We've Got Music!

We've Got Music!

Great River Regional Library has a spectacular collection of music CDs that includes the very best new and old.

Each week we scan the reviews and requests, sometimes buying to fill a gap but mostly adding to the great music already there. The current New, Best & Fun list of recent purchases includes rap, jazz, rock, country, blues, bluegrass and more. The New, Best & Fun page is tabbed on the catalog. From there, click on the Music CDs list to see some of our recent purchases.

The Charles Bradley Menahan Street Band brings authentic soul on Victim Of Love; Lady Antebellum bring their popular country sound on Golden; and the Pistol Annies take country a little further south with Annie Up. But for something completely different and beautiful, try At Peace by Ballake Sissoko, modern music on traditional instruments from Mali. There's so much more to see and listen to. Check it out!
