Don Dixon

The great southern musician, Don Dixon has made a new track available for free download. Most music fans know Don as a producer for early R.E.M. records. However, Don has been making great music since his days in the band Arrogance.

So, go download the song, scroll down toward the bottom of the page and click on the link that says cleverly -- Click here to download "The Night That Otis Died" (You'll be prompted to enter an e-mail address, but if you're concerned about privacy the page seems to be accepting bogus addresses, so you can always lie. My personal favorite is HisBoySherman@Snoppdog.Rap)

In my humble opinion, this may well be the best song Don has ever written. It's about Otis Redding's death, well sorta... it's about that and more. This song is one of those tracks that just derails you. You will just have listen to it over and over and over.

Grab it now - it's not on his new record (due April 6) thanks to some complicated lawyer issues, and there are no guarantees he'll be able to offer it for download indefinitely.
