All of these are absolutely Grade A excellent throughout; no songs that bore me or
make me press fast-forward.  I wouldn't steer you wrong!  This is not a
ranking...also, I am by no means implying that other albums by these artists are not
worthy of consideration or that unmentioned artists are bad...just if you pick one of
these up at
CDNow or someplace you won't be disappointed.
