Too Much Music? Or (why I Was So Thin As A Kid!)Posted: March 22, 2011
In these days of instant legal and illegal downloads do you think you have access to too much music? As a kid growing up in the 70S records were things that you aspired to own and played to death once you had bought them! I remember saving up my school dinner money so I could buy records on a saturday!
This was one of my school dinner records!
Ah alice you were one of my first loves!
I love early rod Stewart but that’s for another blog!
These 2 albums have stayed with me for nearly 40 years and there are many others because i did not have much money so if I bought an album I had to play and listen to it irrespective weather i liked it or not, and eventually albums I would discard nowadays i got into and grew to love, that’s what is happening now we play something once it does not grab us and we move on to the next download!
I dont know what the answer is but a while ago i stopped using shuffle all the time and went back to listening to full albums, I try to swap old ones with new ones and I still have days just listening to favourite stuff or stuff people remind me about (mezzanine by massive attack at the moment because http://antstothenational.wordpress.com blogged about it! thanks paul!)
Great music needs to grow with us it’s not just a disposable commodity,give those new albums a few plays and a fair chance you might find some classics amongst them!
I would be interested in peoples thoughts about this.
