Welcome to HUMP DAY in ODD. It’s actually HUMP DAY everywhere on Earth, but that’s just stating the obvious. It’s also Music Day today. Just a little stroll down memory lane in the music world. Those were the days of musicianship, poetic lyrics and raw performances. No lip synching or auto tuning of the voices back then. I doubt that Janis would make it today with the blandness that seems to pass as music. Remember when a group of your friends would gather at your stereo and listen to the latest record? That doesn’t happen anymore. Now it’s download to the phone, pop in the buds and live in your own world. No time for interaction. Enjoy a little post on music.
Remember doing this? Friends would drop by my place and listen to a new record/cassette/CD. The reason: Thorens turntable, harmman/kardon amp, B&W speakers, Denon cassette player and a Kenwood CD player. 300 watts per channel of crystal clear music. And maybe a beer or two to accompany the tunes. Wine was always available for the ladies. They were called listening parties.
