Out today: Johnny Cash--American VI: Ain't No Grave

American VI: Ain't No Grave, is the sixth and final installment of Johnny Cash's critically-acclaimed American Recordings album series. As with the previous five albums in the American Recordings series, American VI was produced by Rick Rubin.

American VI is deeply elegiac and spiritual, with each song its own piece of the puzzle of life's mysteries and challenges - the pursuit of salvation, the importance of friendships, the dream of peace, the power of faith, and the joys and adversities that entail simple survival. It is an achingly personal and intimate statement, as, from the end of the line, Johnny Cash looks back on a most extraordinary life.

Sale priced at only $9.99 for a limited time.

We also remind you to wear black for Johnny on Friday, February 26. It's Johnny Cash's 78th birthday. Pay your respects to the man who gave his voice to the poor and beaten-down. Wear black.

Former Eugenean Erik Carlson and Andrew Nelson make up the electro-pop duo DoublePlusGood. Playing since 2005, Carlson released his first CD as a one-man band on Sleepsound Records in 2007. DoublePlusGoods new mini album, the Dancipation Proclamation, reflects a reimagining of DoublePlusGood. Instead of a band flirting with dance and electro influences, DoublePlusGood dives headfirst into uptempo glitch-pop. The circuit bent synths and distorted drums compliment a more confident and confrontational lyrical sentiment. Come catch Doubleplusgood live at CD WORLD on Saturday February 20th at 3pm and then see them later that night at Sam Bond's in Eugene. Dancipation Proclamation will on be on sale at a special sale price!

Happy Mardi Gras + Preservation Jazz Hall Band

FOR A LIMITED TIME: Pick up a copy of Preservation: An Album To Benefit Preservation Hall & The Preservation Hall Music Outreach Program and score a peice of genuine N'Awlins King Cake and some super sweet beads, courtesy of the Preservation Hall crew!

Also on sale: Titles by many of the artists appearing on the Preservation Hall benefit album, including Steve Earle, Del McCoury Band, and My Morning Jacket!

Over the last year, more than 20 of American music s most exciting artists traveled to Preservation Hall in New Orleans to collaborate with the Preservation Hall Jazz Band on classic New Orleans repertoire. The end result is a timeless and joyous celebration of New Orleans music. Proceeds from the sale of the project will benefit Preservation Hall and The Preservation Hall Music Outreach Program. Preservation Hall, located in the French Quarter just three blocks from the Mississippi River, remains the intimate venue it originally was when it opened in 1961 as a performance space dedicated to honoring, celebrating and perpetuating New Orleans jazz. Originally erected as a Spanish Tavern in the 1750s, Preservation Hall is a modest French Quarter structure. The building has no running water or air conditioning, and the only seating accommodations are six benches and a few cushions strewn about the worn wooden floor. Its raw and weather-beaten exterior remains unpainted. A half-century later, Preservation Hall continues to ensure the cultural legacy and the future of this beautiful tradition by allowing young and old to collaborate together. In the spirit of New Orleans, legendary and emerging artists donated their time to travel to New Orleans to record this special compilation album benefiting Preservation Hall and the Preservation Hall Music Outreach Program.

The complete roster of artists includes: Louis Armstrong, Andrew Bird, Terence Blanchard, Pete Seeger, Dr. John, Blind Boys of Alabama, Brandi Carlile, Cory Chisel, Ani DiFranco, Steve Earle, Merle Haggard, Richie Havens, Jason Isbell, Jim James, Angelique Kidjo, Amy LaVere, Anita Briem, Del McCoury, Buddy Miller, Paolo Nutini, and Tom Waits.

Pick up this album today for just $10.99 standard and $15.99 deluxe. Help preserve Preservation Hall, a true national treasure.

Have a happy lent everyone, au revoir!
