SpinTunes #9 Round 1 Songs

The LP went off without a hitch (nice work Tom).  Turns out that U-Stream has brought back it's chat option, but we will probably stick with http://chatwing.com/SpinTunes for at least the rest of SpinTunes 9.  It has a few cool features that U-Stream's chat just doesn't have.

Some people have been wanting the lyrics to be available during the LP.  I think I have a pretty simple solution, so as long as someone reminds me the day before the LP, I can make that happen.

The songs are now available for FREE download, and you can vote for your favorite entries as well. Many of you will be asking friends and family to support you in the popular vote. That's great, but when you do, please ask them to listen to all the songs & vote for their favorites. You can vote for multiple people, so they might as well listen to everyone.

Until the round 2 songs are posted I will only allow people to download the round 1 album as a whole. But even after that, PLEASE download the entire album vs downloading just a handful of songs while the contest is on going. BandCamp limits how many free downloads I can give away, and 1 album download counts the same as 1 song download.

After the Listening party ended, some of us hung out in a Google+ hang out awhile.  If you want to drop into our next hangout you can add me to your circles & I'll add you my SpinTunes circle.  Also, we have a
private Facebook group that any song contributor to the contest is allowed to join.  I'd love to see you all there joining in on the conversations.

With  21 entries turned in for round 1, that means there will be 5 eliminations in round 1, then 6 eliminations in rounds 2 & 3. That would leave 4 finalists for round 4. Good luck everyone.

You can find the album on BandCamp by clicking the image below:
