Freegal Playlists - Dowload Today

Freegal is a fantastic service, but there is so much available, we provide patron and staff playlists to help you find something great to download. We'll cover everything from classical to country.  For more info on the service, jump to our previous post.  To access the library of available music, you will need your Edwardsville barcode and PIN.  Scroll to the bottom of our webpage, click on the Freegal link, and away you go!  Please be advised that an an entire album will require multiple downloads (patrons are allowed 3/week).

This list is provided by John R., EPL patron and guest blogger.

R&B, Doo-Wop, or just Pop--call it what you will--radio during the mid-to-late 50's was filled with great music.  Now labeled "Oldies" as well, the sample presented here is not just for the geriatric set.  Two important technical notes:  (1) Many of these songs were well performed by others.  (2) There was much exploitation by record companies and promoters--most of the original artists never achieved the wealth they should have.
