Boys Don't Cry by Rumer LP Sweepstakes

Register to win one of 25 Boys Don't Cry by Rumer LPs (MSRP $24.98 each) we are giving away.

According to the press:

“We seem to be, in England, capable of bringing these singers out like Adele, Duffy, and Amy Winehouse and Now Rumer. People with extraordinary voices. They don’t come along that often and then you get one that comes along like Rumer’s. Just extraordinary, a beautiful voice. She’s going to be a huge star.” – Sir Elton John

"It is so nice to have a singer just sing a song without the frills and the diva tricks. Rumer really delivers the goods." – Burt Bacharach

"Rumer is wonderful, a real gutsy singer." – Carly Simon 

"Rumer (born Sarah Joyce) has one of those timeless, jazz-soul voices--like Norah Jones, Amy Winehouse, and Adele--that makes you stop and pay attention." – Vanity Fair

“We have a feeling she is about to break out into a league of her own very soon.” – Nylon

“A singer sure to become a stateside star later this year.” – New York Daily News

“The most exciting new talent of the moment.” – The Observer

“Stunning… the world really does need her songs.” – The Telegraph

“The hype is justified – this new singer is the real deal.” – The Sunday Times

“She’s more than a new discovery…the best act we’ve heard in ages.” – The Guardian

“Clearly well on her way to stardom… Rumer is stunning.” – The Independent

The best new voice of the year – MOJO Magazine

I always enjoy listening to a great singer and hope I am a winner.  I shy away from Karaoke clubs as I don't want to listen to people who can't sing!

Doctor A's picture

I have this on CD but need the vinyl to really hear her properly. She sounds a lot like a fusion of Karen Carpenter and Dusty Springfield - wonderful!!!!

Michael, on a different topic, has anyone complained that they are unable to enter text in the Comment box? I have only been able to post this message through a tricky workaround whereby
1) I pretype this message and copy the text
2) I enter the topic and click Preview
3) I have about 1 second window in which the Comment box is open, and then it turns grey and I cannot write in the box
4) In that 1 second window I have to try to paste the copied text and click Save
I’m using Windows Explorer 10, so my browser is current. I love this site, but this bug definitely precludes my participation. Thoughts from your webmaster?
