I spent this afternoon educating myself after nearly one month at my record store job with a still looming shame list of music.
I started at 5pm with my Moms record collection that I
stole borrowed. So far I have listened to:
- Adam and The Ants: Kings of the Wild Frontier
- David Bowie: The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust
- The Records: The Records
- Eric Clapton: Slowhand
I have also been reading the Wikipedia articles about each of these artists while listening so that I can start being one of those people who knows things like “oh, well that was when he was collaborating with so-and-so who went on to be the drummer for whats-their-name.”
It’s a remarkably rewarding experience. Up next is Tommy by The Who.
Side note: My mother has amazing taste in music and I understand now why she was upset when I made off with this loot.
