Song Spotlight: Josh Freese: "I Don't Think That's OK"

I've got a free song from a very unique album for you today.  Josh Freese has a new album called Since 1972 coming out later this month, and the pricing scheme for the album is rather... interesting, to say the very least.  I'll let you read the full details for yourself on his website, but basically there are 11 different packages you can buy, ranging in price from $7 for a digital download of the album all the way up to $75,000 for an extravagant package that allows you to go on tour with Josh for a few days, have Josh write, record and release a 5 song EP about you and your life story, take home any one of his drumsets of your choosing... and that's just the start of it.  He insists that these packages are real - I'm waiting to see if anyone will actually take him up on one of the more expensive offers.

In the meantime, the first single from the album has been posted to the website.  In exchange for your email address, you get a free download of "I Don't Think That's OK".  I'm not going to post a detailed review, since it's just one song, but I will say that it rocks.  Go check it out, and happy listening!

This is a brilliant, if somewhat bizarre idea. Even the way he describes the offers is great. From the sense of humour displayed on the page you link to I'd say he was serious. (If that makes sense.)

Thanks for drawing this to my attention.
