Sadly, in the rush to review stuff (deadline are deadlines) I only spend a few days at best with each piece of music. A CD gets listened to 2 or 3 times, the review gets written and the disc gets shelved away in my vast collection of 10 thousand plus CDs.
Yes, I'm bragging. Many never to be heard or seen again, until I do my yearly clean out/reduction of my collection and wonder "What the heck is this CD?" Writing about music in a way takes the fun out of listening to it. I don't appreciate the latest CDs Arcade Fir and Lorde discs as much I appreciated CDs I listened to decades ago when music was for pure pleasure. That is why I decided to start this new music blog. For pleasure.
Welcome to Keith Valcourt's Music Appreciation Society. Rather than review new Cds here, I will delve back into my archives of 10,000 CDs (Again--Bragging) and revisit bands and CDs that I truly appreciate. Maybe they are some of your favorites. Or maybe you've never heard of them. Maybe you will even discover some great music. I just hope you appreciate them as much as I do.
