Rykodisc Celebrates 25 years

The fine folks over at Rykodisc have been re-issuing some of the finest records of our times for a quarter century. Their catalogue include works from diverse artists including Ali Farke Toure, Ry Cooder, Nick Drake, Richard and Linda Thompson, Kate and Anna McGarrigle, as well as more recent indie faves Flaming Lips, The Dead Milkmen, The Replacements and more. To celebrate their 25 years of good work the label will be offering five free downloads each month of 2008. All you have to do is head over here and register to start enjoying some of their excellent canon. Included in this batch are "Diarby", a track of Ali Farke Toure and Ry Cooder's excellent 'Talking Timbuktu', and 'Kulanjan', a Taj Mahal track from the album of the same name.
