Well we haven't done one of these in a while...It is time once again for some free tuneage RTBE Style:

Click Here for the Free Download!!!

We are dipping back into the Free Database Service Freegal, provided by the good ol' NYPL. We have compiled 9 songs for your listening pleasure, spanning all over the globe, genre and musical timeline.  Below we will go over our picks, but just realize they will be jumping around a lot, just like a  good mix should.  Enjoy.

1. Consolacao  - Trio 3D
2. You Pretty Little Girl - Dwayne Dopsie, The Zydeco Hellraisers
3. I Got A Right - Iggy Pop & The Stooges
4. Watch Out - Modus
5. List of Demands - Saul Williams
6. The Night Time Is The Right Time - "Big" Joe Turner
7. Piggly Wiggly - Beale Street Washboard Band
8. Where You Find It - Unknown Instructors
9. Girlschool - Britny Fox

Some overview should go into this haphazard collection, but basically we just grabbed some stuff we knew and some we hadn't.  First off is the Brazilian Jazz of Trio 3D, they were the reason we started this mix, so we figured we'd open with them.

While listening to some jazz on youtube, this song popped up on the right hand side, we played it and loved it.  After not finding too much about them online, we decided to try the Freegal database and this mix was born.  The intro here reminds us of a Primus intro and the jazz after that is delicious.   

Never too far from NOLA (in our mind at least) we dip into some Zydeco next with Dwayne Dopsie.  This is the second time we touched on this genre this month. The Punk rock distorts its way home with Iggy Pop & The Stooges next, they sure do have a right. A band called Modus is next, not too much known about them, except that we love this tune with it's garage rock style and meaty organ sound.   

After that Saul Williams gets some air time.  We actually reviewed this awesomely titled album back when it came out, and we mentioned just grabbing this song and moving that is what we did for you.  "Big" Joe Turner is next up with a great live version of "The Night Time Is The Right Time", a pure gem.

We go back even more old school for the Beale Street Washboard Band as they old-timey their way through the festive "Piggly Wiggly".  The post-punk of the Unknown Instructors is next, I hadn't heard of this pairing of artists (a reunited Minutemen rhythm section!) until I started digging into Fregal and doing some research. This song was very interesting to me, hope you enjoy it, but I know it may not be for everyone.  

Speaking of not for everyone...We end things strictly because of a drunken rambling the other night with Tom.  For some UN-godly reason Britny Fox came up in conversation...please do not inquire as too why.  Anyway, this is another great use for Freegal, dredging up long dead memories and making them come to just as ugly life as you remember them....

This wouldn't be complete without Britny's video for "Girlschool". The video is the reason one synapse in my brain remembered this song, well maybe not the whole video, but the main girl at least never left my mind...smoking hot... here you go...

you are welcome, I think.  Anyway enjoy the mix and I apologize to Big Joe Turner's ghost for including him with Britny Fox...ahhh Rock and Roll....
