narinig ko si rachel gerodias in that brass band album of gerard salonga. her version of sa kabukiran is vibrant, youthful. (of course susan fuentes' is the epitome of clarity and sylvia la torre's is simply inspiring.) more reviews and raves please. leave to zafra (and thousand other bloggers) the rage and rants. R&R by the way, is soooo grunge. by the way, ano na ang development doon sa pinapahanap ko saiyong 13-CD collection ni carmencita lozada. give me a lead, i need to order them. salamat.
