Our sincere apologies to readers and followers of this blog ... the last few months have been particularly busy for us, leaving us significantly less time to do any critical listening and hence less time to post reviews.  The last of my big work deadlines is this week, so stay tuned for a new round of great LP reviews going into the new year!

Happy holidays to all!
