Album Notes
Past reviews of this annual compilation:

"Excellent & Diverse Sampler - I rarely keep more than a couple of tracks from free samplers. This one is an exception. There are so many talented artists that play in such a variety of genres--it's pretty amazing. From indie and alternative rock, to jazz, African, Latino, blues, neo-soul, Americana, alt-country, electro--etc. etc. etc. Staggering variety, impressive quality. I only deleted 5 or 6 of these 59 freebies, and will probably explore some of the artists further. A Christmas treat. Grab it!"

"Fantastic Compilation! This is the best sampler I've every downloaded anywhere!"

"This is a great collection of very listenable tunes. Something here for everyone. :) Check it out, you will find a LOT to love here."

"Amazing selection! Seldom do I find so many downloads on one album. My compliments."

"Wow! Do I love this massive collection. The downside is finding too many new artists to buy in the future. Well, I guess that's not so bad after all."

"...real happy I downloaded this. There's some great stuff here and it's FREE! I might end up deleting a few, but most are keepers. A lot of different sounds and styles, something for everyone."

"The Independent Music Awards people have been bringing out these freebie albums [for several years]. There's always such a variety that there's always something that appeals, even if I delete the rest. They're always worth hearing, and I'll be giving them a listen for as long as they keep putting them out."
