|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.

Turns out to have been a track on a not quite released Telarc CD from the Cincinnati Pops. Needless to say, the moment I could get my hands on a copy, I did.
There's lots of good stuff on here, especially if you like classic themes given the full pops orchestra treatment. And not just from the Bond movies, although they're well represented. Lots of other movies, and some TV stuff too.
I'm glad to see Telarc finally represented on the iTMS. Now if we can just get some of their science fictional CDs...
