Since September 2010, this blog has recorded the journey of this middle-aged man as I attempt to listen to all the music in my CD collection. CDs revisited in their entirety from start to finish - no skipping tracks, no shuffle. CDs only - no vinyl, no tapes, no downloads. And just as CD technology (and the album format itself) becomes obsolete. I'm no music critic, just a music junkie with too much time on my hands.

Liz Story - Escape of the Circus Ponies (1990)
Perfect melancholy, relaxing music for a cool, rainy day (even though it's sunny, dry, and 90° as I listen and write this). I've enjoyed the New Age piano improvisational noodlings on Story's 1988 album Speechless for almost 25 years, so whenever I see a Story CD from around that time in the used CD bin, I'll pick it up. This is every bit as good as Speechless, but I guess that earlier album was just the right music at the right time because I continue to prefer it to Story's other work. That's how it goes sometimes.
Peak on the US Billboard Top 200 chart: Did not chart
Tracks: 9 tracks, 50 minutes. My picks here are Broken Arrow Drive and Church Of Trees. Skip the title cut and Another Shore.
Personal Memory Associated with this CD: None
Previously revisited for the blog:
