Magical sounds from my adolescence. I only wish I could have been hearing them closer to the source, not in a dinky nowhere town where such records were only to be found at a divy one-room record store and where the music was only played on the one college radio station. It was music that got me thinking that there must be more interesting places to be, places where exciting music like that came naturally to someone. Not Walla Walla, that’s for sure.
