This Friday, June 1st, Two-Thousand And Twelve, we here at Daytrotter -- on the muddy Mississippi River in Rock Island, Illinois -- are posting our 2000th Daytrotter session. Point your browser to and come celebrate with us.

We pulled out the stops and are commemorating the milestone with the debut session from country legend Glen Campbell. The Rhinestone Cowboy performs three classic cuts and the heartbreaking lead track from his new and final studio album.

In a symbolic nod to the sheer volume of killer, one-of-a-kind live sessions that we've posted since the site launched in February 2006, our 2001st posting is from the great Delta Spirit -- their 5th!

In celebration of our 2000th Daytrotter session, we are offering $20 annual memberships to Daytrotter for the next 24 hours only.

Coming at you from The Horseshack in downtown Rock Island, IL, Daytrotter brings you 5 new sessions a day, every day -- 140 Daytrotter session songs each week.

These fine people, traveling through America’s heartland, take two hours out of their travels between shows to stop in for a session in downtown Rock Island, Ill. They use borrowed instruments, play with their touring mates, utilize an often unkempt toilet, eat some food and then cram back into their vans for the last half of the drive. What they leave behind is a pile of ashes, sometimes a forgotten stocking hat and four absolutely collectible songs – song as they are on that particular day, on that particular tour; dirty and alive

Recorded with minimal mic’ing, through discrete preamps and with some limiting, to the mixing console, they are printed to 1/4” analog tape running at 15 inches per second (usually BASF 468). There is no set formula or pattern to the recordings, and they are all live, no overdubs, straight to tape.

Here's to the next 2000 sessions and here's to the great artists we've worked and will someday work with!
