Revisiting my extensive music collection, one artist at a time
It’s time for me to take a self-imposed break from blogging. I enjoy sharing my musical discoveries (& re-discoveries) and engaging in conversations with others who share the same passion, but with a busy few months ahead of me it seems like the perfect time to focus my energies elsewhere. This is only a temporary work stoppage and I look forward to revisiting many artists’ discographies in the not-too-distant future.
One of my favorite parts of this experience is all the friendships I’ve established with fellow bloggers, so I invite you to check some of them out by clicking the links below. Each writer has his/her own unique approach and I can’t recommend their work highly enough. I’ll continue reading them & chiming in during my hiatus. I also hope you’ll revisit my archives if there are posts you missed the first time, and please click the links for any other bloggers in the Comments sections (and feel free to add your own comments as well, of course).

If you’re looking forward to my future posts, you’ll have to “Wait Until The Summer’s Gone,” which segues into this song by one of my all-time favorite hard rock bands, Zebra, from their sophomore album No Tellin’ Lies.
If you would prefer something jazzy & mellow, here’s The Zombies’ version of the Gershwin classic, “Summertime,” from their debut album Begin Here.
HAVE A GREAT SUMMER AND, AS ALWAYS, THANKS FOR STOPPING BY.
