Many of you haven't visited my home.
But if you did you would always find three things:
Candles burning everywhere, some chocolate covered treat, and my record player humming
Humming because it is always in between "letting the kids have their tv time" and
me having a moment of pure aural bliss.
Though I have a pretty vast collection Sam Cooke
never gets put back on the shelf.
If we had a sitcom, the theme music would be Cooke's.
But there has been a break in the air.
Enter crooner Leon Bridges.
I always listen to new music with my eyes
closed to let it really wash over me.
But I couldn't with him.
I was immediately jolted back to a different era.
I felt like I was doing myself a major disservice my
1. Being recently introduced and feeling a bit late to the party
but 2. listening to his music on my laptop. I definitely fall
into the purist basket and believe music before the 80s
(with the exception of Adele and Amy) ought to be played on vinyl only.
Please do yourself a bit of good and treat yourself to
an easy Saturday morning vibe during the week and listen to the album.
