Wow - Where to begin? For music in any form has been such a large part of my life and defines certain periods and moments in time. Music for me is like the sense of smell that opens up a carcophony of memories...

I'm part of the so called "Baby Boomer Generation" - and yes, we're of that age now (you know, the older ones who seemed oh so out of touch and strange). I feel blessed to have grown up in at a point in time where both technology and music evolved dramatically. I'm 58 years old and have been retired for two years, which gives me plenty of time to devote to my passion of music! 

My earlies recollection's are of listening and ENJOYING the music of the Beatles, specifically Sgt. Peppers. LA Woman by the Doors brings back memories from 1971 while living in Palo Alto. Elton Johns Yellow Brick Road. From Classical to Jazz, 80's New Wave, Adult Alt, Classic Rock...You could say that I have a wide spectrum of musical tastes.

 

So here's a short list, followed by what I'm listening to today on my Itunes Playlist - 6 Second Love by Whitney Woerz - my latest. 

 

Beautiful Friction - The Fixx

Los Angeles - Sugarcult

All Over The World - ELO

Kiss And Tell - Brian Ferry

Rain In The Sumertime -The Alarm

Spooky - ARS

Getting Away With It - Electronic

Let's Dance - David Bowie

If I Could - Seal

Soul Cages - Sting

Joshua Tree - U2

Walk On The Ocean - Toad The Wet Sprocket

Midnight City - M83

The Hurting - Tears For Fears

Crash Test Dummies

Fastball

Michael Franti

Taylor Swift

Stevie Ray Vaugn

Whitney Woerz

95% classical, 5% folk.  I inherited a vast collection of over 5000 LPs from someone who was an extreme musicologist.  (He wrote the program notes for many symphony orchestras for extra income.)  Nearly 500 of the records had never been played.  In fact, they are still sealed in the original cellophane sleeves.  The rest are in pristine condition having been played only once.  I'm gradually working my way through the whole collection, but it will be impossible for me to live long enough to ever listen to all of them.  I have no particular favorite; it would be like choosing a favorite child.  Many of the better known classics are duplicates.  For example, there are at least 14 different interpretations of Beethoven's Fifth Symphony by different conductors and orchestras.  I once spent a whole day trying to decide which one I liked best, and it's amazing how different they are from each other.

Though I don't usually listen to much country music, I recently rediscovered Gary Morris and his hit albums from the 80's: Why Lady Why, Greatest Hits Vol. 2, and Plain Brown Wrapper. These were all ones I had on cassette tapes, so updated to the digital versions and listening to them all again.

Ray Obiedo - Sticks and Stones (1993) Not only good music, but also a very well recorded disc.
