Lyric Of The Week:
Sweetheart Like You by Bob Dylan
Free MP3 Download of the week:
You may not have heard of David Mansfield, but you've probably have heard his music. He was a member of Bob Dylan's Rolling Thunder Revue, worked with T-Bone Burnett in The Alpha Band, collaborated with Mark Heard on various projects, and was a member of Bruce Hornsby And The Range.
He has several free MP3 downloads on his website: give a listen to the lovely instrumental 'Bus Ride Jamboree' for a sample of Mr. Mansfield's fiddle stylings, then check out all his other downloads here.
I told you in an earlier Music Monday that you really should give a listen to streaming audio of four new online tracks from The House Of Love's new CD, but you were too busy, weren't you? Well, there's no time like the present, I say. Go to their record company's website, click on the 'audio' link, at the bottom of the screen, and give the band the next fifteen minutes of your life. I guarantee nothing, but I'm willing to bet you will wonder - as do I - why 'Gotta Be That Way,' isn't all over the radio. (If you really like what you hear, you can download the whole album from Apple's iTunes store.)
I don't have cable TV, plus I was busy all weekend, but The BM Rant blogged the Philly Live 8 show(s), so I wouldn't have to.
Remember Letters To Cleo?. Of course you do. So enjoy this live MP3 of 'Demon Rock,' from the band's own website.
If you've got anything remotely music-related that you'd like to see included in a future Music Monday, please send me an email, or comment. Thanks.
