My Musical Evolution – Part 306 Roach Days Revisited The Romance Glacier & The Road To No Where

The summer of 1987 was all about little changes. I had sold my gigantic Ford Galaxie 500 and gotten into a sporty little Comet. I had my Easter Epiphany and had scaled back on my vices. I wanted to return to a slower, simpler existence.  Which is probably why I began to hang out with […]

My Musical Evolution – Part 285 Roach Days Revisited More Over The Airwaves

Even with my voluminous collection of music, there are still thousands of songs that passed through My Musical Evolution that never made it to The Eclectic collection. You can buy everything.

Looking at these old videos and other 80’s related stuff, I’m reminded just how colorful the middle of the 80’s were. Maybe it was just the change of moving back to the city but it seemed like it happened very fast. It seemed to start in the fall of 1983 and last until some time […]

My Musical Evolution – Part 168 College Intermission Music Journal

Have I suggested that you keep a Music Journal?  I’ve been tracing My Musical Evolution for 7 full months now. It has been more fun than it probably sounds.  This isn’t the first time that I wished for documentation. I really wish that when I was just beginning to get into music that I would […]
