Beautiful recording of lovely contemporary songs
To me the yardstick of a recording is the number of times it's replayed. In this case, I keep it in my car and play a portion of it almost daily. It has a wonderfully uplifting effect, giving me energy and optimism. I consider it to be a real treasure.
