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.

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.

    Great memories. I still have that Sanyo M9990 and it still eats tapes.

    Listening parties. I wish I had the bucks for that nice equipment back then but still my system was good and loud, and the music was insane. It was new music of the times too. Led Zep 1-4, Rush 2112, Boston, Eagles, Hendrix, Jethru Tull, Tubular bells, and more. We were mostly high 16 y-olds, downstairs at home. Life was great… and we just wanted to grow up fast. FOOLS!
