ROSE, JON/ MARSHALL, HANNAH/ WESTON, VERYAN: Tuning out (dbl CD)

MORE NEW STUFF - HOW TO BUILD A LIBRARY

From each update I will select those CDs I think most remarkable or important - those which I think should be in any living library - and offer a discount for anyone buying them all. There will be 2 categories must have and essential history. Offers will be available for either or both together. If you find this essential library idea useful, I will slowly work backwards and compile a list from the whole catalogue.
