July 4th, 2008

Looking through my archives, I've never blogged on Independence Day, even though we've been given a gift-wrapped song in Jason Anderson's July 4th, 2004, the original of which I have written about before and made my top 50 of 2007. That version topped 6 minutes and was jam-packed full of some of the rawest and most uplifting enthusiasm I've ever heard, while this one clocks in at a more single-friendly and faster-paced 3:28. Well Mr. Anderson put out about 6 records so far in 2008, of which I own two. He records nearly completely live, for fairly obvious reasons. The life in his voice is enough to fuel the whole of us.
