Amazon has once again released free sampler albums to download. As always, it is difficult to pass up free music and I am always looking for artists that I have not been previously exposed to.
The first album, Tuff Gong Worldwide World Music Sampler, contains Reggae tracks by Ziggy Marley, Ky-Mani Marley, Cedella Marley, and Josey Wales. As samplers go, this one feels more cohesive than many but that may be because 4 of the 7 tracks are from the same artist.
The second album, ESL World Music Sampler, contains 8 tracks from a variety of genres including Latin, Eastern, and Electronic. This album is less cohesive than the former, but each track is performed by a different artist so it provides exposure to more artists.
I hope to have a review written for one or both of these albums soon. As I have finally posted the review for Best of Bootie 2007 that I had been finalizing for the last two weeks, this should not take too long.
