So far, I've had two people interested in my recording of Mike Doughty's concert in Nashville on November 6. I am giving the recording away free... I don't know if anyone else recorded it
Mike Doughty is known as "taper friendly." He understands that indie artists benefit from the publicity of devoted fans who are happy to share live recordings.
And he has been rewarded for this approach, at least from me. I've snatched up everything that he's offered for sale, including the very rare, limited edition "Smofe + Smang." True fans of musicians are happy to pay for the music. And freely available, amateur recordings always add to the visibility of an artist's commercial work.
