rhythm nation remixes

A list of 92 “Rhythm Nation”-related things you can’t buy, watch, or listen to legally in 2013

Janet Jackson’s Rhythm Nation 1814 album had seven singles, all of which hit the Top Five. The album received nine Grammy nominations. It was the best-selling album of 1990. It features on several prestigious “Best Albums” lists.

Its presence today is positively spectral.

Currently, the only pieces of art related to Rhythm Nation 1814 that you can buy on iTunes, watch on official YouTube channels, or listen to on Spotify or Rdio are the Rhythm Nation 1814 album and the individual videos for the seven singles.

Also worth noting that the album’s 25th anniversary is right around the corner and a comprehensive, remastered box set would be not only overdue, but quite appropriate. Hopefully there is someone left in the Universal Music monolith who remembers how much money this record made for them the first time around. #1814/2014

Below is a list of the things that were released during the album’s lifespan that you no longer have first-hand, legal access to in our Everything Is Available Everywhere All The Time connected world. Maybe you shouldn’t delete your iTunes library yet.

That we don’t have access to this stuff – the complementary material that accompanied one of the biggest albums of the last quarter-century – is shameful and is one of the biggest and most obvious failings of Cloud Culture. Labels: Stop leaving money on the table and give us a real Celestial Jukebox.

Meanwhile, have fun torrenting/Mediafiring this stuff, because trust me, it’s a perfect soundtrack for this holiday weekend.
