I love to pick up a mint or sealed copy of something I loved in my youth. Just brings me back to good times. Some of them include "Feel the Need" (Detroit Emeralds), "JT" (James Taylor)and "Funky Broadway" (Dyke and the Blazers). I just picked up a copy of "Forget Me Nots" by Patrice Rushin. One of the best bass lines ever played, courtesy of Freddy Washington. I'm smiling just writing about it.
Yeah, this is not a music critic thread; glad to see you guys worked it out. :)
John, I still have cassettes in the garage with some good stuff on them. I have a deck out there and sometimes when I work at the bench or play basketball with the boys I put on a tape. I think I'll glance at the titles and glean another name or two...
Tpreaves, yeah, I just a week ago picked up Beck's "Guitar Shop," which I used to play alot. Nice trip down memory lane. These old favorites sound incredible on a good rig. We had no clue how good this music was back when we first heard it, unless seeing the artist live. :)
Another name comes back to me in the synthestized genre; Isao Tomita's "Snowflakes Are Dancing," which was more like watercolor pictures for the ear, I suppose.
I go back and listen now to synthesized stuff from ELP, Steve Miller Band, Edgar Winter's "Frankenstein," etc. and with a far better rig than when I first enjoyed them my appreciation of the musicianship soars. These peices were not just novelties, but really good musicianship. They sound far better now than they did back then. :)
No reason not to love synthesized music as an audiophile. :)
