Free blues vocal satire MP3: "Comcast Connection Blues"

Permalinks to this entry: individual page or in monthly context. For more material from my journal, visit my home page or the archive.

[broadband connection]Chris wrote some lyrics on December 7, 2005 as a blog post. Then he asked me to write a song around them. The result is perhaps the whitest possible white-boy blues, wherein two guys from the Pacific Northwest complain about an unreliable broadband Internet connection. It's "Comcast Connection Blues" (4.8 MB MP3 file), baby. You may download it and cry your broadband nights away.

It features me actually singing for a change, and also includes what I must say is some surprisingly fine lead blues guitar, which I recorded in only a couple of takes. It was mastered by Les Thorn in New York City. The tape operator was my five-year-old daughter, Ms. L. Miller. The track is also available via Chris's website, as well as on iTunes and the Podsafe Music Network. It's © 2005 by Derek K. Miller and Chris Pirillo.
