All: I hope SoundRoots' absence in recent days hasn't caused too much concern. I've been dealing with a computer problem that I hope to have resolved in the next few days. I'll post if I can before then, but my ability to access music and publish websites is hampered at present. The good news is that I have lots of interesting CDs and DVDs to tell you about, as well as a best of 2009 list to compile. I'm also thinking of putting together a best of 00's list of global music from the past decade. Nominations, comments, or suggestions are most welcome.
