I have a legitimate website that I download songs from, other than Amazon. I just downloaded every Con Funk Shun album completely remastered for less than $10.55 for all of them collectively.

I listened to the CD three times, without interruption and never once felt the urge to hit the skip button (though I did succumb to the urge of the repeat button on a few songs). What I like about Ms. Jill is that she continues to grow in her poetic expressions and her music. She is never content with the same old formula, nor is… Read more
There are a quite a few songs that belong on the soundtrack of my life. This group of songs represents the instrumental, or semi-instrumental portion of that soundtrack. Some are thumping, spicy, hip, funky pieces that require a head bop or a light booty shake, some are snap your fingers, nod&hellip Read more
Sometimes soundtracks are a mixed bag of various artists, in some cases an assortment of pieces put together for a desired effect.
