If someone looked through you music (records, CDs, etc.) what would surprise them?
This actually was a bit of a happening with a friend. In looking though my...special pressings, gold Cds, SACDs, and other esoteric "software sources" he was surprised at the Rosie Clooney ones. In her later life she did some CDs of "standards" and she nailed 'em.
Just the fact that I have so much of it would probably be the first and biggest surprise. I don't wear headphones around all the time (or any of the time), and I rarely talk about music at all. I think it would come as a surprise to just about everybody that I listen to music as much as I do.
Lots of NWOBHM 7”’s 12”’s, LP’s did a lot of trading in the early 80’s. had several trade buddies in Europe, ide send some cassettes, records, etc, in return I would get a lot of rare British rock/pre-metal stuff.
Still have most,still in touch with my friends across the pond.
For me my musical taste goes everywhere with the majority of my collection centered around R&B, Rock and country but the lack of not one offering from Frank Sinatra surprised even myself and I need to rectify that. Enjoy the music
Wait, I thought cat hair on a special pressing LPs just gave them more.....ah, you know, texture? The last cat I had would sit for very long periods of time trying to "catch" the cursor on my computer monitor...sometimes on the front of the screen and sometimes on the back... more than once I lost a mouthful of coffee onto the screen from laughing.
@dayglow no Bowie? Blasphemy! Haha! Yeah, being a drummer, most of my music leans on the rhythm side with some great musicians and particularly drummers. But, they would be surprised by the wild variety of different styles.
Probably the odd mix of music, CCR, Death SS, Kreator, Celtic frost, Pat travers, mr. Big, Yakuza, trust, forbidden, Clarence brown, Johnny winter, b b king, humble pie, venom, Jenny Darren, Melanie, bathory, the accused, the Beatles, frank marino, the temptations, wishbone ash, napalm death, riot, John Denver, Rob dylan, exciter, dead horse, queensryche, status quo, Elvis, beach boys, grand funk railroad, Samson, American dog, and 400 more bands. I love a good variety of tunes, during different times of the day, or my mood , also, we entertain family on weekends many times, so we play the:doors, Rob seger, the stones, killing joke, all kinds of stuff, and once in a while I’ll put on a song by zoetrope, or hear, just to mix it up a bit. We have a large variety of music, and try to get to listen to a lot every month, when we have downtime, but there’s always something to do.cut grass, trim shrubs, change oil on lawnmower, cars n truck, so when I hit the couch, I like my system nice and toasty when I sit with a dram or a frothy hefe-Weiss.
Surprised by the breadth and depth of blues and jazz owned by a white kid from “Mud Spot”, Wyoming. My jazz director was from Vegas and played the big hotel casinos when that was the thing. What a blessing.
