Good morning friends,
does it happen to you as well that you find yourself adapting more and more certain habits of your parents, bearing in mind that for the last 30 years or so you so often swore to yourself that this shall never happen? Well, it happens to me occasionally, but, as we'll find out in due course, it's not a bad thing at all:
My mum would never throw anything anway, and I mean never! A manner I disliked intensenly when I was younger, but yesterday I found out again that I am not much better than her: it's all in the genes, you see!
Over at Jez' place the topic of the most wonderful Colorblind James Experience came up a few days ago and the tune Jez posted seem to have struck chord with a few people. Now, early stuff from The Colorblind James Experience is not terribly easy to get hold of these days, but luckily I remembered that somewhere I still have a cassette of their second album, 'Why Should I Stand Up?', released in 1989, two years after the great debut album. Quite why I bought it on cassette back then and not on vinyl, I simply can't remember. Old age, for sure ....
In a true "Give-'Em-Enough-Rope - style" (everybody will understand what that means, apart from George, so there you are, sorry George!) the album certainly isn't as good as the first one. But, being colorblind myself - so there still is a certain affection from my side - I ripped it for you, should anyone be interested and - so I should add - we are talking about an original Cooking Vinyl - cassette, not one of those cassettes copied in the 80's from a friend on a dodgy tape deck who had a friend with a dodgy tape deck who copied the album from a friend who had it on second hand vinyl, no Sir!
See, it's good not to throw too many things away too early (I still do miss this bunch of early Postcard singles I gave away for 20 Deutschmarks back in the early 90's, oh boy! *), anything might become useful again sooner or later. The same is true for my dodgy tape deck, apparently, as this post shows!
