The Internet might be killing the record industry... but it ain’t killing music.
Let me ask: Is music a bigger part of your life now than before you were online? It sure is for me. Whole new worlds have opened up.
Just recently I stumbled on Pinetop Perkins, a 94-year-old blues musician who’s been performing since 1926.
He often jammed on the legendary “King Biscuit Time” radio show in the 1940s. He was in the Muddy Waters band during the ’70s.
And Mr. Perkins is still playing. Matter fact, he played last night at the Blues Masters at the Crossroads festival in Salina, Kansas.
You wanna download a FREE MP3 by Pinetop Perkins?
Give it a listen first; click here and spin “Pinetop’s New Boogie Woogie” on my Vox site. This track – a romping duet with Marcia Ball – is from Pinetop’s 2004 CD, “Ladies Man.”
Follow this link to Blue Mountain Artists and scroll down; you’ll see “Pinetop’s New Boogie Woogie” as one of two “MP3 Sample Tracks.” The other is “Since I Lost My Baby,” sung by Susan Tedeschi, also from the “Ladies Man” album.
Both are yours for the taking.
