Free CDs

In my continuing efforts to find volunteer reviewers who will actually write reviews, this is my latest tack.  All of the wonderful CDs you see below are currently in my possession and available to be shipped to your mailbox.  The rules are this:  You can request up to 3; first e-mail request wins (list a couple of alternatives in case somebody else has beaten you to your first choice).  You have one week per CD to write and post a review on the CD page and you must agree to accept one CD of my choice for every one of your choice.  You pick three then I pick three, not necessarily from the batch pictured here which means you might get some dogs.  You have two weeks for each of my choices.  Failure to meet the rules simply means you don’t get to play next time.  Meeting the rules means you’ll never have to buy a CD again. Send your reservations to me here.
