You read it first On An Overgrown Path

At least Norman Lebrecht was right when he wrote above that "the one blog that aims to break news, and occasionally does, is On An Overgrown Path."

On Sunday Nov 12 On An Overgrown Path sung the praises of Catherine Bott's new CD Convivencia in a big article about the new FRED label.

Six days later, on Friday Nov 17, Lebrecht's CD of the week was ....... Catherine Bott's new CD Convivencia.

And while on the subject, last week Lebrecht accused On An Overgrown Path of having "a bug about the BBC."

This week Norman devotes 936 words to ....... the BBC.
