'CD Baby loves Clare.'

Following a suggestion made by 'DC Peaches' I investigated the website of Antje Duvelot and loved the snatches I heard so much I ordered one of her CDs from an independent firm called CD Baby.

I just received confirmation that the order had been sent out (email titled as above) and think it so funny I am copying it here...

'Your CD has been gently taken from our CD Baby shelves with sterilized contamination-free gloves and placed onto a satin pillow.

A team of 50 employees inspected your CD and polished it to make sure it was in the best possible condition before mailing.

Our packing specialist from Japan lit a candle and a hush fell over the crowd as he put your CD into the finest gold-lined box that money can buy.

We all had a wonderful celebration afterwards and the whole party marched down the street to the post office where the entire town of Portland waved 'Bon Voyage!' to your package, on its way to you, in our private CD Baby jet on this day, Saturday, January 14th.

I hope you had a wonderful time shopping at CD Baby. We sure did. Your picture is on our wall as 'Customer of the Year'. We're all exhausted but can't wait for you to come back to CDBABY.COM!!'

I've gotten that message too, and I also felt immediately compelled to blog about it. They have a great work ethic and sense of humor.
