Check out our Music & Media page for new streaming audio from our catalog. Utilizing the file hosting site BooMP3.com and their cool little Flash player widgets, we’ve put together a collection of tracks you can listen to anywhere, anytime! Over 90 min’s of music. Click on the “open player in new window” link found there for a popup window to play Mastermind music while you surf the web. A broadband connection is most likely required.
You can also embed these players on your own site. Get the code by clicking the little blue squares or the song title on our music page. We’ve also put up a few other tracks from the new archive series on the Mastermind and Mastermind Live pages on Myspace to enjoy.
ps: sometimes it takes a moment for the track to start playing, sometimes it doesn’t. It also seems to work a little more quickly in IE7 than Firefox. Go figure. But it does work! Cool.No comments

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

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 mindawn.com, sign up to the Newsletter, and RSS bookmark this blog. Thanks! ~BbNo comments
We are pleased to announce the entire Mastermind catalog is now available digitally for the first time. We have chosen mindawn.com 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.]
Historians rate GW….
“George W. Bushâ€™s record on running up debt to burden our children is the worst since Ronald Reagan; his record on government surveillance of citizens is the worst since Richard Nixon; his record on foreign-military policy has gotten us into the worst foreign mess weâ€™ve been in since Lyndon Johnson sank us into Vietnam; his economic record is the worst since Herbert Hoover; his record of tax favoritism for the rich is the worst since Calvin Coolidge; his record of trampling on civil liberties is the worst since Woodrow Wilson. How far back in our history would we need to go to find a presidency as disastrous for this country as that of George W. Bush has been thus far?”
I know this has little to do with music, but I count the days until he is gone.
