Did you not have access to music for a period of time?

You'll need to go about this in a reasoned manner to optimize your potential enjoyment.

I know I have spun lot's and lot's and lot's of music in my life but still find great stuff that is new to me.

Leave some info and instead of hit and miss I am sure the posters here can slowly offer you the best in what you may have missed.

Those mentioned are some valuable resources; this list provides some unexpected gems as well.

Good luck in your musical journey.

Goodness, I never expected a slightly tongue-in-cheek post meant to celebrate the diversity of artists and genres would evoke such concerns for my musical education!

eljr, I did in fact go some years without exposure to music variety: lived for 13 yrs in PNG late 60's early 70's, and the only radio station was devoted almost entirely to Country and Island music! (not that I don't mind either, when leavened with other choices!) Also in early 1980's my Akai reel to reel and amplifier kicked the bucket, and I did not bother replacing either until some 4-5 yrs later. So I missed hearing a lot of contemporary musical experimentation for quite a number of yrs.

What kind of music do I like? Almost any kind!! Probably 75% classical (all the usual suspects, but not opera so much), some jazz and blues; some mild "pschedelic" (Donovan's Season of the Witch, Mellow Yellow, Sunshine Superman etc etc etc, Incredible String Band, Beatles' Seargent Pepper etc); Eagles, Smokie, Bread; Celtic and Irish (Loreena McKennit, Furies, Clannad); some "world" music - Ravi Shankar and Anoushkar Shankar, the Radio Tarifa Rumba Argelina album, the Sera una noche's La Segunda, Riley Lee and his shakuhachi; some 60's folk (Baez, Dylan, Marianne Faithfull, Simon and Garfunkel); Belafonte, Neil Diamond, Norah Jones, Leonard Cohen
, some country compilation albums,......

Yes, I am a little(!!) stuck in the past - it does show, doesn't it?

But I am trying: a little Pandora through my Oppo (analogue out to a NAD T775 HD avr), some track sampling on Amazon (computer is permanently plugged into the NAD). I do not miss vinyl (sorry) but I do miss the album art covers (what a mine of material for wall-papering a bedroom or home theatre room! and this thread has some great reminders of beautiful cover artwork).

Yes, music should be a journey of continual discovery, with a dipping back into old favourites now and then to re-assure us that they still have their magic. So some more exploration on Pandora, with the posts in this thread providing some jumping off points...and may the band keep playing on!
