Mr. Admin,

I was fortunate enough to download "Shoulders Of Fate" before the big crash recently. More 40 LB Head info please!

Info or music? :D Welllll... 40 Lb. Head is local group to the Wyoming Valley started back in 1997 or 96. they been playing all over the place since. Have released 3 CD's which have sold pretty well locally. They still get some local airplay on "The Mountain" which has got to be the only station in the country that will actually play local acts during regular hours. http://www.102themountain.com/

They still play but not quite as often, mostly for the love of the music. Next big show is a benefit at the Woodland's "Concert for a Cause 6" which they have been a part of since its inception in 1999 when it was "Concert for Karen".

Of course you can "head" to the website here: http://www.40lbhead.com Click the play button up in the left hand side to paly some music. that player is loaded with their entire collection but at very low bitrate so the quality is not all that great.

I made it but it badly needs some updates, some of the pages are half done from previous update but I got caught up in other things and wasn't able to complete them. Guess that will happen with free. :P

Here's all three albums in there entirety. Before downloading understand that these are not free. You can download them and listen all you want for evaluation, if you decide to keep them, even one song you have to make a donation to charity. Either a charity of your choice or you can make one to the bands preferred charity Valley with a Heart:
http://www.valleywithaheart.com/id20.html
This link is broken, either the page no longer exists or there is some other issue like a typo.


The other stipulation is you also have to buy the guys in the band a drink if you're ever at one of their shows. :D You can also distribute these files to anyone you wish but make sure they understand the conditions for keeping them. Those who fail to comply to these conditions will be struck down by the beer gods.

Savior Self - First album - 68MB

Hills and Valleys - Second album - 76MB

Third Shift - Third album - 75MB

No strings attached files can be found here: http://www.40lbhead.com/headfiles/index.php?cat=3

Here's a live acoustic version/radio interview of their most played song "The Empire" not included in the above downloads:

Just to clarify the above requirements for keeping these songs if it's charity of your choice it doesn't have to be exactly a "charity". Any oraganiztion that gives back to the community is fine providing its non-profit, preferably a local one.

Here's some harmonica:
