Just so you know, Amazon MP3 is currently offering downloads of Merle Haggard’s 1968 album Mama Tried (one of three Haggard albums released that year, if I’m not mistaken… now that’s prolific) and Steve Earle’s tribute to Townes Van Zandt – which isn’t even officially released until tomorrow – for $0.99 and $2.99 respectively. That’s a whole lot of good music for $3.98. I already have the Haggard album, but am taking advantage of the Earle deal. Thought I’d pass along the word to others who might be interested. Not sure how long these prices will last, so act quickly if you want to get in on the action.
