Emusic is really terrific. If you haven't signed up for the free songs, do it. Why wouldn't you? If you're going to sign up, do it through a friend so they get free songs too. Some of favorites have been Andrew Bird Armchair Apocrypha Spoon, Songs:ohia, GBV, White Stripes, yo la tengo Charles Dougla...

Here's a good quote from Reuters article you linked: "I'm a subscriber of eMusic, and I love it," says Rian Murphy, head of digital sales for Chicago-based Drag City, who says he has no plans to leave the service. So why's he messin' with me? He says: "But from the point of view of th...

I was more bummed when Drag City pulled out a few months ago. There was a lot more from Drag City that I was hoping to get. Way more than form Epitaph. But that's just me. I'm more of a sleazy hippie than an aging punk. Drag City's response at the time was that they couldn't justify paying their art...

I was at the record store and they had this on vinyl. So I got it. There's sticker on it that says there's information inside on how to download all the tracks from the Merge website. I haven't opened it yet, but it's an interesting idea that could get me to buy more vinyl. Vinyl buyers: Is there an...

Frank Black - Los Angeles
I wanna live in Los Angeles, not the one in Los Angeles

Neil Young - L.A.
This is from Time Fades Away so it's a little harder to track down, but I think Buddyhead was hosting tracks from TFA not too long ago. May still be there.

Some how I managed to forget about the Doucette song. I'm not sure what are regional hits anymore. That was defnitely on my list. I grew up around St. Louis. Were these "hits" all over or just regional? Children of the Sun - Billy Thorpe Driver's Seat - Sniff n the Tears Four Horsemen - Ap...

Sorry if these have been covered already... The Ramones - Leave Home But it has to be my original cassette version with Sheena is a Punk Rocker. The rerelease has Carbona Not Glue instead of Sheena and they've appended a totally unnecessary concert recording from the period. AC\DC - Highway to Hell ...

You may want to wait for the new one to come out. I heard they played a lot of their new material at that show. And if you get it on LP you're supposed to get some digital extras. But I also agree that Painful and Heart Beating as One are their best efforts and you'd probably enjoy the hell out of e...

Yeah, that's why I posted. I felt like we were in the same place. I've never listened to Julian Cope but he had some nice things to say: http://www.headheritage.co.uk/headguide/ and John Darnielle of the Mountain Goats has been posting brief and intense statements on I Love Music: http://ilx.wh3rd.n...

It's a little weird to bummed out that he's gone, but I am. I guess because he was never a public figure the news of his actual departure feels a little different. Like getting the news about a friend you lost touch with. My first exposure to Syd was the the Pink Floyd Works compilation with the sin...
