    Totally, sheer genius. I was immediately hooked. Perfect segue for another random fact:

    The Blues Brothers
    did it to me, indirectly. Their Peter Gunn cover got me listening to the original series score, which in turn got my dad's attention. Little did I know he had a bunch of HM records, and he told me "if you like that, you'll probably love these". Nailed it. He turned me on to everything from Gilbert & Sullivan to Cole Porter to Billie Holiday. Even old Xavier Cugat recordings on 78. That sort of exposure really opened up my ears as a kid, and I'm grateful.

    Sergei second symphony is the bomb. His first is often misunderstood. Many a rock song came out of the second symphony.

    So funny that I read this just after I watched the I Miss You video for the first time it years. It's still as delightful and deranged as it was when I first saw it.

    Still stuck on CDs here...about 4K...alphabetized , with the British bands getting their own set of shelves...kinda ironic that I had tons of guitar mags (holding onto a few boxes of them) but can't wait to get home to this damned tablet.

    Random fact: I still have the 45 of Bob and Doug McKenzie's 12 Days of Christmas, with Geddy Lee singing Great White North on the B side. Closest thing to Rush in my collection.

    Excellent. I don’t think I ever even listened to the A side.

    I'm looking at my Beatles CD's from left to right, in order by date. I'm still stunned by the evolution of their music in such a short time. Five years from "Meet The Beatles" to "Abbey Road"? Jaw dropping.

    Down the shelf a bit is my John McLaughlin CD collection. Is there a guitarist who has played more diverse styles of music at such a high level? No.

    Every time my wife pulls out an old T shirt and says, "You never wear this old thing; I'm throwing it away," I always respond with, "That is not a T shirt. It is a good memory, and if you throw it away, that happy memory will be gone." Yes, she still thinks I'm a crazy hoarder, but I usually get to save my T shirt/memory.

    And this is the first 45rpm that I ever bought back in 1961 (I was nine, and some of the dirt in my yard today hadn't been created yet).



    And here is the 2nd one I bought the same year. And, I still have these 45s.



    Today is the first time I've listened to either of them in probably 30+ years.

    My taste in music has changed a bit over the years. LOL. Here is the last music I bought:
