Thread Name: Rediscover Old Masters (eg, Cat Stevens)
Subject: RE: Rediscover Old Masters (eg, Cat Stevens)
Always had Heavy Horses in my car, but yeah, I need to revisit Songs from the Wood. I have a great memory of refusing to translate the lyrics of Thick as a Brick when my Hungarian was good!
I guess I'd like to distinguish great old music that we still love/love again from lyrics that are still true today, the way Le facteur isn't because snail mail isn't how long-distance lovers communicate any more.
Seals and Crofts? I still cry at The Boy Down The Road...
