Y’all know how this works: Click here and listen to the audio track. If you can name that band, and you’re the first person to put the band’s name in the comments section of this thread, you will receive a cool prize.
The prize is a book I mentioned on Friday: Tim Brooks’s “Lost Sounds: Blacks and the Birth of the Recording Industry, 1890-1919.” The paperback is 800 pages of delicious yet little-known pop culture history.
UPDATE (07/20/07): No winner this time. The band is 8 Bold Souls out of Chicago, led by Edward Wilkerson, Jr.
The track is “Brown Town,” from the 2000 CD “Last Option.” It’s available through iTunes.
