Joe Bonamassa: free (and legal) downloads

One of the things I want to do with this blog is to give links to free, legal, music downloads so while I am on a Joe Bonamassa kick, I thought I would feature him in this free download post.

It is pleasing to see that a number of record companies are seeing the value of offering free mp3 downloads as a way of promoting their artists and driving sales. One such company is Mascot Records who have made a few mp3 files available for download and also linked to some videos on their Joe Bonamassa page.

Of the tracks on offer, I'd say Miss You, Hate You was my favourite along with Merry Christmas Baby (even though it's a bit out of season for a Christmas song). However, they are all good and since they are free, you might as well treat yourself by downloading them all.

Hope you enjoy these free downloads. I'll try and feature more downloads, from a range of artists, over the next few weeks. Let me know if you have a favourite, and of course legal, source of free downloads.

Update: I just remembered an error on the Mascot Records' page. You get a "Not found" page when you click on the mp3 links. This is because they have linked to instead of Oops! I've corrected this in the two links given above but if you want any of the others, you'll have to fix it yourself.
