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

Mirrors / Sally Oldfield
I can still remember the very first time I heard Sally Oldfield. It would have been 1985 or so. I was living in Los Angeles and was taking a drive one weekend up to Santa Barbara. In those pre-CD days, at least for me, I was limited to what I could find on the radio. So I was spinning the dial (not literally; I'm pretty sure I had a Scan button rather than a dial) until I came upon an alternative music station. And out of my radio came the most amazing voice. I don't remember which song it was. Might have been Mandala. Or maybe it was Sun in My Eyes. But whichever song it was, I was transfixed. I found a greatest hits collection a while later, and then Mirrors. And Ms. Oldfield's music has been part of my rotation ever since, first in my CD case and now in my iPod. I'll never understand how such an amazing and original talent can fail to catch on in this country. Then again, there are a lot of things I'll never understand about this country. Mirrors
