A free Michael Franti & Spearhead download

I suppose I should like Michael Franti’s music. He is eclectic in his groove-mindedness, he’s lyrically intelligent and politically serious.

But to be quite honest... meh.

Whenever I choose to blog about Michael Franti – as I did last August – it’s with hope that some readers enjoy him a lot more than I do.

Somebody must. He’s been putting out albums for 20 years.

Franti’s got a new Spearhead CD – “All Rebel Rockers” – coming out next month. It was recorded in Jamaica. One track is available now as a FREE MP3.

I'm huge Franti fan. Stay Human and Chocolate Supa Highway are great albums.

I'm with you again. Ditto to everything. Thought I'd like him, but nope. I tried. You are dead on it once again. (Now if I can just get you to admit that "Miss You" is not funk...) :-)

LOL. I like that"Hole in the Bucket" song. But I understand wanting to like him more and instead feeling, "meh."
