    Hey jds, can you tell me anything abut a 21 year old folk singer/blues guitarist out of Mass. named Willie Mason. I found the lyrics to his song, Oxygen, which I really like. Haven't been able to find a track to listen to. Tell me what you know.

    Issac -- Willy Mason put out an AWESOME ep and then fell off the radar. Oxygen was a killer song. Then like 2 years later his ep came out and it was mediocre.

    Also -- I found this blog by checking my referals to my site. It's pretty rude to direct link to songs without asking (even if you do give credit.)

    Hey -

    Have you heard the whole CD - worth shelling out the case?

    Have a great week!

    I haven't heard the whole thing. Tributes are usually a weird thing for me. I don't know of a single tribute album where I like all the tracks and find it worthy of having the whole disc. Given that I'm super tight on cash right now it probably won't get purchased. But who knows, I might be walking around the record shop and end up putting it on the counter. It's been known to happen.

    Take it with a grain of salt, but Pitchfork gave it a respectable 7.2.
