Off topic a little, but maybe not...
I found a website http://grown-so-ugly.blogspot.com/ that features
out-of-print and private press and psych/drug/folk of the type that will
appeal to many Jandek fans, and the complete albums are all posted as
.ZIP files for anybody to download.  I've been working my way through
the loner folk recordings from the 1970s that he's been featuring and
some, like the Gary Higgins album "Red Hash" are excellent. 
He also posts complete .ZIP files of more current of the freak folk/new
weird america/trance folk and also some more rocking freakout and
foreign music for all to download, and his policy is that once something
comes back in print he removes the .ZIP files. 
If you're like me you've devoured books on non-mainstream artists, and
I've always wished there were a source for Private Press records.  Some
are being reissued nowadays, but some are just flat-out too bizarre.
This person really knows his stuff about obscure musics.  All the way
from out of print Fahey/Takoma/Basho acoustic guitar discs to French
psychedelic hard rock to records recorded by musical communes to downer
suicidal loner folk that makes you imagine the singers were one step
from the ledge to records that even LOOK like Jandek records. 
If this is too off-topic then feel free not to respond in this Jandek
Forum, and I really don't want to turn this into a discussion of the
ethics of downloading free music, but all along I've been thinking that
there are many on this Jandek list who are always looking for stuff that
is waaaaay out of the mainstream, so here is a good source.
