"Divas" CD by Pottery Barn
Compilation CD's can be hit or miss, but may mask some hidden treasures. As PIC (person in charge) of the music collection in our BookStore, I try to keep up with cleaning the incoming CD's and making sure they play o.k. and look appealing too. While going through the latest contributions, I had the pleasure to try out a compilation by Pottery Barn called "Divas." Now, I'd expect that to be opera stars, and I was pleasantly surprised to find some rarely heard tracks by Aretha, Ella, Pearl, Dinah, Eartha, and Etta, among others. Nice surprise, and currently on display in the BookStore, subject to prior sale.
