I was going to mention that I went into Barnes & Noble the other day and
they have these new machines to preview music.  Instead of the old ones that
let you listen to half a dozen different CDs at each station, these let you
scan any CD and get samples.  I got to a "featured artist" page and Rachel's
new CD was mentioned prominently.  I chose it to listen to a sample and the
first one was a spoken introduction by the artist.  She's got a really heavy
London accent of the pseudo-Cockney variety that has been so trendy for the
last ten years or so.  I only listened to enough of the music (ten seconds
or so) to know it's not really my cup of tea.  But I'm glad she's getting
some publicity.  I just tried to find something similar on the B&N website
and couldn't see anything, though.
