Sounds of Cambridge, Vol. 1 An Unbelievably Good Introduction to the Local Scene

Our friends over at Cambridge Live Music have released Sounds of Cambridge, Vol. 1, the first in a (hopefully long) series of amazing compilations.  It's a fabulous showcase of the wonderful musical talent in that area.  Spanning a number of genres and boasting a mix of new and old tracks, the CD makes an unbelievably good introduction to the local scene.

From the website: "An independent jury of industry professionals had the unenviable, and daunting task of narrowing the submissions down to the final 19 songs presented here. This CD is not intended to represent a cross section of the Cambridge music scene; but it is a tasty sampler of some of the music that's getting played around town most weekends by these very talented artists."

CDs and downloads are available at the Sounds of Cambridge web store.

Discs can also be picked up at:
