$6 music and my current obsession

    Music lovers have to love this deal, all CDs $5.99 with free shipping, no tax.

    http://www.yourmusic.com/enroll/enroll_200507.html

    After all that choice I can't understand why all I want to listen to is Liz Wright singing Stop, I'm Confessin', and anything else she decides to grace with her amazing voice . . . http://www.yourmusic.com/browse/album/Lizz-Wright--Dreaming-Wide-Awake-88380.html

    Sorry Cassandra Wilson, I do still truly love you.

    Eh. They don't have any Tool albums, and when I searched for them, they offered me Korn! No thanks, I'll pass. :grumpy:

    EDIT : They do, however, have lots of Dream Theater, but I already have most of their albums.

    Tool? Is that repairman music? Korn? Is that Midwest tunes? :confused:

    :rofl: Tool is probably the best alternative metal band out there, and has been for the last decade or so.

    Korn, they're just crap.

    What sort of music do you listen to anyway? Must be pretty mainstream if you can find most of it on that highly commercialised site.

    I was just teasing you. I listen to jazz, and especially lady jazz singers. That's what happens when you get close to 60 yo . . . you get into the mellow stuff, jazz and/or classical.

    Nice. :smile: Not that familiar with Jazz, but I like Ella.

    I do listen to a lot of Classical Music (mostly hate opera though).

    One of the reasons I like Dream Theater (another Alternative/Progressive Metal band) is because nearly all the band members are graduates of the Berkeley School of Music. It shows in their compositions and musicianship.

    Besides Ella Fitzgerald, there's Sarah Vaughn, Billie Holiday, and Lena Horne, and I like Mahalia Jackson, who is considered a gospel singer, but she did a little jazz.

    Here's a list of 50 great female jazz singers - http://www.waer.org/50women.html

    Patti Labelle was also a great singer, as is Aretha Franklin and Gladys Knight, who are more R&B and soul.

    Les, I guess you know about
    http://www.lizzwright.net/ - very nice - smooth :cool:
    http://www.bluenote.com/artistpage.asp?ArtistID=3273 :tongue2:

    And don't forget Annie Lennox who has been moving into new areas. She did a really nice rendition of Neil Young's Don't Let It Bring You Down.

    :biggrin: :cool:

    Only shipping to the US and nearby countries...oh well.
    Still a good deal if you're in the US. It'd be cool if there was something like this in Australia.

    That's really weird that there's no Tool or Perfect Circle. They're ten times more well known than The Agony Scene or even Dredg. Don't know why they would stock Andrew W.K. though.

    Way too limited. Checked The Shins. Nope. Checked Sigur Ros. Only two CDs. Oh well. I'll keep the site in mind.

    I believed they actually dropped out of Berkeley, though I might be mistaken.

    I hadn't seen them. Thanks. Is it possible fall in love with a voice? I am in despair because Lizz only has two albums. Cassandra is amazing too.


    Lizz Wright did Young's "Old Man," very nice. I didn't know that about Lennox. I love her voice. Thanks for the tip. Here's one for you (maybe I get lucky and turn you on to one you don't know about :tongue2:). "Some Cats Know, Jeanie Bryson sings songs of Peggy Lee" http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000003D5D/104-8933863-0439929?v=glance&n=5174
