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

Everything's Fine / Alice Ripley
Everything's Fine Being a big fan of live theater, including the musical kind, I have a pretty good collection of both cast albums and individual recordings by performers who particularly impressed me. Those latter albums tend to be hit or miss for me; I enjoy the performers but am not always crazy about their choice of material. Everything's Fine is a surprise in that regard. Rather than a collection of Broadway standards or piano bar stuff, Ms. Ripley has recorded her own creations. And even her performance is rather a surprise; it doesn't shout Broadway, if you know what I mean. In fact, hearing her for the first time (well, the second; I didn't recognize her from her role in The Who's Tommy), the idea that she was a stage performer never had the thought of becoming an inkling in my mind. And that's a good thing, although I'd be glad of the chance to see and hear her on the stage again. Especially now that I know what I'm looking and listening for.
