SOME MUSIC JUST NEEDS SCRATCH SNAPS

…and, this is one example of this. I loved this LP when I was a kid! And, no, I didn’t get the double meaning at the time! Anyway, I recently found this LP in a dollar bin. There were two copies: One was almost pristine and the other was the one I purchased. It has a lot of surface scratches and noise pops as it plays. I think 70’s Heart sounds best this way too. I have a near mint copy of “Dreamboat Annie” but I think I’d rather have a surface noise copy. It seems to add something.

Questions I Made Up:

1. What toy do you most miss?
My Winnie The Pooh stuffed toy. It made me feel safe.

2. If you could bring back any dead person, who would it be?
My Grandmother. I’m always thinking of things I would like to tell or show her. And, I often wonder what she would think of me as I am now.

3. If you could have dinner with any historical figure, who would it be?
Forget Jesus or Ghandi, I’d like to have dinner with Amy Carter and gay porn legend Joey Stefano.
Maybe Patty Hearst could join us for dessert! You have to admit it would be interesting. …Or, maybe not. I don’t know. But, seriously, think of the stories each could share! Somehow, perhaps, John Waters could turn it all into a great musical!!!

4. Who was the hottest Brady Bunch member?
Peter! Peter! Peter! I (heart) Peter in his perm!!!

5. What, in your opinion, is the coolest LP cover of the 1990’s?
After much soul searching, I’d have to say it would be Hole’s “Live Through This” CD. One cringes just looking at it. Painfully real. …And, uniquely American somehow. I don’t know.

I’m not so sure I’m good at thinking of questions. I think I will so sit by the bay and watch the water. It is a beautiful and sunny day!
