While looking for a Booker T mp3 for the album streams earlier this week, I stumbled across the free Anti Sampler 2009 on Amazon, which also includes tracks by Neko Case, Jason Lytle, Mavis Staples, and others. Turns out Amazon has a bunch of label samplers that you can download for free.
Of course, if you read a lot of mp3 blogs you may have already downloaded most of these songs, since with a few exceptions these are the songs they’ve already made available on their own websites or through their publicists. Still, they’re worth checking out…and you can’t beat the price.
