home / music Off The Clock Starbucks Compilation Cd Review
Reviewed on 2007-04-09
Off The Clock is a compilation of some of the best unheard talent, compliments of Starbucks Entertainment. The concept was created when hundreds of Starbucks Partners contacted their support center requesting their music be heard overhead in the storeís cafes. In 2006, Starbucks Entertainment requested submissions and received over eight hundred artistís demos. From there a group of judges chose the fifteen best songs that supported the Starbucks Entertainment venture.
This CD has a little something for everyone from Rock to Jazz to Pop. I found myself enjoying each song and am labeling it as one of the best in my collection. This CD is exclusive and is only available at company operated Starbucks stores. The proceeds from the sales of this CD go to benefit the CUP Fund & City Of Peace, so there is a little pride in knowing you get great music that gives back to the community. To preview the CD, go to www.hearmusic.com/offtheclock. From the site you can also vote on your favorite song to be featured on an upcoming CD with big name artists. I would highly recommend picking up a copy at your neighborhood Starbucks. This unique compilation will surely be one of your favorites too.
