Live Musician Central Weekend Album Picks 7-19-08

   Here are this weeks album picks. Here at Live Musician Central I focus primarily on new releases but I also include some fun stuff and a few personal favorites.

   The new releases are intended to keep you on top of what’s happening in the music industry. A lot of the new releases here are the albums pushed the hardest by the industry. This helps your band in several ways. You can listen to what types of music the industry is pushing the hardest and see how your band compares. It also helps your cover band by giving you a selection of new music to learn that is going to be heavily marketed. That should translate into more people being familiar with this music at your gigs. So even if you decide to simply play it on your iPod you’ll have some familiar music for your audience.

Live Musician Central – Weekend Album Picks 6-20-2008

   This week we’re featuring top new albums from amazon.com. I’ve got a lot of MP3 players that don’t like iTunes aac format. My cell phone, Zune, Samsung and iRiver devices all work perfectly with the MP3’s. So when you download from Amazon, you get MP3 format music. You can also get incredible deals on full albums. For instance you can download all 13 songs of Robert Plant and Alison Kraus – Raising Sand for $5.00 . Now that’s hard to beat anywhere and it’s all DRM free. Not only that but it’s in 256 kbps format. I definitely think Amazon’s MP3 format downloads are worth a look at.                      Continue reading “Live Musician Central – Weekend Album Picks 6-20-2008”
