Spring Records 2009
Rainy forecast for the next few days? Check.
Filthy glaciers melting through every curbside drain? Check.
Springtime Super Moose?!?!? Double check!
Yes, Spring is back… and to celebrate I’ve prepared a few dewy selections that should either reconnect you with a side of nature long buried, or give you a soundtrack to dance your winter clothes off to. Instead of resorting to Spring CDs of previous years as I did in 2008, I’ve opted to make this post a current affair.

Thank you to those who kept count with me (or for me, I suspect) and ensured I stay on the straight and narrow (that’s you, CGreen!).
Without further delay, here are two Spring CDs worth testing out...
