QUICK TAKES: FREE CASH AND A VIDEO:

Making my blog rounds this morning I saw something worth reposting over on Saving Country Music. Apparently 15 tracks from early sessions that would utlimately give birth to Johnny’s American Recordings have been assembled and offered for free. Now, I haven’t listened to them yet but according to Saving Country Music, “It’s just Johnny Cash and his guitar, sitting in Rick Rubin’s living room, except for one track accompanied by Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top. No overdubbs, just a live mic, warts and all.”

You can download it over at thefrontloader.com.

Now, for something of a lighter note….

Normally, I don’t post this kind of stuff but this fan made video for The Black Keys’ track, “Tighten Up” makes me laugh everytime I watch it so I thought I’d share it with y’all:
