Hello, kind readers. Now that I have the production process streamlined, I thought it might be worth reflecting a moment on the potential of Rhythm Connection. My record collection is not huge, perhaps only hundreds from the African diaspora. Yet the records are mostly pristine, played only once or twice after purchasing them new. Most were bought in the wonderful shops in the Bay Area, but I also collected some during a year in Brixton, and on a couple of trips to southern Africa.

Most of my collection languished in boxes for over 15 years! Exploring this online community of music lovers rekindled my passion, though, and as I greedily consumed fresh, wonderful offerings by those kindred (and inspirational) blogs along the left side of this page, I also began to explore my own collection. And I wanted to be able to give back to this generous community.
I'm pleased with the result. My recordings sound great, at least to me. I hope to post a couple of albums a week. Sadly, by the time I get through my record collection, CDs may be obsolete; yet then, and not until then, there may be a whole world of out-of-print CDs to share!
