If gas prices and the housing market have put you in the mood for the blues, the last thing you need to do is go buy a CD of the stuff to get your fix. Happily, Amazon.com is offering free blues downloads to celebrate Black History Month:
Check back every week in June for new free songs from both legendary and new artists from the Concord music roster. This week, we have some terrific blues downloads from greats like Lightnin' Hopkins, Albert King and Odetta. If you like the free songs, shop Amazon MP3 for their albums and discover over 5 million songs, all of which will play on virtually anything that plays MP3s, including iPods®, Zunes®, Zens®, iPhones®, RAZRs®, and BlackBerrys®.
Right now they have stuff from Roosevelt Sykes, Lightnin' Hopkins, and Albert King.
