I’m calling this selection of tunes ‘The Lifeline’.
It is gonna be the first in a series that loosely traces a brief timeline from when I first became aware of popular music to the present day. It won’t be by any means comprehensive, but it will give an idea of my influences and how they have become so eclectic.
I will include my guilty pleasures, warts and all.
Buckle up, hold tight and let the good time roll.
60’s to early 70’s. Musical awakenings……..
