I grew up in southeastern Ohio, spent 4 years as a nomadic seasonal archaeologist, and am currently in northern Utah working on my MS in archaeology, emphasizing in geoarchaeology.

I started collecting CDs when I was 12, and any money I came into possession was invested into my passion for classical and folk music. When I acquired my mother's old LP collection in 2014, I got hooked on vinyl! My tastes are always expanding and changing, and my musical curiosity is always seeking new stimulation. But I'm still probably still most passionate about classical music (especially early music), as well as folk music from America and the rest of the world. And finding fabulously odd or weird recordings always make me happy!

I have many other hobbies that occupy my time as well. I'm a leader in advanced alpine cave exploration here in Utah, and I'm also a textile artisan. I process wool, spin my own yarn, create dyes from wild plants I collect in the desert and mountains, and I knit, crochet, and weave (on a backstrap loom I built). I'm also a classically trained singer and violinist (though I play mostly fiddle tunes these days).

I ordered mine on July 24 and am still waiting as well. I live in Utah, and am assuming that part of it must just be the shipping distance.

The copy I purchased did not include the notes that were apparently originally included with the LP. I'd love it if someone with a copy of the notes could upload pictures of them to satisfy my (and I'm sure others who don't have the notes) curiosity ... See full review
