The Sandinista Project, once again free for a limited time

with 10 comments

UPDATE: The free download is over. Thanks for participating.

SandinistaprojectcoverloresA few years ago, I produced The Sandinista Project, in which 36 performers each covered one song from The Clash’s Sandinista! It was a fun and crazy project. Last summer, on Joe Strummer’s birthday, I made the record free for a day. The free download was a great success although what I learned from the experiment was more mixed.

I’ve been having a wonderful time on Boing Boing during my guestblogging residency and I’d like to say “thank you” by making the record free again, for a limited time. Instead of making it free for one day, which slowed the hamsters running the guterman.com servers to a crawl because everyone downloaded at once, I’m going to make the record, along with digital images of the packaging, available until midnight U.S. eastern time on Sunday night, so you’ll have plenty of time to download this before it goes away.

  2. I’d never heard of this version of what I think is a great, under-rated album, so I’m crossing my fingers for my download to complete successfully. Thanks for making this available, and thanks also for some great posts at Boing Boing.

  3. First of all, thanks for wanting to share a tribute to one of my favorite albums of all time. Please check out the new NEW ORDER TRIBUTE CD, Ceremony. My son’s band Turbovamps has a really cool punk cover of “Love Vigilantes” on the digital only version of he album. It is available on iTunes. Thanks again man.

  9. Hi Jimmy,

    I just wanted to sincerely thank you for the Clash Sandinista Project downloads. My favorite Clash album and I think your project did it justice. Your posts to Boing Boing were informative and interesting.
