Listening

My dad and I used to sit for hours listening to music when I was growing up. We'd put on a record from his wall of vinyls and listen through the whole thing while he'd tell stories of that particular recording or band. He's the one that taught me that listening to an album is an active experience.

This list is public so that y'all can recommend new ones to me. I've also definitely forgotten that I own an album and then bought duplicates. So, you know, this helps me avoid that again.

Always have a record playing in the shop.
