Re: Music for life ???
My thought is that we only know what we know....er, what has been set forth for us through the channels, so to speak. I do have a desert island set of recordings, but I asked the question, "what if I was able to expose more of that kind of music that was not rammed down my throat through radio...before the mtv".... Because if the bands I was exposed to were good, surely there were others...
I came up with a lot of stuff....stuff I never heard of but of a parallel style to what would be on my desert island list
Hammers Of Misfortune
Artful Dodger ( not the eclectic UK offering)
Love Affair (later changed to L.A.)
Crack The Sky
So I have dismissed the idea that it is a specific band(s), but more that it is a level of technology, sound and style that grabs ahold and settles in....cause there are other bands doing similar stuff....with a few notable exceptions of course
