Check out our Music & Media page for streaming audio from our catalog. We’ve put together a collection of tracks you can listen to anywhere, anytime! Over 90 min’s of music. You can also embed [update: bandcamp and youtube] players on your own site. We’ve also put up a few tracks from the new archive series on the Mastermind and Mastermind Live pages on Myspace to enjoy.

[UPDATE: deleted ancient dead links. Most links on the sounds page should work. -Bb]

New Digital Archive Releases

April 25th, 2008 | Category: Mastermind,music,News

Our Mindawn launch is off to a good start and we’re still just getting the word out, so be sure to tell a friend! As promised we’ve put up digital archive titles on Mindawn. Click the covers for more info, but briefly these albums represent different periods of the band in concert.

    Another Cold & Rainy Night

    The 2002 quartet line up live with Tracy McShane singing.

    Mastermind Live 1995

    What should have been the official live trio album of the 90’s.

You can listen for free then purchase (if you choose) and print your own covers. It’s a pretty neat way to get music out to the public and FLAC is full CD quality audio. Also coming are various studio out takes, band demos, and more live shows. Some of the live recordings are not quite “release” quality, so we may make some available free for the po’ folk. Some old master tapes require baking so it may be a little while, but we’re working on it.

The truth is a) we want this stuff to be heard and b) it will help raise awareness and capital to get a NEW Mastermind album released and promoted. Maybe even *hire* a great bassist so we can get out and do some festivals. Our target goal is $5,000 USD and we’re just getting started. So if you’ve enjoyed the music of Mastermind in the past and would like more, purchasing these (and other) digital titles will help us move forward toward these goals.

In all honesty, after the trials and tribulations of the last few years, I had to step away from it for a while to clear my mind. Now we’d all really like to get rolling again and we’re asking our true fans, friends, and supporters both old and new to help out. Spread the word, visit, sign up to the Newsletter, and RSS bookmark this blog. Thanks! ~Bb

Digital Music Downloads Available Now!!

April 10th, 2008 | Category: internet,Mastermind,music,News

We are pleased to announce the entire Mastermind catalog is now available digitally for the first time. We have chosen as our host service for its superior audio quality and progressive music origins. The links have been active for a few days but now it is official – Mastermind has joined the digital revolution! In addition to our release catalog we will be offering digital-only titles from our archives. The first is MASTERMIND LIVE 1995 online now.

Webmasters, bloggers, & media are encouraged to quote from this press release.

[Mindawn is currently the ONLY site officially authorized to sell Mastermind digital music. Anywhere else selling our music is probably a legacy venture (i/e former labels) for which we no longer see a penny, or a pirate site. Please do not use them! We would appreciate you bringing any of these places to our attention so we may investigate. Thanks.]
