Imagine hearing Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan, Joe Strummer, or Woody Guthrie in their first studio recording with choice musicians and a mixer board. David Rovics has produced with his friends a recording of that caliber. Rovics has toured all over the world, even to Manhattan, Ks., made his works freely available to the people for many years through the Internet Archives and his own site, now he has finally made it to a studio with his "Big Red Sessions." This is a tour of real force, recording Rovics best, with not only a few of his classics (including the immortal "John Brown" ode for Kansas listeners) but new ballads that pierce the popular uprisings sweeping North Africa today. David Rovics does not sing with the middle class arrogance of a sixties bomb planting Weatherman, or even the youthful arrogance of the "Kill the Cops" anarchist popular today, instead he writes and blends the historical memories of a Resistance of Howard Zinn, as a balladeer of peoples' history. He with melody and rhyme simply helps us to understand where we might be going based on where people have been in Resistance, from all across the world. And that my friends is what makes great music for the ages. Listen in today to an AM radio rendition of David Rovics latest "The Big Red Sessions" .. a portion of all purchases of his latest CD from the web site will go toward the legal defense of PFc. Bradley Manning.
