Valerie and her week of Wonders

I love the book and the movie Valerie and her week of wonders. It's a surreal poetic experience. Finders Keepers is a great company. They released the amazing Sarolta Zaltnay cd. She's a wonderful Hungarian rocker. Anyway when I found they released Valerie I bought it. I'm not much into classical music but Valerie in an exception, a wonderful mood piece. I play it all the time. Great music

Simon Sisters Winkin', Blinkin' and Nod

This is an excellent collection of the Simon Sisters years released by Hip-o-select records. It's the group that Carly was in before her solo career. This is folky completely different from her solo work. Her sister Lucy who later wrote the score for The Secret Garden musical sings with her. I'm curious about her solo 70's album. I love Winkin', Blinkin' and Nod. It's a whimsical track. So Glad I'm here has a catchy uptempo beat. This is an interesting look at Carly's career before You're so Vain.
