I am going to now try to re-activate my almost daily music writing blog. I'm going to do it here, and make "Music Life" take the place of "The Ron Kane Files" (and the "20th Century Music" blog before it). I may re-format the page, to see if I can get more entries to appear - not sure yet.
I may post a Playlist or "Yard List" every now and again - as those two things sometimes very accurately describe my own "Music Life". Also, I will try to not write everything so far in advance that I lose interest in it before I post it.
It was a crazy weekend - I went to the Buena Park (record collector) swap meet last Sunday (i.e. yesterday). I bought a bunch of $2-$4 LP's, and a bunch of bags / boxes from Far West Record Supply. Heaven!
Swap meet list:
CROCKER, BARRY – SOUND OF MUSIC, SPIN AUS LP the guy who plays Barry McKenzie in the Barry Humphries movies
DEE, KIKI – LOVING & FREE, ROCKET
LOCKWOOD, DIDIER – SURYA, INNER CITY US LP jazz violinist
NEUTRONS – BLACK HOLE STAR, U.A.
NEW SEEKERS – WE'D LIKE TO TEACH THE WORLD TO SING, POLYDOR
PAPAS, IRENE – SONGS OF THEODORAKIS, RCA INT'L
SAD CAFÉ – FANX TA'RA, RCA
SHAW, SANDIE – s/t, PYE NL LP collection, Dutch orig 60's LP "Boek + Plat" (i.e. record club issue)
TATTERSALL, RICHIE – SONGS OF, U.A.
THEODORAKIS, MIKIS – CONCERT 4, EMI PATHE FR LP 60's recordings by the influential Greek composer
THEODORAKIS, MIKIS – No. 4, OLYMPIC GR LP an original Greek pressing of his (over-all) 4th album - but I can't date it accurately
So, for today, that's what's going on in my "Music Life" - I re-launch my blog, and tell you when I got last weekend.
Please always feel free to comment, or leave 'requests' in the "Comments" section. I read 'em all.
