What I'm Listening to: Vol. 8

One of the local pawn shops recently had a sale on all their CDs: $1 each! So, you know I had to take advantage of that. The rest I ordered from either or bought at Half Priced Books. LOTS of good stuff this time around. Very few duds (with the exception of the Curtis Mayfield CD. It's not even him singing on most of the songs!).

If you aren't familiar with the Hotel Costes CD series, I highly recommend you check them out. They may be a little pricier than the average CD, but they are a sure thing e-v-e-r-y time (that includes all the tracks as well). Guaranteed smooth, chill out music. Think: Ambient meets New Age Lounge with a hint of Electronica. Not dance music, but music for when you want to chill out and drift away. I recommend volumes 1, 3, 4, 6 and 7. Those are the ones I've heard and own. Sooooo good. Also, my most recent purchases (the last 3 CD titles) are all really good. Especially if you like Samba, Lounge and Dance Remixes. Four stars!
