Had I money enough and time to listen to them all, I'd probably have about 20 or so CDs from cdRoots in constant rotation. This kind of music I just find more friendly, more real, more listenable to me.
I snagged this from the equally essential Cool Tools website. In his review, Kevin Kelly said, "This is the far end of the 'long tail' music scene." How up to the digital minute can you be?
