Hi i am looking for compilation albums and singles charts with radio edits/clean versions of songs. my friend is playing music in his cafe and has to keep putting it off because of the swearing.help please. thanks
Anna, I'd advise your friend to buy retail versions. Basically because If a cafe plays any music even a radio or TV they need to have a Music license (It's a combined version of the old PPL and PRS licenses and came into effect in February). I believe Legally He can play a Backup copy of music he owns But if he gets inspected it's a massive fine. You can play music without a license but it must be Royalty free music.
If you have a good look on the GLODLS site there is a massive selection of music there but you'd have to filter out the explicit versions and maybe even compile your own compilations, The Now Albums are a good start as they are almost all clean edits. 50's to 80's Music is also 99% good, But of course depends on the demograph of his particular target audience, Are they mainly older clientelle who would enjoy older music with their afternoon teas, Is it more like a truckers cafe where they might appreciate a bit of rock music etc. Are they younger people who like a bit of Rap/Hip Hop and R&B (Which is a bit of a danger area for explicit lyrics).
