This is wonderful! I think your next career should be soundtrack compilation king. I must admit to feeling a bit intimidated at the thought of having to come up with all that music. But I might give it a go. And how do you know Joan Armatrading? I haven't heard anyone talk of her since I lived in the UK in the 80s. I have Love and Affection on my mp3 player and I think your choice of it is perfect. :)

I didn't know about the librarything widget till I saw it in your sidebar, so we're even :)

I like your selections... haven't seen Natalie MacMaster's name in years! Must listen to her again. I first heard Get Me through December - which Allison Krauss sang on - on the TV show Felicity. I love that Cape Breton sound - her cousin Ashley MacIsaac is great too. Have you heard Kate Rusby? Similar Celtic-tinged folk & her voice is amazing.

Thanks for playing :)
