I subscribe to a couple of audio magazines and they do offer a limited number of recording reviews each month but years ago I remember getting a monthly primarily devoted to reviewing musical offerings on CD.
They all so sold CD samplers from a multitude of indie labels/artists, several of which I purchased and enjoyed and this is the reason that I became a fan of the lovely and talented Connie Dover.
I have been unable to find it at my local book shoppe, and a some what cursory search of the internet did not (yet) show that the mag is still available all though I did see a couple of artists that listed CD Review "music samplers" from the 90s.
Does any one here remember this magazine, and is it still available for purchase/subscription? Perhaps there is a magazine with a similar mission that is out there, and if so, please let me know it's name.
