Steve Riley and the Mamou Playboys are working on a new CD – always great news!  But this one is a little different:  you can order it now and help pay for the cost of production.  As they say:

The Mamou Playboys have at long last decided to venture out on their own in the realm of recording. Like many musicians have in recent years, we are stepping away from the traditional music industry pattern. Instead of borrowing a large chunk of very expensive money from a record company, we are going to produce and finance our next record, and we’d like to offer you the chance to be a part of it.

I ordered my copy through the site and paid for it with PayPal.  They say it will be sent “months” before it’s available in stores.  Music stores need our business, and I won’t be ordering all my CDs online, either from the artist or major e-retailers.  Louisiana Music Factory will always be a great place to hang out and talk with experts, hear artists, and buy the latest CDs and oldest 45s.
