So, of course you know that Jack Johnson rocks. I've been a fan since...well, Brushfire Fiarytales. I loved it so much, I wanted more - and I also wanted to share.
Jack is one of a few artist who allow "taping" of his shows (what Live Music Archive calls "trade-friendly") and the tapers would make CD's of his shows and trade it. In a few interviews, he even acknowledged that a lot of his success is due to his fans "passing around" his music. I know I did my share of making sure people knew about him. One of his best live shows is the one right here in Berkeley: Greek Theater, back in 2001. He was an unknown then - but the music, was great.
