I don't listen to Cities 97, but my siblings do. And my sister loves the Sampler. So, I signed up for something or other a few years ago to try to win a chance to buy a copy before it goes on sale. This is a really great idea, because they only run 30,000 copies or so and it sells out in a heartbeat. And as much as I love my sister, I'm so not fighting a crowd at Target at the asscrack of dawn to buy her a copy for her birthday.
Lo and behold, I did get an advance copy again this year and it arrived yesterday. I'm also okay with waiting for it, because there are about three songs on it that I actually like.
So, here you go. Don't feel bad about downloading it. They encourage sharing, what with the limited copies and all that (the money from the Sampler goes to charity). The songs are all live and in-studio. Except for the couple that were recorded at some other venue around town.
Download it now.
