“Folk Singer’s Sweet Bye-and-Bye” hits Number One; “Side Effects” is now Number Two on Charts!

Saturday, January 17th, 2009

John Sprung’s tribute to folk singers who have passed on to their final reward, “The Folk Singer’s Sweet Bye-and-Bye,” (from his latest album, “Side Effects,”) is the Number One song in sales on CD Baby among songs in the Political Folk category. No, not quite the “Billboard” or “Cashbox” charts, but the latest CD baby sales charts for the “Political Folk” category (which lists the top 477 CDs), reported “Side Effects,” “weighing in” several months ago at number 39. As of the 08/17/09 survey, the album is now number 2 in sales, trailing only Holly Near’s latest album. John is most appreciative for the many people world-wide who have supported his new CD. It was his hope that “Side Effects” would be available to listeners on a broad scale, and he is very pleased that CD Baby has provided this opportunity.
