    I've been eyeing up the a copy of the Celia and Johnny album. It would be great to have a special addition.

    Classics is probably my favourite part of VMP. A definite must get every month. Great work.

    Love Celia. I have two (both?) celia and johnnys. But if you see my avatar, you can maybe guess my preferences are parochial. For a female from PR who should be on Fania or sister label Vaya, check out Miki Vimari...

    Oooh, I'm always down for deep catalogue searches. I'm Cuban American so, obviously, Celia Cruz is basically the holy mother.

    And I thought I loved VMP before, but then Classics.

    One of the things that has been most important to me over the past few years has been exploring more female artists. As a Dad of 3 daughters I’ve recently become very conscious of how male-heavy my listening habits and collection have been. My girls have been great at opening me up to new female artists, and through Classics, VMP has done an outstanding job of introducing me to important female artists in genres where I think male artists have received most of the attention over the years.

    I missed Alice...still kicking myself. But loved Carla and am so excited for Koko! Between my daughters and VMP, I feel like I’m on a whole new musical journey at 40-something, and I’m so thankful for it. I second this, Great work!!

    As I’ve gotten older (40-something dad of 3 boys) I find myself listening to female artists more often. For the last few years my annual top ten lists have been dominated by women and this year is no different—Waxahatchee, Jen Cloher, Big Thief, St. Vincent, Sheer Mag...

    Please also listen to and/or add Bedouine, Valerie June, Haim, Jay Som, Vagabon, Alex Lahey, Feist, Molly Burch, Land of Talk, Tennis, Girlpool, Nicole Atkins, Offa Rex...

    The first 5 are somewhere on my top 10 this year.
