Vinyl

I am really digging listening to vinyl again. I grew up listening to records. Lifting the tonearm, dropping the needle, hearing the crackle and ch-chk sound at the end of the side.  I listened to records so much that when I heard a particular song, my brain expected the next song even if I heard it on the radio. When CD's came around I really loved the 'random' feature. But it came at a price.  I stopped listening to whole albums. I would just jump around, or listen to my favourites and not give the other songs a chance. Granted there were years and years of records with a lot of filler.

So now I am buying records again and listening to them a side at a time. I also find that because I have to be around when the side finishes, I actually LISTEN to the music!

More photos coming too...

As I have some time in the calm of summer, I will start organizing some more photos for uploading. I really want to show you the Languedoc!

I've also been on a HUGE 70's music kick. Foreigner, Eagles, ABBA, Cheap Trick, E.L.O., Bad Company, Pink Floyd, Fleetwood Mac, Journey, The Who, The Rolling Stones, Steve Miller Band, Boston, Supertramp... an on and on. I think it was the last decade of really amazing musicians.  I mean, if you wanted it to sound perfect, you had to play or sing it perfect. None of this slick editing and fixing that is done to death now.  And the records had DYNAMICS! Now it's just mastered right out of it. <sigh>

 

New music on the way

I have been having a bunch of issues lately. Time, equipment, inspiration. In the next couple of weeks, expect a few songs to be remixed, and maybe a new one or too.

I will post them online soon. And maybe to iTunes also.
