the last few orders that i have put through to grassroots have been riddled with problems to the point where have considered not buying from them anymore. time delays and incomplete orders where foreign to my experience with them until these last 3 orders. apparently they were moving facilities and this caused a time period of disarray. but alas they have redeemed themselves with this last order.
they tempted me with a cornucopia of close outs on a bunch of their independent releases and i was not strong enough to resist. so, i ordered 24 cd’s from them praying that they had gotten their act together. sure enough, the order has come in a day after shipped and a mere two business-days after I ordered ’em, without a cd missing from the bunch. excellent customer service has indeed returned to my favorite provider of independent Christian music.
i just hope that they are doing ok. i have heard rumors of financial problems at the company. i really hope that is not the case as i have found that grassroots has been invaluable in offering regional, independent offerings of the singer/song writer variety. stuff you just cannot find anywhere else.
i am concerned though, why are they clearing out so much good music at such cheap prices? i am not complaining about the windfall to my personal collection but i am worried that this resource that i have used for something like 7 or 8 years now, will soon not be with us. will i be condemned to what gets spoon-fed from the man, corporate music? i sure hope not. at least we still have pastemusic.com. even so, long live grassrootsmusic.com and the independent, folksy music they stand for!
