Feel the Tight Kashmere

eMusic's FREE Daily Download is titled "Zero Point - Pt. 1 & Pt. 2 (45 Version)" by the amazing Kashmere Stage Band. Back in the 1960's, the band master at Kashmere High School had a vision. He knew his students were good; could they put on a show worthy of national attention? Absolutely! Their stage presence, choreography and unbelievably tight playing blew away the competition in band competitions across the country. Between 1968 and 1978 they released 8 albums, with a changing crew of players. Remember, these are high school students. The band broke up as their band master, Conrad Johnson, neared retirement. But fans, collectors and DJs snapped up their records.

Stones Throw and Now-Again records are bringing back this amazing jazz / funk / r&b music for those who remember the Kashmere Stage Band, and they're introducing this great music to those of us who weren't fortunate enough to know the band the first time around. Grab today's download while you can. Want even more? Download, Play, Burn MP3s of the album "Texas Thunder Soul: 1968-1974" when you sign up for 25 free downloads from eMusic. This music is too good to pass up.
