Award winning singer/songwriter Tokyo Rosenthal announced today that in light of the hard economic times the world over that he would offer free downloads of his original recording, "Mister Tell Me 'Bout ". This is being done in conjunction with Rosenthal's record label, Rock & Sock Records and is available on Rosenthal's web site(www.tokyorosenthal.com). The song also appears on Tokyo's latest CD, "Ghosts", which recently was number Five (5) on The Euro Americana Chart and has received rave reviews and airplay the world over.
Rosenthal's tune documents the causes for the economic turmoil that has become a global phenomenon. "It was inspired by the stories my grandfather, 'Poppy Jack', used to tell me about the 1929-1939 Depression," said Rosenthal. "But this song is about now. And it's futuristic. Picture a young man sitting on the door step of his neighbor asking what happened back in 2009-2010. Hopefully he's not saying 2009-2019!"
Critics such as No Depression said, "It's a song for these times, for all time, and big thanks to him for writing it." Americana UK was even more direct as they said,"Epic!, This song truly has balls".
Rosenthal felt that offering the tune at no charge was the best way to get his message across and at the same time make it affordable to all who want to have it and pass it on. "I hope people the world over take advantage of this opportunity and both like the song musically and relate to some if not all of what I'm saying," Tokyo added.
Rosenthal, along with Charlie Chamberlain on mandolin and guitar, just completed his fourth tour of the United Kingdom and his planning a 40 city US Tour beginning in
