Please note!
Most of our CDs have been imported from Europe or Asia. They are not all shrink-wrapped, and I am not going to con you by wrapping them here just to make you think they have been sterilized in America. I guarantee that the CDs and the contents are all brand new and in perfect condition. Whenever I can, I use recycled shipping materials. They may not look as pretty on the outside, but they save money and keep the trash dumps a little bit emptier.
Thanks- Cliff, cdRoots

Anja Praest Mikkelsen - Hemmeligheden / The Secret

Peter Stampfel and the Bottlecaps - The Jig Is Up
H.M. Rounder Peter Stampfel is back again, in a series of recordings made 1989–1999 with a host of different musicians, but all pulled together by his insatiable, exploratory lust for good songs, odd ideas and bizarre juxtapositions (and a Quicktime video clip, too!).

Uhrbrand-Lydom-Cahill - Spring, with Mats Vingin and Peter Rosendal
Originally formed as a trio in 1998. Peter Uhrbrand, Sonnich Lydom and Sèamus Cahill has now been joined by two outstanding jazz musicians Mads Vinding (bass) and Peter Rosendal (piano) in what can only be described as a rare meeting of musical genres, that of folk and jazz. In a sense Spring is not only a meeting of different musical styles, but also a meeting of the great traditions of Nordic and Celtic music. One of the band members is an Irishman now settled in Denmark and so it seemed natural that songs from the Irish tradition should also be included on this CD. ULC's choice of material blends beautifully together.

The majority are on CD for the first time.
