It seems that all albums added 28 Oct 2021 to 1 Nov 2021 to Unlocked Recordings or reportedly not access restricted in Long Playing Records (formerly Album Recordings) were not flipped from Samples Only. They are all restricted. What's up?

28 Oct: First report to Album Recordings collection
31 Oct: First report to Audio collection. Response from Jeff Kaplan.
2 Nov: updated to include additional days

I've also noticed some other albums that were uploaded throughout 2021 and were not access restricted in Long Playing Records became Samples Only in the past month or so.

Not sure what the rights management is like for the collections, but my guess would be that the curators are learning that some previously open items are rights protected. I've watched many of my favorites in Album Recordings (now called Long Playing) go from open to samples over the life of the collection.

If you have been keeping favorites in your profile, here is a quick filtered search to check for items that are now Samples Only. Enter your user name in place of USERNAME.

Just confirming and documenting that many of those uploads look to be only available as 30 second samples as of Jan 2, 2021. Must be a huge bug...

Jeff Kaplan has reported it is a bug and that the 28 Oct to 1 Nov files will be made available at some future point. Thank you so much!
