Shiney Shoe Part lV

I love these shiney shoe discussions by MoChassid and other bloggers. In this latest post by Mo, he talks about Yosef Karduner's album. It cost a fraction of the latest album released by Yumi the Australian singing sensation ( doesn't that sound like a false editorial in a Jewish Magazine column?). It also is one of the better albums released lately, says Mo. I of course can't help but add my 5 cents to these ideas. Let be begin by saying this... Yumi's album and others like it, do cost more but there is a reason-he buys the songs/Karduner does not, he has a fully arranged album ( not that you like it)/Karduner does not, He must pay an arranger/ Karduner does not, he has 11 songs/ Karuner has but 9. His point though is well taken, you don't have to spend $30,000 to create a decent sounding album.
