joel Mabus

Joel Mabus  >  "They Didn't Believe Me" from "Parlor Guitar"

Joel's latest CD, entitled Parlor Guitar, has a double meaning: The guitar Joel plays on this recording is known as a parlor guitar -- smaller in size than the modern acoustic guitar. Secondly, the melodies on this album are from the "parlor song era" -- the early 20th and late 19th centuries. Listen, enjoy, get a free track!

Free Legal MP3s! efolkMusic Goes One-up on Napster!
    efolkMusic has been distributing free and for sale MP3s since 1999, before Napster and long before iTunes, and we're still ahead of them! Napster is offering "free" tracks, but with some severe caveats- the tracks are lo-fi 32kbps and you can only listen 5 times before you pay up (Is that really free???).
     Enjoy a really free track from almost all of our member artists, hi-fi 192kbps tracks in unrestricted MP3 format- Start your browsing here, at Download Central

Full-length Previews!
     Almost all of our member artists offer full-length streaming previews of their music, not the short clips offered elsewhere. Here's our logic: If we wanted to interest you in a painting, would we just show you a corner? Of course not- and the full emotional weight of a song is only realized if you hear the entire track. Stop in and listen to a few, new tracks added daily.
