|My winter walks provide plenty of time for music listening...|
|Find it. Listen to it.|
Anwyn isn't listening through the entire list, but has really indulged in the list of personal favourites that I have been generating as I go through the book. We really share a love of killer guitar solos and hard rock lyrics. I think we both had trouble comprehending how Machine Head by
Deep Purple possibly contains the entirety of every great guitar riff... EVER ;) In addition, I don't think there is anything finer than screaming with Bowie, "F-I-I-I-I-VE YEARS..." or, trying to sing along with Plant as he screeches out the line from Black Dog, "move me like your doin' now." Sixteen... seventeen... eighteen... these were years I expected to struggle to connect to my kids. This project has helped to keep our awesome communication going and then some.
I have been working on a personal Reconciliation project (via edX) for the last 7 weeks. It wraps up on Tuesday and I hope to get back into this project at that time. Feel free to share your favourite albums of all time in the comments (as many as you care to input). I would love to give them a listen in between my other albums. Djaii has been throwing out some real gems on Facebook, from time to time.
If you have no interest in my process or joining in, you should stop HERE!

Notes on The Playlists...
- Discogs has several variations of the list. It was a very useful site for helping me hunt down tracks when the original album was not available, but some of the material could be found on collections.
- Since I have a family subscription to Apple Music, these are all Apple playlists. If you have Apple Music on your computer or phone, the links will open the playlist there. If not, bon chance.
- There are any number of things that are missing and/or inaccurate about my playlists. For instance, at the time I created the first half of my lists, Neil Young's music was not in Apple music--it is now, but I haven't updated the lists. If you want the full and unadulterated experience, you should definitely buy the book or check out a copy from the library.
