I got a promo for Daytrotter in my inbox, and it’s pretty darn cool:
“The 14th installment in the Daytrotter Presents vinyl series, this 180-gram, split 12-inch vinyl pairs one of the new greats in American blues and rock and roll – Gary Clark Jr. – with one of the originators of Delta blues, Son House. Already a new legend, Clark Jr. taped this session with us during the 2012 South By Southwest festival in his hometown of Austin, Texas…. The Son House side is a short concert at the legendary Los Angeles club, Ash Grove, in the spring of 1968. The songs and the details between songs are impassioned and spirited….”
The promo goes on to say, “This split is ONLY AVAILABLE FOR FREE FOR THE NEXT 14 DAYS!! It is available for FREE to anyone purchasing a new annual Daytrotter membership or any current member purchasing an annual gift membership for a friend or loved one by July 22nd (shipping not included), as well as being available directly here in the store. Get these while you can. We will only press as many as are pre-ordered.”
No, this is not an ad for Daytrotter, and we’re not affiliated in any way. We’re just enthusiastic about music on vinyl — and that’s one smart membership drive.
