“Digital Archeology” to Unearth Lost Gems

Gee, look how long it took a record company to connect the dots on this one. Universal Music Group has started a project (they’ve dubbed “digital archeology”) to assemble 100,000 downloadable songs from artists whose work is currently unavailable on CD. Artists include ’60s psychedelic bands, Marianne Faithfull, Fairport Convention, and (gulp) Englebert Humperdink.
