Several years ago, on the old site, we posted a collection of mp3s. As the Internet is truly international, a Chinese site that links to music found these old songs and has linked to them There have been several hundred downloads this month alone. So for the rest of you, here’s the original post and links.
In 1999, Attitude Records contacted Jacksonville musician, musicologist and recording engineer Mike Fitzgerald about an interesting project. The idea was to have current North Florida musicians do covers of past hits originally recorded by North Florida musicians and songwriters. Musicians volunteered to play and began cutting the tracks at several First Coast studios. But, as happens in the industry, the record company went under and the recorded songs sat on tape in Mike’s studio gathering dust.
We’re happy to be able to release them here for educational purposes. They’re in mp3 format.
