Free Loudon Wainwright Download

Loundon Wainwright III is offering an MP3 file of his latest timely satire, President’s Day, free for downloading off of his web site. The song was recorded live last month in California. In the continuing discussion on Eric’s entry Is folk music “manly”?, poster Mike Smith says that John McCutcheon describes these as “short shelf life songs.” Although Wainwright has always been highly critical of those who download music from the web, according to his web site, he felt the nature of the song warranted the quickest dissemination route possible.
