*Benn loxo du taccu This world-music blog used to be exclusively African music, but lately there have been posts dealing with China, Syria, Argentina, Turkey, and so on. I don't download very much from here but I'm glad its there, and sometimes I like it.
Battle of the Midwestern Housewives - just found this one today, but it looks like a nice punk&ska source.
Born Again '80s - mostly remixes and 12" of old 80s songs. But that means sometimes a version I've never heard of a song I already know I like.
Copy, Right? - sadly defunct now; but Lobstar/Liza had some great posts, and her Blog Roll is worth mining for other music blogs you might like.
Cover Freak - A decent little cover blog.
Cover Lay Down - a good folk covers blog; you've probably seen me sharing items from here. I download anything that looks halfway decent or that I've heard of before.
Covering the Mouse a covers blog (detecting a theme?) devoted entirely to Disney songs. Sadly, no links to download the songs, but a little digging through the "View Source" will get you there, if you need to.
Fong Songs - Another covers blog I share a lot from; this week was Muppet Week.
Good Rockin' Tonight - Fairly new to my Reader list, but proving productive so far.
I AM FUEL, YOU ARE FRIENDS - Added last week, but seems like a keeper. Still in probation though.
i rock i roll - just added today; still on probation.
That's all for part 1. In part 2: L-Z!
