The Archive is 10 (and a half) (01 Nov 02)
Happy anniversary to us. The oldest file we can find in the archive is from June 12, 1992. The archive pre-dates internet porn, Amazon, E-Bay, every newspaper (and record publisher), spam and Google. It pre-dates the web.
The Lyrics Archive R.I.P. (02 Oct 01)
The lyrics archive, which began a long time ago (i.e. pre 1990) at ftp.uwp.edu (the university of wisconsin, parkside) and was taken up at lyrics.ch has been removed entirely. lyrics.ch was threatened by HFA a few years ago and was working with them on a new site, songfile.com, which has now, without explanation, removed all the lyric files.
