Yeah, well, I mailed it myself (last Wednesday) from Middle-Of-Nowehere-USA rather than having Amazon or any other online retailer fulfill the order for me, so it may take a bit longer to get to you (as well as my official gift-exchange partner)...

Nice you got them so fast guys, I hope you'll enjoy them. Both cd's are pretty special to me, Lost in America (once given to me by a die hard Neil Young fan) is one of those 10 cd's I'd bring with me on a desert island.

 

When I got one of yours, I'll post immediately..

got a chance to listen to it and is very good.  its got a kind of east coast alt-country thing going on.  thank you!  btw, if you love Lost In America you should check out Ryan Adams.  definitely in the same vein.

This looked interesting so I thought I'd check it out. I'm listening to it now (thanks MOG) and enjoying it very much - what a wonderful album!

It's nice that so many people participated and put real thought into their choices. 

 

Keep the forum going - I want to listen to more!

Got Kate Bush's "Never For Ever" from tjohnusa.  Definitely an interesting listen...excellent sound quality and she's a hell of a songwriter.  I have always been tempted to get a Kate Bush CD but I've always chickened out. 

 

Now I've been pushed over the edge and falling isn't bad at all.  wink.gif

Yeah, folk to folk-rock. I have the dubious distinction of having lived through most of the rock'nroll era, and have to admit I'm 80% burnt out on rock.

Mine arrived from customcoco a day or two ago.

 

Elgar - Enigma Variations; Introduction & Allegro (LSO, Davis)

 

Believe it or not my first classical CD, I'm really enjoying it. That's the best thing about these exchanges it gives you chance to listen to music you would normally never buy. The sound quality on this is fantastic. It's also the Hybrid SACD Version.

Kate Bush is a goddess. Just saying.

One of my gifts just arrived:

... and many thanks to either Vaati or Ultainferno, since the packaging did not say who the sender was.  I suspect it is from Vaati, given the longer Belgium-to-USA transit time, but thanks to whomever regardless. 

 

I confess to being unfamiliar with Lisa, but being nearly 60 years old, I am unfamiliar with 90% of the musical artists mentioned here on Head-Fi (still don't know what "dubstep" really is), so it is always good to learn something new. I haven't broken the shrink wrap on the disc yet, but have been reading about Lisa on Wikipedia, where I always go to get background information on something that is new to me.  Sounds really interesting.  I'll try to share a listening impression later when I have the time, but just wanted to acknowledge receipt and thank the sender.

My gift from mwilson just arrived: Vangelis - El Greco

36298111.jpg

I know his music mostly in relation to Conquest of Paradise. I just popped this in and am enjoying it!

Thanks mwilson!

And of course, thanking Head-Fi and the organisers once again for another year of a great tradition.
