Just signed up for emusic.com. US $10 per month for unlimited download of some excellent artists, encoded as decent MP3s.
Here’s a sampling of what I’ve downloaded so far:
- The Dickies
- The Fall
- Ewan MacColl
- Jah Wobble
- James Taylor Quartet
- Daniel Johnston
- Holy Modal Rounders
- Wesley Willis
- Boards Of Canada
- Perez Prado Orchestra
- Young Fresh Fellows
- Mayor McCA
- Yo La Tengo
- Dressy Bessy
- The Fugs
- Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan
Maybe I don’t like them all, but at least I haven’t paid extra to find that out.
Okay, so I got a $20 the other day in Scarborough inscribed with
See Where I’ve Been… Track it online… www.whereswilly.com. Seems I’m the second-last person on the continent to hear about this little diversion for tracking paper currency. Shame about the name, though.
