Please note!
Most of our CDs have been imported from Europe or Asia. They are not all shrink-wrapped, and I am not going to con you by wrapping them here just to make you think they have been sterilized in America. I guarantee that the CDs and the contents are all brand new and in perfect condition. Whenever I can, I use recycled shipping materials. They may not look as pretty on the outside, but they save money and keep the trash dumps a little bit emptier.
Thanks- Cliff, cdRoots

cdRoots: Who are we?

First I guess you ought to know there is no we, just an I, one person with an insatiable interest in music, from near and far.

cdRoots is not the biggest music store on the web. I do not try to carry everything available in any genre or from any country.

I like the music I carry and I hope to offer you a crack in the window on the world, a small earful of the incredible music being made far away from the mainstream. The CDs you will find here are often personal favorites, unusual music that often defies a simple naming of genre. Some is very traditional, from places you hear little about, and ought to hear more. Some is extremely avant garde, making its own rules as it goes. My favorites combine deep traditional roots with wild and innovative energy. What they all share is a human touch, a personality that goes beyond the mere making of music and into the very heart of art. That's a mighty high plateau to rise to, but I think the music you will find here attains that goal.

Thanks for visiting and enjoy the music.
