I'll be damned

Looks like I've exceeded download capacity for the month, so I had to disable all tunes except the Wynona Carr one from today and the first ten or so (scroll wayyy down) until next Tues., Feb. 1.

From now on I think I can only host songs for a day or so at a time, which is what most music blogs do anyway, so check back often or you'll miss out. Thanks a lot for your patience; maybe in a few months I'll be able to afford more space.

In the meantime (and I hate to suggest anyone pay to download from a site other than eMusic) go to msn's music site where it looks like they have much of the Folkways and Smithsonian catalog available for sale now -- many rare titles for $8.91/ album download. There's a lot of really rad stuff there, from all of the Music from the South and various "Sounds of" records (the office, junk yard) to records like Negro Folk Music of Alabama, Vol. 2: Religious Music, and hundreds of ethnographic releases that, while of course it's much better to own them on vinyl, you'd spend years looking for. Um, though where's Sounds of Insects or the Harry Smith-recorded Kiowa Peyote Meeting? A major quibble is that the liner notes are not included and you cannot easily search solely through the Folkways catalog on the msn site but I guess you can just find everything first on the Folkways site, then search under the exact title.

Hey McGonigal,
