Sorry for not getting back to you sooner.
The Caerthe Dance Hits CD is something my lord husband and I compiled
from our CD collection. It was never for sale, due to copyright issues
-- we have given away a copy or two, but because we would like to
support our favorite musicians (keeping them in business as well as
providing them with incentive to do more), we don't want to give away
too many copies.
That said, I will add that most of the CDs we took tracks from are still
in print, and Guillaume is even now working up a list of CDs and where
to find them. We'll post a link to that list as soon as we have it
Meanwhile ... Much of the music we use is available very cheaply from
Eric Praetzel's web site. You can buy copies of several good dance CDs
from him for $3 each (postage included), at
http://sca.uwaterloo.ca/~praetzel/CD-offer.html, or if you're too
impatient to wait for mail order, you can download many of the tracks
for free and create your own discs at
http://ieee.uwaterloo.ca/praetzel/mp3-cd/index.html. Please note that
much of the music on his site is free; however, some tracks do require a
royalty. You can get an awful lot of good stuff for free, though!
p.s. Sorry we were unable to attend the masked ball ... it sounds like
it was a lot of fun, and I even had a mask to wear, but we had
commitments here in Caerthe for the weekend ...
