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

Music from the Orkney Islands / Allie Windwick & Hugh Inkster
Music has the power to evoke a time and a place, to take us somewhere we've never been and can't even imagine. And so it is with this 1979 recording of a combination of traditional and more contemporary songs (and I dare you to tell one from the other) from the Orkney Islands, ostensibly part of Scotland but, if the album's liner notes and Wikipedia are to be believed, really a world of their own. And one I suddenly have a strong desire to visit, if only the need to actually show up for work tomorrow weren't so very strong. Curse you, 21st century employment! Curse you and all your kind!

Maybe one day...
