eMusic AUGUST: Beating the New System
Last month began the new era at eMusic — where they got all those albums from Sony — and, by coincidence, they claim, nearly doubled the price of subscriptions. (See my rant about that HERE.) I found a way to beat the system.
* Travel in Your Mind by The Seeds. Tommy Trusnovic had this CD a few weeks ago when he helped me out on the Terrell’s Sound World Sky Saxon tribute. I was jealous, but happy to find out it was available on eMusic.
When Willie Nelson sang “I Couldn’t Believe it Was True” on Red Headed Stranger a few years later, I already was familiar with the song, thanks to Doc. And when I think of “Going Down The Road Feeling Bad,” I hear Doc Watson, not The Grateful Dead (or even Woody Guthrie!)
Indeed, to wax corny, the title of the last track, the lovely “Treasures Untold” sums up how I feel about this record.
Psychobilly Box (Disc 2) by various artists Here was another good bargain. I got 22 tracks for just two credits. A few months ago I downloaded the first disc. That was 22 tracks, so I just needed to spend two more for the entire second disc.
