Not since "Oil"...

I know I'm not usually a big links poster (often because my dial-up connection at home is so achingly slow), but (I'm on the high-speed at work right now and) I just found a free download of a new song by Steve Forbert, one of my undisputed music gods. When I find he has something new out, or even a re-issue of something old that I don't already have, I buy it then and there, whether I have the money or not. Well, to be honest, I haven't yet encountered the "or not" situation, but if I had I'd probably have mugged someone or tried turning tricks in the parking lot or something, or maybe just put it on my credit card, although I don't recall his ever having been able to take credit cards when I've bought things at live shows, but it has been a while since I've seen him live, too long actually. But I digress.

Forbert isn't often overtly political or topical. There's that "Oil" song, true, and "Good Planets Are Hard To Find," but he's not a protest singer or anything. So "The Baghdad Dream" is a bit of a rarity. Click on over and check it out.
