I love song lyrics that reference a move on a chess board. "Your Move" by YES, is one of those great, now classic tunes that I never get tired of hearing. It has everything I love in a vinyl recording: instruments, clear sound without any technology, loaded lyrics that tell a story within the story and let's not forget the magnificent art work of an album cover, back in the day this was the access to art that my young
I would spend hours looking at some of them, laying on the floor, hands under my chin, seeing the little things without glasses... and then the song explodes into the rock and roll stratosphere, lifting you up and out of this world. That's the magic of a well made album.
Yes! to listening to the entire compilation of songs. This is the art of compostion in sounds. Listening to one song is like tearing a page from a book, it becomes isolated from the rest of the story. This is what is lost in today's digital discography of downloads. Besides, you cannot get your albums signed by recording Artists who wander into your studio before the show starts at the Narrows Center for the Arts to buy gifts for their wives...or themselves.
If you love board games and music as much as I do, then I invite you to "Game Unplugged with Music on a Monday Night" at Interwoven. Thanks to a grant from the New Bedford Cultural Council there is a budget for musicians, new and seasoned, who would like to jam out for a couple of hours while we play our games "unplugged."
