Even though the music sections haven't been updated in YEARS, it is still a great site to discover spectacular artists.
I discovered Damon Bramblett and Propaghandi thanks to audiogalaxy.com
A now defunct file sharing system. Audiogalaxy was somewhat unique in that the user did not download a entire program to transfer files, but rather a small program called the "Satellite." Users went to the Audiogalaxy website and added files they wished to download by clicking on links. The requests were transferred to the "Satellite" for downloading at the earliest possible time. Transfers to and from users were anonymous, and the "Satellite" used very little memory and system resources. It became popular to let the "Satellite" run all night in hopes of getting those rare files that only a few people had.
I downloaded some pretty good stuff off of Audiogalaxy last week, then today I went and bought the CDs.
The file sharing program of your dreams, shut down by the RIAA in 2002. It was everything that kazaa
isn't. Small, convenient, and you could find absolutely ANYTHING on it. If a song was recorded somewhere, you could get it on AG. Many former AG users have gone to soulseek
I miss Audiogalaxy big time.
