Hey, I resemble that remark.........at least the obscure part......and that's only if you didn't listen to Krautrock.
Ah, yes, Led Zep 1. Bought the LP when it was released and burned through a few 8 tracks as well; bought another new LP when I started moving stuff to cassette (Nakamichi BX1 - couldn't afford the Dragon and never bought prerecorded), also own the CD and another via a box set. Point is I tire of "classic rock". I was on the forefront, soaking up every minute of Hendrix, Clapton, Beck, Page, the Beatles, Stones, Red Krayola and Strawberry Alarm Clock. Witnessed the birth of FM radio and picked up on PF when I bought Atom Heart Mother, listened to DSOTM in quad the first time I heard it and consider Division Bell a masterpiece. Even though I go back to the classics I want to be exposed to new stuff. Straight ahead jazz satisfied this lust for a while, then branched out sub genres (nu, neo, modal etc.) and fusion that has filled listening hours since the 70s. Cut my teeth on reggae (saw Marley back when) and spun a lot of grunge, prog, alternative and Heavy Metal. The 80s were virtually a black hole for music for me with a few novas here and there.
Fast forward in my diatribe to a few months ago when I met up with my Used CD Dude. UCDD had a coupla bags of Kraut and kosmische Musik discs that I couldn't afford or find in the 70s or couldn't justify buying at retail 10 or 15 years ago -> that's how I got here. Posting obscure (to the uninitiated) titles that I listened to that day would perhaps drive others to new experiences. I've had a few eargasms from the new (to me) stuff and listen in wonderment at the depths of electronica produced in primal studio conditions of 40 or so years ago.
When I move on to more mainstream (again) stuff you'll know it
Edit: Oh btw caught my previous post Elektriktus_Electronic Mind Waves on MOG, am-a-zing the amount of unexplored music available through various legal sources these days. It's truly a renaissance of tunes that's at our finger tips these days.
Happy listening.Edited by citizen arcane - 4/9/13 at 3:28pm
