I’ve just had word in a newsletter that Sain (Records) (www.sainwales.com) have opened up some of their content on a Creative Commons open licence, in order to share with a wider audience. Over 7,000 audio clips and 498 album covers are now available on the Wikimedia Commons website. The files are on an Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported (CC BY-SA 3.0) licence, which means that they can be shared as long as appropriate credit is given to Sain (Records), and the user provides a link to the licence, and indicate if changes were made. If shared further then they must be distributed under the same licence.
Although each audio track is only 30 seconds duration, they might be of use to anyone wanting to use them (under the licence conditions) on their websites, blogs, or whatever, or for anyone who just wants to get a taste of what a particular band/artist sounds like.
Here’s the link to the first page - https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Audio_files_by_Sain_(Records)_Ltd
