FAREWELL




FAREWELL

I am closing the Butterboy blog. 

When I first started this blog I only posted Butterboy Compilations. After time I received requests to post other various artists compilations / artist compilations, which became a popular daily exploration into many types of music. I also introduced the Crates which gave the opportunity for another dip in the the vaults. I have tried to make an interesting and fun experience. I have enjoyed sharing my collection. Your visits now range from 7500 - 9500 per day, so its popular. but all my files are being targeted which is really baffling.

You will have noticed that recently many Zippy files continue to be deleted. I expect they will all be gone in a few weeks. It appears the site has become too popular and has outlived its welcome or worse. This is so disappointing and I can't keep up with the effort required. So before it is shut down or all links removed I have made the decision to stop the blog myself for the near future. I will try to work out a better way for posting in the future. The files that are working here will remain and I hope you still find new music to listen to from them.


I want to thank each and every one of you who has supported the blog for the last few years and  I hope you enjoyed yourselves picking through whatever was offered.

I have appreciated your kind and generous feedback and comments which made the job of keeping the blog going all that more enjoyable. I have made a number of like minded musical friends from this experience and I am truly grateful for that. But now is the right time for me to stop.


You may see me pop up in the usual places from time to time but for now, my friends, it is farewell.Thanks again to all of you. I've had fun and I will miss you all.

Listen to the music and enjoy life and all that you do.

Cheers,
Butterboy

  2. While completely understand, I will miss your Blog immensely. You have help3e me discover myriad new artists and bands. In this music lover's book there aren't any greater gifts. Drop in sometimes at ello.com and look me up.

  4. Oh no! I've only recently come across your blog and I have been astounded by the wealth of fantastic music you're sharing, not to mention your incredible knowledge of so many different genres.
    Thanks for all you've done and I hope I stumble upon your next venture one day....

  5. BB, say it ain't so! It's more work and headaches than I would care to endure, but I am grateful for your considerable efforts.

    Ave atque vale, as the saying goes. You done a good job, Butter.

  8. Thanks to you I have an external hard drive stuffed and just about groaning with all the fine music you have provided. Good luck, Butters!

  9. Damn. And so goes one of the most amazing music blogs on the internet. Thank you so much for the astounding quality, variety and generosity you brought to this incredible musical wonderland. All of your posts were deep and enlightening, the depth and breadth, the many areas to explore. This was a master class of music appreciation. I even love the original album art you came up with, those were all great. You're a hero and a legend, my friend. Thank you for everything.

    I would also urge anyone reading this who has their own music blogs, to repost Butterboy's creations from time to time. Give him credit for his work, and let's keep these great collections circulating for fans to enjoy!

  17. Man...the end of an era!!! I only recently stumbled onto the great Butterboy blog and I have been playing catch up ever since. You are very obviously a music lover because your comps are consistently crafted in a way that is just oh so rare. It is really a shame that you must now symbolize the effects of a social tension that may overwhelm everything about music. It's bad enough to not know how good we've had it with a site like this one. Ironically, now everyone will realize that we all take things for granted and this void will not be easily filled. Someone has excessive resentment about them to want to destroy all of your hard work and your overt generosity. You are a workaholic and you might have wanted to take a break...but you are a rare individual who the world could use more of. Your absence will be like the loudest silence ever heard. Just know that we are with you wherever you go. To try and thank you with mere words might cheapen all that you've given...so, realize the greatest gift is GIVING!!! We love you, Butterboy. Thank you.

  21. hi Butter.
    Bad news to go with my morning coffee.
    As a blogger I have always admitted your work, which I imagine will take up most of the day.
    Blogs are very complicated. Publishing "official" albums is always a danger and you are exposed to closure. I also think that there are already many blogs that are dedicated to these posts.
    In my blog I publish few official things and I always look for things that are difficult to achieve, with a minimum of twenty years old and if they have never been published on CD better. Still I have had blogger shutdown threats.
    Ziippyshare has long since stopped being a good site.
    A good way out is to go back to the beginning and publish only "private comps".
    I hope these words serve you and thank you again for your work.
    Jose

    1. Thank you Jose,
      What you say makes a lot of sense. This was my first blog and as such I learn every day.

      How do you create a private Blog and know that who visits is a legitimate music lover.

      FYI. My self made compilations have also been targeted. I also received three shut down notices on Blogger for removal of a particular Album. Apparently from Warner.

      I also created files in pixeldrain and so far only my self made compilations have had the links deleted.

      I will start again one day when i have a better way of sharing identified.

      Once again I appreciate you kind words and suggestions. Stay safe and enjoy life.

      Cheers

    2. Hi butterboy
      Regarding the "Private Blogs" I have never liked, I think the mission of blogs is to spread, and I have never liked the groups of "Chosen".
      Zippyshare, has a way of doing that, in case of any complaint, it deletes files at random, it has happened to me many times, sometime, in the last six months, pixeldrain, it should do the same.
      Regarding the deletion of blogs, I have seen friend blogs deleted, but I have always wondered why sites like "Twilightzone" or "Rockasteria", which publish a lot of things, are kept safe.
      Regarding the "official records", I think there are already too many places to get them, also I think you have to let the record labels do their job and try not to interfere with it. I think that publishing albums by Byrds, Dylan, Springsteen ... do not add anything to the public, because there are many places to get them: other blogs, deezer, youtube, spotifive, etc.
      That's why I think that when publishing one of those albums, you have to look at various things. First, that the label is active, that its publication is not very recent, if it has never been on CD, it is better.
      An example: the album "come join my orchestra" is the best that has been published in the last two years, I would never publish it, and it is in the style of my blog, you also have to let the record company, which has made its work to put together all these songs has its benefit.
      If you want to continue sharing music, I think a good solution is to create a new blog, to eliminate the old ghosts and link it from the one you now have so that people can find it.
      And as for what you post, I have given you my opinions, take what works for you.
      For anything you can count on me
      Jose

    Once the B******s started targeting your Crates, it put you on a shoogly peg.
    I'll miss the Butterboy Compilations as a have a few in my car and I have picked up on some artists that I wasn't aware of and gone out and BOUGHT their albums.
    All the best in the future.

    Sorry to hear about your decision to pack it in. It is sad when the internet gives anonymous people the power to do things like that. Hope you take a break and rethink the future.

  75. 2020 has been a very negative year for me, loss, Covid, etc. and this just one more.
    I wish you well BB. During these hard times you brought some light into peoples lives.
    You created a unique and fun site, one to visit daily. I learned a lot from you and was introduced to some amazing music. You crossed all genres and styles. Such a disturbing thought to think someone out there would want to sabotage this. as someone once sang..."the world is a vampire"
    I can only hope you reconsider and think of an alternative way to combat this and stay put.
    Respect and thanks,

  87. It's a bleedin' shame you feel you've got to shut the doors Butter . . . your site was a daily stopping point and almost all of your compilations have been added to my library with pride. I won't pretend to know all the ins and outs about running a blog site but I'm sure it's time consuming and less than a joy some days. You will be sorely missed sir . . .

    ReplyDelete

  98. Sorry that you need to stop the great music from coming our way, who ever is doing the wrong thing I would say it would be the music companies that when you give up they have got their way, thanks for the great music and let me know if you change your mind I understand if you never do it again.

    ReplyDelete
  99. Oh, BB, I am so sad to see you step away, although I understand the why. It's really disappointing to discover that there are people trying to take the piss and get you shut down. I've really enjoyed what you've turned me onto over the last year +; your shares have led me to purchase records I would have otherwise never experienced.

  105. Sorry to see you go, but understand your reason. You brought a great deal of musical enjoyment to a great deal of people around the world. You should be proud.

    The point of music, is to make people feel less lonely.
    You have succeeded in making that happen.
    See ya down the road - stay safe and keep listening

    ReplyDelete
  106. Butter, I can't say it better than well over a hundred of your friends here have said already. Yet still I say it: thank you for all you've shared, all you've suggested and recommended, and all the great doors and windows you've opened for me... and for more people than the numbers here even suggest.

    The internet, and the world of shared music, is much poorer for your stepping back from it - and I cheer you through the tears: stick with something so long as it is fun, which has been your daily litmus test. Some things, of course, must be seen to, regardless of any element of fun... but - as Glenn Holland says in "Mr. Holland's Opus" - "music is supposed to be fun" (https://youtu.be/g5F7-BSW8pQ). And so it should be.

    You still have your music, of course, and your art, and family, and far jaunts... and now more time for them, and for more things yet. I look forward to the welcome surprise of regularly bumping into you here and there on the net after this, and I thank you again for how you've enriched me, just one among a great crowd. Continue being yourself, and lead on just so!

    Warmest,
    A. Gene Childe

  109. Hey Butterboy,

    I recall when you first surfaced on TWZ and then opened this blog up. Thanks for all the great posts and hopefully you can come up with a new format to share your music some time down the line. Maybe a 'less is more' approach might be more manageable?

    ReplyDelete
  110. Butterboy, thank you so much for all your phenomenal compilations, I really appreciate all the hard work you put into them. I sincerely hope you resurface again in the near future with more gems. I have been constantly amazed by how many 'common notes' you managed to hit with my own musical tastes. You will be missed.

    ReplyDelete
  111. Just wanted to say thank you BB for all of the beautiful comps you put together and all the wonderful music that you so selflessly shared. I discovered a lot of music that I had never before heard thanks to you. Stay safe and hope to see you around sometime in the near future.

  114. Hello BB, for a long time your blog (with TZ) was important to visit whenever I could. Found lots of music that I didn't knew and that I'd never heard of. Both blogs were something special to my ears, and now one is gone. Thanks for all your work, your own comps and anything else. Thanks for your time that you gave for us. Music will remember me, that it was you, who brought a lot of it into my life.
    I understand that sometimes we all have to change something in our life, I wish you all the best, hope to find you here and there in the whole wide web, thanks again for all you've done, care for yourself and stay healthy, bye bye BB. I'm gonna miss you.

Too sad that this must now happen to your unique and extremely generous blog, Mr. B. Thank you one last time for everything: for all the gifts, the surprises and for the many new perspectives! Keep the faith. TC

  130. Mr. B, thanks so much for the great shares you have provided.
    They introduced me to a lot of great music and increased my palate.
    It is saddening that circumstances forced this shutdown, but I understand
    your need for doing so.
    You deserve much respect for your efforts and I thank you kindly.
    You are a credit to the Internet and I wish you well in future endeavors!
    Stay safe and do what your heart desires!!
    Much respect, Steemer

  139. Very disappointed to hear you are shutting up shop. In the short period I was aware of your blog I was amazed and grateful for the compilations you provided, and the time it must have taken to compile them.
    Like a lot of other people, I probably didn't thank you enough in the comments, taking the work you do for granted. So thank you for the great compilations you provided. The one's you personally compiled were always the best ones.
    Like other great blogs from the past, people will only realise how good it was when it's gone.

  142. Gosh, I don't know what to say that hasn't already been said. Your generosity has touched so many lives. It'ssad that someone tries to destroy something special. Many blogs have been targeted. I sincerely hope you find a way to continue sharing music somewhere. Thanks for everything you shared over the last few years. May you prosper in all your endeavors. Peace be with you!

  148. Just learning of this today - three minutes ago, in fact.

    BB, I'm far too grateful to you for the spectacular work you've done cataloging this great art form for God knows how many tens of thousands of music lovers who - were it not for you - might never have encountered so much of this timeless and magnificent music.

    I'd love for you to come back one day but I'm not that selfish that I'd try to twist your arm with any pleading. The depth and breadth of my own musical knowledge would not be remotely what it is without your tireless efforts to educate and entertain. A million thanks for everything you did; may the Man Upstairs always be watching over you and yours, my friend.

    Hail and farewell!

  150. I think jose kortozirkuito (August 28, 2020) said the gist, and I completely agree with him.
    I really liked your blog and especially your own compilations, I'm really sad that you stopped.
    Take care. Thanks for your blog!

    2. Hey, there you are. I smiled. But, I was kinda a late bloomer to this site. Had no idea what TZ is. But I see a link in the comments further up. I'm on my way. Thanks.

  156. Hi. I am sitting in the smoky and (finally) rainy Pacific Northwest, working on my taxes. While doing so, I've been listening to your "Best Instrumental Blues" compilation, and have found that it fits the occasion very well. Thanks again for the great sounds!

    Cheers,
    Mike M

  157. Hey BB. Hope you are well. Like many others I drop by here from time to time for a visit. I've been making compilations for a few years now for my own listening pleasure but always love listening to what others put together. Your site inspired me to start sharing my own compilations at my new blog. If people like the ones I've posted then I will add more. Play your ones often. All the best.

  160. I wondered why so many of your offerings were expired. Maybe Zippyshare is unhappy with all you offer. I did get quite a bit of GOOD stuff from you. Thank you for ALL your hard work. I can't blame you , maintaining this much music is a lot of work. Take care. It was great while it lasted. Get a good rest you earned it!!
