I’ve been a subscriber at the MP3 retail site eMusic.com since 2001. And for most of that time, eMusic did not offer major-label albums.
So I downloaded mainly jazz. Lots of ’50s and ’60s jazz. Several thousand tracks. If I wanted major-label stuff, I copped from iTunes or Amazon.
Well... in recent months eMusic has struck deals with Sony and Warner Bros. to distribute their back catalogues. Now I’ve been on a renewed binge of MP3 shopping.
Matter fact, I’m getting back into my funk bag. Hereupon, a few of my latest eMusic downloads for your streaming enjoyment:
1. “Loose Booty” (alternate version) – Sly & the Family Stone
2. “Heartbeat” – War
3. “Mind Over Matter (Pts. 1 & 2)” – The Isley Brothers
4. “Celestial Blues” – Andy Bey
5. “To Sir With Love” – Chaka Khan
