I always wanted to be a treasure seeker

There is one thing about records and listening to these little pieces of art that always fascinated me.
Some impress you with the first note and you listen to them for a week, for a month maybe, but then you are done with them. At least for the moment or the next two years.
These kind of records hold some favourite tracks for a while, but not forever.
Maybe most records inhabits this effect.
And then there are some that you listen to and you feel uncertain whether you like them or not.
So you listen to them over and over again and you discover with every new play a new layer that you didn't notice before.
These kind of records surely become your favourites even if it takes a while.
There is a third kind left. Records you listen to and you like kind of. A sweet sound experience. Nothing more, nothing less.
A couple of weeks, month or years pass and you rediscover them, you start to listen to them again and you utterly fall in love with their sound.
You know and liked the songs already, but in some way your taste must have changed and now you adore them.
Recently happend with me and the Stone Roses. I always knew they were brilliant, but i never noticed in what amount exactly.

How many undiscovered treasures may be left in my recordcollection?

  1. Love the pictures. Really inspiring.

  2. I totally agree, I think that we all have 'relationships' with records, we fall in and out of love with them, remember them,miss them and change our minds about them.
    Maybe you could check out my blog, I think we have similar ideas and taste when it comes to music.
    Have a great week,
