All the music in this compilation available for free or under creative commons by these 21 wonderful artists. Their music has been distributed through the BitTorrent and Gnutella networks with FrostWire.
World Class Music Experience
In November 2008 we came up with the idea to team up with FrostWire to really go after world class content creators that were willing to share their work for free. At the beginning the search was hard, we had to come up with a series of requirements so that we could guarantee great quality content and it quickly became the rule of thumb that if the entire team would have their music in our portable mp3 players that was a strong sign that the artist should be promoted.
This compilation brings you the best of the best in free music that the FrostClick Team came across during the first months of 2009. In only 21 weeks we had our first 1,000,000 copies distributed, some artists reaching over 75 thousand downloads during their promotion (7 to 10 days), nowadays FrostWire artists can get over 100 thousand downloads during their runs on the FrostWire welcome screen.
After years of buying hundreds of CDs and many times being frustrated with lousy CD Booklets (no lyrics, no cool pictures) we decided you should not suffer the same disappointment with our compilation. You’re not only going to download a compilation with high quality mp3 hits, but you will get a Virtual Booklet with 44 high resolution pages which you can decide to print, or see with your favorite image viewer (you can even redistribute them since the art is all licensed under Creative Commons as well)
For each artist we’ve included 2 high resolution booklet pages with information about the artist, song, license, number of downloads, facts and where available we’ve even put the lyrics of the song to sing along.
A web page (booklet.html) has been included at the root of the compilation folder, you can open it to see the booklet in a very convenient way. Images will automatically adjust their sizes to your web browser window, an they’re presented in pairs, on the left the artist on the right: song lyrics, interviews or important facts about the artist.
The Booklet has been created keeping in mind the standard size of the regular CD Booklets in case you wish to print for a physical CD.
You can try a low resolution preview of the booklet.
