ABOUT

Although discovering records and popular music rather later than many, the last several decades have been spent trying to catch up. This has resulted in a substantial collection of music in various formats. Yet vinyl LPs remain the music source closest to this 33 rpm heart.

Over the years I have been all of the things below for durations varying from the mercifully temporary to great big chunks. Some brought great satisfaction and modest success, others neither. Fortunately, those that are on-going have proven nourishing and sustaining.

  1. This is a very nice about page. I couldn’t tell if you were being funny or serious about the #FF tag. It’s #FollowFriday. You recommend a few people you follow and interact with, then retweet your friends’ recommendations. It’s an event to help everyone build their networks and play games at the same time.

    I blog music videos occasionally, and I would like to have more extensive music blogging on my site eventually, but I just haven’t found the right contributor yet.

    Cheers!

    Just discovered your blog and it looks good. I have just returned to vinyl with delight and enthusiasm
    Also to film cameras!I embraced the digital format and realised that’s it’s is not as good as claimed by
    Would anyone claim that digital radio sounds as foods as cm? Although I do like radio6.

    Hi Bruce. I’m Christopher, I commented on your post in the FB Progressive Rock Group — I just added your site to the links in my three music blogs. You have a great page. “Listening to Jimmy Smith = Coffee.” Nothing could be closer to the truth. Love it. Chris

    Bruce, I was interested in the Adelphi mentions and we are still going after 53 years !
    It was great to hear about the time you were with us.

    1. Wonderful to hear from you Michael. And most impressed to hear that Adelphi is still burning up the boards! Wishing you many thunderous curtain calls to come.

  13. Hey Bruce , thanks for the comment on ‘Clockwork’. Somehow it disappeared into the ozone after I looked at it. (Hit wrong key, sausage fingers) Anyways don’t think I can meet your deadline but I will look forward to what you’re putting together. Sounds very cool. Yeah at the time i went out and bought the Soundtrack for ‘CO’. Love it. (In CB’s half assed chronological musical trip I think the first soundtrack will be ‘Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid’)

  15. Hey Bruce

    Matt here. We became reacquainted in JB recently – of course, had be to in the vinyl records section! Round & Round Records, Sydney Rd would have been cooler, though : ) Just wanted to send praise for your blog.Yep – its officially amazing. I see SO many shared tributaries feeding the stream of musical discovery… Prog, of course, but so much more. So I’ve saved you as a tab on my Macbook and I’ll endeavour to read as many posts as I can find time for. Just bought my first (albeit reconditioned) amp and speakers and getting back into vinyl again after decades away. Anyway, more importantly, the ‘Categories’ are great – can’t wait to dive in!…
    Enough with the water analogies!…. Cheers.

  16. Bruce, seen your comment on ‘CB Takes a Cigar Break’. Then it promptly disappeared. You’re one of my faves on this blog thing. You spark so much good music, old, new and in between. Some of your film faves would be welcomed. Chuck is laying it down and I’m enjoying a very good cigar.
