I finally got around to ordering a stereo and it arrived yesterday. nausicaa1 and other friends sent CDs in response to my heartfelt request for new music, and I blasted those at a discreet but loud volume. Thanks, all! I inaugurated the new CD-player with favorites that I haven’t heard in months:
* KT Tunstall – Eye to the Telescope (yet another broody female vocalist)
* Nancy Ajram – Ya Salam (otherwise Arabic music sounds alike to me)
* Femi Kuti – Greatest Hits (best African dance music ever)
Maybe someday we'll get the huge home entertainment system with speakers wired in every room and a multiple CD changer, but for now this more than suffices for bouncing around the living room.
