Compare samples of the classic "Route 66" by both Chuck Berry and John Mayer.

Now where is the version used in the TV series of the same name? That was a great version, too.

Music blog of interest, which has been kind enough to include this humble blog onto its Blogroll.

Worth visiting just the same for its extensive musical Blogroll and for its photos and descriptions of musical instruments (which are available for sale - note the live links).

Prince to Receive Special Webby Award

Webby Awards

The Webby Awards? The Webbies? They are, as they say themselves, the online Oscars, awarded to outstanding contributions to the Web, such as, reasonably, the very best websites.

CafePress won the best retail Webby last year.

Anyway, Prince is about to win a Lifetime Achievement Award at the Webbies. Why? Because Prince has always fully used the capabilities of the Web, in fact being a Web pioneer. For example, Prince was the first major artist to release an entire album - 1997's Crystal Ball - exclusively on the Web. Note that this was in 1997.

Prince also has made available on his website seven full-length CDs of music unavailable anywhere else.
