Check here each week for my thoughts on CDs and vinyl recordings in my collection as well as those I’ve recently added. Once something catches my eye, I generally look for and purchase those on sale as “used in good condition.” On occasion, I get a “lemon” and have to send it back and ask that it be replaced. Check them out on the internet and listen to learn if they’re worth adding to your personal collection.

I stumbled upon this compilation while looking for recording featuring women’s voices from around the globe. After spending several days listening to it, I’m convinced it is one of the finest international representations of women’s voices you can find. –Jonathan
