In defiance of The Supreme Court's decision on Grokster/Streamcast, I bring you more MP3s.
I've decided that while I don't want to host an mp3 blog of my own - firstly because I don't have that much bandwidth to spare, secondly because I don't have enough mp3s to make it worthwhile, and lastly because I don't want to have to deal with potential copyright issues - I can still post links to other peoples' mp3 blogs from time to time, showcasing the music I really like and want to share. It also lets me make use of my new category system. Now, I won't link directly to the files, because I wouldn't want someone stealing my bandwidth like that. I'll link to the post and provide directions from there.
The first song I'm gonna link here is Cheap and Alive by The Sally Zito Project. They're a small California-based group with a good sound.
The next one you might want to give a listen is Old Man by Liz Wright. The blog post in question shows a head shot of this young bald hottie, and her remake of this Neil Young tune has a very slight African feel, due in part to the timbre of her voice. Very nice harmony.
Lastly, check out Ain't No Sunshine When She's Gone by Rahsaan Roland Kirk. Yes, another remake. But as the blog post points out, the late Roland Kirk was confined to a wheelchair, one half of his body paralyzed, and during his last concert, the man managed to play three saxophones at once. The first time I listened to the song, I could've sworn that it was Ian Anderson on the flute.
And in a last minute find, I've found Ella Fitzgerald covering Sunshine of Your Love!
EDIT: Since I last checked, the Roland Kirk track link has gone dead. You can still listen to the first few seconds of it here if you scroll down though.
