mp3 blog

If you go to the Wayback Machine — specifically here — around the years of 2000 – 2001, you’ll see that my pal and I hosted what would now be known as an mp3 blog. Yeah, we coded it all by hand almost every week, so it wasn’t a real blog, but the idea was the same.

I love mp3s, and love discovering new songs through blogs. Starting today I will be including mp3 content here fairly regularly. The usual disclaimers apply: i.e., music piracy for world domination or financial success is bad, turning people on to new music is good, screw the majors, mp3s posted here will not last forever, etc. etc.

Begin mp3 subplot —

Dan Bern did a month-long residency in San Francisco a month or so ago. I’m pretty sure that he wrote “Revolution Begins In The Basement” while he was there — just listen to all the SF references. And with his path crossing Chris Chandler‘s at the High Sierra Folk Festival on 4th of July weekend, it seems like a perfect vehicle for collaboration.

  1. Thanks-o-rama for putting this up. I kinda jotted it down on a scrap piece of paper at a festival in CA then lost it. I just did a show with Dan Bern, he asked me about the piece – hell I didn’t remeber it. Then I thought – there are herds of dedicated, talented tapers at Dan Bern shows – maybe one of them put this piece up on line. ta da. It was here, I was able to write it out again, and reprise it for a string of dates in the midwest.

  2. thank you for making this available. I wrote it at the high sierra festival – and then tossed it out. A few months past and I found myself doing a gig with dan – he wanted to do that number and well… i didn’t have it any more – i did a google search and found this site. I should have known one of you fabulous tapers out there would have put this up. thanks o rama!
