CELTIC PSALMS: MUSIC TO SOOTHE THE SOUL (Tabitha Fair / Deirdre Neely Close)
Several years ago I thought it would be a brilliant idea to go "all digital" with my music collection. I ended up selling 90% of my physical media and listened to all music on digital devices. Needless to say, that was a foolish decision on my part as I began to severely miss the actual CD or LP that I could handle, read, look at the pictures inside and ultimately call my own. As many know, I've reacquired all I previously had, as well as several hundred MORE albums in my CD/LP library.
All except one. I really regret selling/trading this CD as it apparently is rather rare, as is clear from the high prices being asked IF you CAN find it. And here's the funny part, it's not like it's a classic metal album, or a very old rarity... no, it's a simple worship album done by an incredibly talented woman named Tabitha fair as a part of a Scripture songs series called CELTIC PSALMS: MUSIC TO SOOTHE THE SOUL.
There have been a million albums "like" this made and most are very simple, cookie cutter albums that couldn't even get 25 cents at a yard sale.
However, THIS album was a one time deal for Tabitha and contained some of THE most beautiful music I've ever heard. Very similar to Enya and Maire Brennan, just that ethereal angelic sound that I loved since I bought it brand new. It holds very nostalgic meaning to me. I spent countless hours in personal Bible study listening to it in the background. Also used it as my morning alarm - it helped me gently wake up, as opposed to a loud annoying alarm.
I assumed back when I went all digital, that if I ever wanted another one some day, that it'd probably be cheap, like a 1 penny album on Amazon... I was wrong. I've been trying to get another one for the last 3 years now. I've seen it as high as 40 bucks, and cheapest at 26. Yes, I am cheap and don't want to pay more than 10 bucks, but if no one else out there has a copy, then one day I may have to splurge and get it. I could kick myself for getting rid of it when I did.
If anyone has this CD, or knows where I can get an original of it for less than 15 bucks, please let me know :-)
