Snap, Crackle & Pop: Vol. IV

Every year Dewey Dell and I put together a compilation of vinyl-only tunes for friends and family, culled from our ever-expanding and space-eating LP collection. Some of it's relatively obscure, some just crowd-pleasing pap you could hear on a classic rock station. Much of it has appeared on this blog at one time or another. Snap, Crackle & Pop: Vol. IV hit the streets last week and while it's a limited edition item (we only make 20 copies), this year we're going internerd stizz and offering it up for mass consumption. That is, if you're able to unzip a HUGE file zipped up by WinZip, the Windows program that compresses stuff to a .zip file. If you can't do that and simply MUST have a song on here, lemme know and I'll post it.

CLICK HERE to get the file (83 megs). [Editor's Note: Due to popular demand, we've reposted the link here. Enjoy.]
