What I did today was listen to Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier. Lord, that is long! I think I will never again listen to both books all the way through in a single day. Music shouldn't be that much work.
And so with relief I turned to my first Sigur Ros album, Agaetis Byrjun. There are some diguts and smigguls in there, but that's about right.
I didn't have time to post last night, so I'll catch up a bit.
I continued my self-education in classic rock with the Rolling Stones, Let it Bleed.
I knew "You Can't Always Get What You Want" from the radio, but I think the rest of the songs were new to me.
I admit my prejudices: I did not expect this album to be so good. What impressed me the most
As a mere "advanced beginner" in the world of classical music, I won't pretend to give any lectures here. No map, just a record of my stumbles through the vast uncharted territories of human culture.
Too much ado already.
And anyway, today was a pop day.
For the first time, I listened to If You Can Believe Your Eyes and Ears, an album bt The Mamas & the Papas. The experts tell us it's a classic.
