We’re having an ice storm in the Center of the Universe this morning. Good day to be old and vested although it’s not really the thrill you think it’s going to be. Especially the old part.
The last time Master Salvage and I took a meeting in the S21 Starbucks HQ the subject of guilty pleasures came up. You know what I mean, Steve and Eydie, Karen Carpenter, Alvin and the Chipmunks. But, applied to non-pop music. David confessed that there were parts of certain Michael Nyman pieces that sound pretty darn good. I owned up to an affection for Hovhaness. Now, it’s your turn. What’s your guilty pleasure.
I sure hope nobody says Philip Glass. I’m listening right now to a new recording of Music with Changing Parts (Orange Mountain) by the brilliant English group Icebreaker. No need to be embarassed about liking this one; it’s as good as it gets.
