Free Tompkins Square music


If you’re an emusic subscriber, Tompkins Square Records is offering a free album each day from now through Monday (11/30). That recent Tim Buckley live album isn’t on the list, unfortunately. Nor is Charlie Louvin or that Murder Ballads & Disaster Songs box set. But Peter Walker is, and I’m curious to check out Frank Fairfield, too. Here’s the list:

Nov 24: Nick Jonah Davis, Guitar Recordings Vol. 1
Nov 25: Powell St. John, On My Way To Houston
Nov 26: Ben Reynolds, How Day Earnt Its Night
Nov 27: Selections from Fire in My Bones : Raw + Rare + Otherworldly African-American Gospel, 1944-2007

Nov 29: Peter Walker, Long Lost Tapes 1970
