Introduction #Intro 

About 10 years ago, while visiting the Jersey shore, i came across a few boxes of records on the curbside. i didn't have a record player then, and they sat in storage for all this time. now i'm going through them to sort out the stuff that's too scratched or warped from the stuff i don't like, and finally find a few keepers

it's a collection of well over a hundred records that belonged to someone else, so it's way outside my musical tastes. i'm discovering a ton of music from the 60s that i wouldn't have ever listened to otherwise. some of it's really good. some of it is classic. a LOT of it is trash

My current header is a picture of Barbara Streisand; this is NOT because i like Babs. It's because whoever owned this collection before me seems to have really liked her. Personally, i feel she's like a middle school drama kid who was allowed to have a whole career

@Blakely i am now taking over this thread from this account; also, Phil Collins

@djsundog this Stan Getz, Bob Brookmeyer record is so good. thank you for these sunday vibes

cant hear the theme from "Love Story" by Henry Mancini wout being reminded of Immortal Tech's "Dance With The Devil" rap which is like 4Chan greentext levels of edgy

Listening to Chet Atkins' "For The Good Times And Other Country Moods" on which he plays "Death of Pagliacci"

"But Doctor, i AM Mr. Guitar"

Little Richard passed away today. Absolute giant of Rock n' Roll. As a teenager, his music, persona, and style brought me a lot of joy. He was a complex human being. A consummate performer with all the flamboyance and verve you could want

Elton John, but he's horny for stars: " *Do* let the sun go down on me"

phil collins made being a shabby british man into a sex symbol

6 months later and i'm still head over heels for Japanese Citypop

just a note: until i fix the rear camera of my cellphone (the parts are ordered), the albums will just be the titles and descriptions; i'll start upload actual photographs in the future, but for now i'll find album art online

i'd say i take a pretty lenient stance on "cultural appropriation" in music and other art, but come the fuck on
