How about looking at it this way?

When you give your source as a person or group, you are paying a small tribute and acknowledging your place in a string of transmission. You are repaying a debt of gratitude, as it were. You want your audience to hear that person's name to keep the memory alive. If they like what they hear maybe they'll ask you where they can get more.
