This collection is Phenomenal! Baker has taken the best of the best and made them even better.
I had the sister missionaries over the other day. They spent their “P Day” (preparation day) at my house. While their laundry was washing and drying, I taught them how to make their own smash scrapbooks, to use to record all the ins and outs of their missions. We had a blast, and while we worked, we cranked up the music and listened to CLASSIC – The Rock Album.
I’ve always has a very eclectic taste in music (something that my husband and I share), so this collection really hit the spot. Classic rock music in full orchestration!
Baker is an incredibly talented musician, and now I’m hooked. I’ll be buying her other CD’s, for sure!
