What you're about to read is a collection of pointers to some of the music I've discovered on the iTunes Music Store, music I like enough that I want to share it. If you're an iPod owner and an iTunes fan (and if you aren't, what are you doing here?), maybe you'll find something new. Click on any of the CD covers to bounce over to the store and sample a few tracks. And then maybe stop by my other blog for a few well chosen words (and maybe a random snark or two).RSS feed

Handpicked / Marilyn Scott
Handpicked I discovered Marilyn Scott through mere happenstance. A coworker had received a box full of CDs from a friend at a record label and was sharing the wealth. Not knowing any of the artists represented, I picked a few based on their cover art. Ms. Scott was (and is) pretty and blonde, which seemed reason enough to choose Smile. Yeah, I'm shallow. Although in my own defense, I will suggest that my coworker's own degree of pretty and blonde likely was responsible for the arrival of that box of music.

Anyway, that was ten years ago. And yet somehow Marilyn Scott has matured but not aged; her voice is as compelling now as it was then. I wish the years had been half so kind to me.
