Free Billy Collins!

No, Billy is not trapped or jailed.

It's his CD, The Best Cigarette. It's a great CD of him reading. There are 33 tracks that are now available for free. No more CDs available.

We gave Billy some grief here about his expensive little haiku book, but then he goes and gives us this freebie.

Go to Internet Archive http://www.archive.org/details/BillyCollinsTheBestCigarette and download the whole album or get the tracks selectively one by one.

It's also available track by track at http://music.download.com/billycollins

Both sites will also lead you to some other great free downloads.

You can download, share these, burn these, give these for non-commerical puposes (you can't make money off it).
