Gillian Welch, Revival - $1.99
Folks, don’t even think twice about this one. If you are a country fan and don’t own Gillian Welch’s wonderful, rootsy debut album, you have no excuse for not clicking the box below and dropping 2 bucks on it. Don’t just take my word for it: listen to the clips and hear for yourself. Entertainment Weekly writer Chris Willman recently named Revival one of the “25 Country Albums You Need to Hear (Even if You Hate Country Music)”, if you need yet another opinion. Unless you’re worried about your little expenses adding up or you don’t like MP3s, you really have nothing to lose and much to potentially gain at this price. But the deal is only good today, so get going!
Buying instructions: click on the big “Play” symbol to play the clips. When they start playing, a little box with information about the track will appear at the bottom of the box. Click where it says the album’s name (Revival) to reach the full album. Alternatively, you can click the yellow “Buy MP3″ button to go to the page of the individual song that’s playing, from which you can also reach the full album’s page.
