Astrud Gilberto

Why do people say they dig for records or they know music? The more you know, the more you realize you know nothing. How much music can one really have? How can you possibly enjoy a whole record when you have 2,000 songs on your hard drive? Remember when you had to listen to the whole album to get to the next side? Folks don't even have the wherewith all to memorize songs anymore. They just memorize artists to sound cultured around there friends. Where is the line drawn? Or let's just wait to someone dies to get up on there catalog and go to the monthly tribute shows. Explore and create your own lane. Be original. Right your own bible. Just listen and go. Enjoy where sounds take you...forward ever, backward never.
