Well, I've dug out some of my old CDs to play & I've been enjoying it mucho. Right now I am playing Cat stevens- Buddah & the Chocolate Box. It makes me smile. When I was 13, I played it constantly. IT WAS MY FIRST LP! I was so proud of it, I had a "real" rock album! I felt so connected to it (still do). Oh Very Young & King of Trees still have a deep cellular response in me.
"Oh very young, what will you leave us this time?
You're only dancing on this earth a short while..."
Does anyone else remember what a big deal LPs were? When you listened o the whole thing through until it became a cohesive piece of work & never sounded quite right piecemeal? Some music only sounds best to me on LPs and this is one of them. Though i have it on CD (because I cannot live without it), I also still have it & always will on LP. This is one of the treasures shining in my Delusions of Minimalism DragonPile of treasures. What's in your DragonHoard, that you will never give up?
CAT STEVENS-- wherever you are today-- I still love your music. Thank you for enriching my life & guiding me with your beautiful music at a formative time when I could have been led astray. I wish you all the blessings of the universe.
