Better Off Dead is my favorite musical "find" of 2011.

This Jersey City, NJ-based group performs clever, well-written songs that are loaded with catchy hooks and lyrics. Some songs are bluesy, some are twangy, and some are Bill Haley-like rock and roll...but one common thread among the songs is that they're all really good!

Please support Better Off Dead by seeing them perform live and by buying their CDs. The band has 3 full-lenghth CDs available through its website and I can heartily recommend all of them.

Thanks again to V.D. King for allowing me to record this show for posterity.

If you like this torrent, won't you please take a moment to post a comment on the board? It only takes a moment, and believe me, it takes A LOT longer to prepare/upload a show for others to enjoy than it does to download and run.
