Awesome - Thanks CD Baby for your selection of music!
We thrilled my wife's uncle with this CD as a Christmas present. Thanks for having such a wonderful music selection! We could only find this CD at your website. Keep up the good work of keeping music history alive and well. Can't wait to shop your store again!
