Hey, we've said it a million times, but let's say it again: The Second Disc has some of the best readers out there. The idea that so many of you like catalogue music as much as Joe and I do, and the idea that so many of you come back to read our news and musings, day in and day out...well, it just makes me feel good.
And we've done a solid job (we hope!) of reaching out to every fan old and new across the Internet, be it Facebook or Twitter or even in the comments section of the site. As I type this, we are two likes away from 500 fans of The Second Disc on Facebook. That's pretty awesome - I don't even know if I know 500 people.
But Joe and I know there are more fans out there, who might be looking for the perfect catalogue music hangout. And we want to find you. And we know just the thing that might get you out of hiding:
That's right, we have a copy of Paul Simon's Graceland 25th anniversary box set from Legacy Recordings - the one with the album, the bonus disc of demos and outtakes and two DVDs (the Under African Skies documentary and a live show from the Graceland tour) - and we're going to give it to the 1,000th person who likes us on Facebook. Call it pandering to our audience if you want, but we really, really like you guys, and this is the least we could do to show our appreciation.
So it's simple: head to our page as linked in the last two paragraphs and click "like." We'll be able to tell who liked us when, and when we get to 1,000, we'll call out the winner. And if you do like us for the prize, we do hope you stick around, because there are some really cool things ahead for The Second Disc!
As always, keep listening...
