I had this idea today that might be very helpfull to the readers of this blog.
I gathered as many links as possible, to the bands’ releases for everyone to have a listen to or in any case to buy or download whatever might be of interest.
As you may see all links come from CD Baby.
The artists describe their releases in their own words (NOT MINE) …
