Oh Boy Records Now on Bandcamp

We are very excited to announce that Oh Boy Records’ music is now digitally available on Bandcamp. A wealth of music including John Prine, Steve Goodman, and Dan Reeder is available to purchase or stream.

Bandcamp is compatible with iTunes, and often costs less to download songs and offers higher-quality downloads than iTunes. Available download formats include MP3, AAC, Ogg Vorbis, FLAC, and ALAC.

Some of the available John Prine albums include “The Missing Years”, “Souvenirs”, “John Prine Live”, and “Fair & Square”. All of these great albums and more can be downloaded immediately.

Many Steve Goodman albums are also available through Bandcamp. A few titles include No Big Surprise: “The Steve Goodman Anthology”, “Live at the Earl of Old Town”, and “Unfinished Business”. Check them out here.

All of Dan Reeder’s albums can also be found on Bandcamp, including his brand-new album titled “This New Century”. This album hits stores February 16th, but is available in advance right now at Bandcamp.

We hope you enjoy this excellent new resource. It is a perfect opportunity to revisit classic albums and discover fantastic new songs.

John Prine on TV's "Spectacle with Elvis Costello" TONIGHT

John Prine is a guest on Elvis Costello's critically-acclaimed show "Spectacle with Elvis Costello" tonight at 10pm eastern, along with Ray LaMontagne and Lyle Lovett. Look for the show on the Sundance Channel. It is sure to be an awesome show, and a great chance to see excellent songwriters perform together. Check here for all the air times:

"Spectacle with Elvis Costello" features everything from intimate one-on-one conversations with legendary performers and notable newcomers to thematic panel discussions.

Guest artists not only talk but perform - demonstrating the development and creation of their music and playing new, stripped-down or solo versions of some of their best and most loved songs.

Costello also performs, starting each episode with his interpretation of a song either by or connected to the featured guest. In addition, "Spectacle" features extraordinary, once-in-a-lifetime collaborations and duets.

Hope you have a chance to watch it!
