Ah, a wonderful time putting this together. Even though I have switched to a streaming service (MOG), we’ll see if that changes the way I rate and am able to go back and find out what records I really fell in love with. Added bonus of youtube performance link from Claire. Open in iPod’s to see all the links and other goodies.
