Always read what it says on the box
I recently took delivery of a batch of CD's for review. Some of them found their way into our CD player in the car when we went away for the weekend; we often do this sort of pre-review listening. One disc gave us a real shock, expecting a soothing stream of Gregorian Chant what we got was wonderfully raucous and vibrant, polyphonic Georgian folk music (and sacred music). The disc is entitled Georgian Journey but of course, I'd read the title as Gregorian Journey. I'm glad I made the mistake as we both love the CD all ready. So some mistakes do have a happy ending. (The disc is on RAUMKLANG, RK-2304 1/2, the company's website is here, its title is Georgische Reise in German.
