These days I have an Alesis Masterlink hooked up so I can record a stream from
I barely ever use it, but I can if I want to.
Recent captures include:
The Rolling Stones performing Dylan's "Watching the River Flow" with Bill Wyman
Almost 3 hours of interviews with Augustus Stanley Owsley III
I believe that my copying of these items is protected as long as it is for my
own personal enjoyment and/or research.
It's not that I want to "own" these recordings, but I just want to hear them
more than once.
In this day and age, wanting to hear something more than once is a big
accomplishment for an artist..
