Songs you really have to hear
As a proud owner of a MZ-R50, I never stop using it. I used to use my personal cassette player/radio quite
a lot, but not this much. I also have a large CD collection (well into four figures!), so I am making a fair
few compilation discs. So what?
Well, I am in awe of the quality of sound produced from such a little unit with the right headphones. So much that I am hearing things
in certain songs that I've never noticed before. This has resulted in my must hear song snippet list.
Of course, it's better to listen to the whole of each of the featured albums to get the fuller picture.
