FREE Phish album download: Live Bait Vol. 01 August 25, 2010

One of the things I love about the Internet is finding FREE music downloads. What a great way to try out music that is new to me, especially when it is a band or genre I’ve been wanting to try out anyhow!

Download Phish’s album, Live Bait Vol. 01, for FREE by clicking here. Never heard of Phish? You’re not alone; they’re not often played on main stream radio and they rely on an extremely loyal fan base! Phish (pronounced “fish”) encompasses a wide variety of genres including “rock, jazz, progressive rock, psychedelic rock, hard rock, funk, folk, bluegrass, reggae, country, blues, avant garde, and classical” — say THAT three times fast!  In other words, they’re eclectic and will keep you on your toes.

Note that you’ll need to create a log in for LivePhish (the site that opens) and it will look like a normal “check out” process as if you were buying the album, but the entire time the total price will be $0.00. No need to enter any personal info other than email address!
