understand music much better kudos Leyla!!!"

The sound is rich and velvety, inspirational to dance to and luxurious just to listen to. LOVE IT!" and
"All the songs are danceable! Usually there are 1 or 2 songs on a cd that are usable but this is all
good stuff. I've been playing it practically continuously since it arrived."
