By "fix it" we mean:

If our old link goes dead then YOU go to Google Blog Search or Captain Crawl, type in the artist and album, and find us all a new working link. Then just copy/paste that new URL here in the comments so future visitors to this site can all see it. That's how we found the original link to begin with.
