Brad Paisley continues to rock the juke box or was that Alan Jackson. Doesn't matter. This is another great CD from the first trak to the last. Each song is its slice of life.

The Complete Releases 1955 - 1962 Patsy Cline

Staff Comment
Patsy Cline had the quintessential voice of Country Music from the mid-1950 to the mid-1960. To me she was the best of all times. This collection captures the heart and soul, not only of an artist or a time period but of an entire opus of a music genre. Patsy Cline lives on today in this multi-disc CD collection of her music.

Author
Jimmy Buffett

Staff Comment
Jimmy Buffett weaves the story of the songs with these 'lost recordings' of his early years. Not what I expected but is a diamond in the ruff.

Kid A

Radiohead

Staff Comment
This self-reinvention of Radiohead's sound released in 2000 came off the heels of their successful album "OK Computer" - Beautiful mix of acoustic instruments and synth-based sounds.
