe was always inspired, inspiring and first rate.

Baistophe introduced me to many fine artists I would not have encountered otherwise.

Be well,

Jeff Gee said...

That's for everything! You opened my ears to all kinds of things I never imagined.

Je suis tres decu, de lire que c'est la fin...
I loved your compilations very much and even considered to participate with one or the other artist.
Malheureusement j'ai jamais trouvee le temps de mettre quelque choose.
Nethertheless, good luck et mes melieures veux poru vous!

First of all, thanks to all who felt like leaving a comment.

Then, let me tell you one thing: I'm not sure if it's really the end or just a temporary pause in Baistophe's life. One thing's for sure, it became so addictive and brain consuming that I had trouble listening to a band without thinking of how I would "baistophe" it, what kind of artwork would be fitting, etc.

It kind of became an addiction and I had to sober from it.

That said, I might feel the urge to return like all addicts do but I don't know when or if it'll happen.

Thanks again to all those who commented, participed to this adventure, it has been fun.

Your blog is one of the most worthwile and inspiring blogs on the net. I can see how it can take over your life. And taking some time off from it will surely be a good thing.
I'll keep it as a favourite for at least one more year.

You were/are absolutely brilliant. A consummation of everything the sharing world aspires to. You re-animated older artists catalogs and introduced newer artists with genuine zeal - all in a classy and personal way. If the majors had any sense they would produce the same with links to back catalogs for purchase/download. For more than 2 years you have been a top 5 web-stop for me - you and your passion and commitment will be missed.
Thanks for the share!

Sorry to see you go, but glad to have had a chance to share your fine taste. Thanks and hope to hear from you again.

Muchas gracias. Es lástima, pero nada acaba necesariamente del todo. Ánimo.

Thanks for all the work that went into all the posts.
For me, nothing could ever top those Floyd baistophes. The best.

see you later...(we hope)

admin said...

Thanks a lot for all the good times. I want to think this is not a definitive goodbye, so i'll keep you in my follow list, waiting for you come back. It's true that you work here is very hard and you deserve a well earned rest. So see you soon!

Thanks . I've enjoyed your posts especially for the ones I was not familiar with musically, but I had heard of them. I really enjoyed a couple which I have on vinyl and as I am in the car a lot I found these fantastic. They were magazine & xtc. Good Luck and again thanks for putting in the hard yards I really appreciate it.

I am so grateful for all the hard work you put into these superb compilations. I only wish I'd have discovered this place sooner! Someone just told me about it a couple of weeks ago!
Thanks for all the great collections. A lot of it, I already own, and now I plan to buy some other artists I heard for the first time, here.
I hope you return to posting your collections some day. But if not, thank you for all you've done.
