Would You Like Some Music, Little Girl?

Would You Like Some Music, Little Girl?

Iz spent this past weekend at a Daddy-daughter campout with her friends Fifi and Violet. The campers played music, got absolutely filthy with trail dust and creek mud, and celebrated Fifi's birthday. The week before, her mother had written me saying that Fifi would really like more music from us. So, because I'm pretty sure Armada and her partner Craig will approve, I sent the birthday girl a selection of songs that I would let my kids listen to (below). You might notice that I've not collected much new music in the past 15 years or so. If your kids want copies (two CD's), let me know.
