Paul Westerberg's 49:00

This is now unavailable so get it while it's hot. Totally great. Best thing Westerberg's done in years. And it's like a cassette! Meaning: it's a whole album on just one mp3 so you can't skip tracks. AND it has the feel of a demo tape that's been recorded over several times, so there are a lot of snippets of songs. The overall effect is perfect.

I liked it pretty well on first listen. The copywrite problem is too bad...he's not even really covering those songs, he's just throwing in snippets as a sort of collage. It reminds me a little bit of old school hip hop sampling, back before you had to pay for 5 seconds of every song you wanted to use. I liked the effect.
