The latest trend in music? Finding old stuff that was overlooked the first time round and making it popular – if only I knew an artist worthy of such treatment…

I never knew this, but one of the latest trends in music is trying to find old stuff that wasn’t very popular when it was new. I read about this over on MBW, with a company called Karousel Music making its money out of doing this.

It’s a bit like the Antiques Roadshow on the BBC. It happens occasionally – someone brings an item along thinking it’s not worth much money, but is then gobsmacked when they get the valuation which is beyond their wildest dreams.
