Edith Piaf, born in the belly of the blues.

That’s a good score. Substitute metal or jazz for blues and you’d really have something.

Good question - I have recently culled maybe 600 - 700 Cd's for Accord, but at this rate, I won't deplete much.

The Covid Collection :o

The same fate will befall the collections of many folk on here 20 years hence!

The Fred Neil compilation on Raven is a good one
