TVD's Fall Vinyl Giveaways Week

Our week of Fall Vinyl Giveaways come to a close with a rather cool compilation of artists paying tribute to the scene that was Greenwich Village in the ‘60’s and early ‘70’s featuring Shelby Lynne, Lucinda Williams, Bruce Hornsby, Rachael Yamagata, Amos Lee, Sixpence None the Richer, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Marshall Crenshaw, Rocco Deluca, Cowboy Junkies, John Oates, The Duhks, Los Lobos, Cary Brothers, Jesse Malin, and Mikey Powell.

Says Susan Rotolo author of the recent bestseller “A Freewheelin’ Time: A Memoir of Greenwich Village in the Sixties” and writer of THE VILLAGE liner notes: “The performers from that time, and the songs they wrote, made a notable contribution not only to the legend of Greenwich Village but also to music in general. No one who is young, making music and hanging out, thinks in historical terms, but the passage of time allows for such a perspective. Cultural history was made.”

Read the rest on the LP here and start slugging it out in the comments to this post below to take home this special time capsule.

We’re choosing all of our winners tomorrow, Saturday 11/14!

Ok I said I wasn't going to be greedy but...

I can't let an album with Rachael Yamagata pass me by without at least fighting for it.

So here I am once again groveling, begging, and pleading for the Vinyl Gods to show me some love.

Does bribery work as well as flattery?
