TunesDay ALERT: Jeffrey Dean Foster at CD Baby – the best $10 you'll spend this week

I just tripped over this at Jeffrey Dean Foster’s FB page:

Until August 3rd CDBaby is selling JDF’s Million Star Hotel and The Pinetops’ Above Ground and Vertical for only $5.00 each for the digital download. Plus they are not taking any percentage of the sale. So get them while they are cheap and help out the artist.

If you don’t have these CDs, this offer is just next to stealing. Million Star Hotel is, in my view, one of the great albums of our generation even though most of you have never heard of it. I know, I know – if you’ve never heard of JDF, how can such a grandiose pronouncement possibly be true? It’s just hyperbole, right?

Because your experience with the music industry is that the best stuff is always on the radio and in the popular press? Really?

When it was released, one critic suggested that had MSH been released in the 1970s it would have been Born to Run, and I’m inclined to agree. It’s just that good. And The Pinetops, Foster’s previous band, were fantastic, as well.

This is awesome stuff. GO. BUY. THESE. CDs. NOW.

Here’s a sample – maybe one of my four or five favorite songs of the past 20 years.
