MixTape!

With both of us working from home I moved my desk out to the dinning room table. Being in the main part of the house during work hours is distracting, but not with out it’s rewards. Like my record collection!

Here is what I’ve been listening to lately.

2001 A Space Odyssey soundtrack; I know that’s an odd choice but with it’s eerie haunting sounds it can be big pre-coffee mood.

In keeping with soundtracks, currently spinning is James Bond Greatest Hits, circa 1982.  That’s right Goldfingaaaahhhhh at max volume with accompaniment by yours truly.

I have quite a bit of my parents collection and they were hippies, with a capital long hair and patchouli.  Into the fold that brings the Beatles, Simon and Garfunkel, Crosby Stills and Nash, and who doesn’t love some Elton and his yellow brick road.

I started my jazz/blues collection by buying a lot off ebay, 30 records for $30 and free shipping.  Some artists I knew some I came to really enjoy.  Recently on the table Artie Shaw and Benny Goodman.  I have so many of their records and honestly love each of them.

Occasionally I do pick up newer artists that have started to reembrace the vinyl age.  I’m obsessed with Honey, Honey’s sound.  I have “3” on vinyl and listen to it often.

So that’s what I have been listening to in the last week or so.  I’ve also slowly started adding my collection to DiscoG so you can find me there, username ElizaN,  if you want to see more.  Happy Listening.
