I checked out the it! I have been looking for some new tunes to put on my MP3 player for the HOURS I spend in my truck every day! My truck has an auxillary jack so I can plug the MP3 player right into the main system...beautiful.

PS - new Xavier Rudd album is out but I can't find it anywhere! Checked out the new single (Better People) on his website:

Thanks for the tip Miriam, love his stuff. I've been listening to a lot of cool music lately including some cool 30s blues a friend put me on to. Blind Willie McTell. If I find Rudd I'll let you know!
