The music that made me #3

So there I was, pre-teen & all, enjoying sappy pop/rock love songs, when I joined a record club (now there’s something you don’t hear much about anymore!) and I had to pick out a certain number of records each month. And one month I thought, “I’d like to hear something different.” And on a whim, I chose Robert Johnson.  About whom I knew nothing.

Wow!


I love that so much, I created my own crazy piano arrangement of it. (On Drivin’! of course.) I love that so much, I’ve made up bunches of my own blues songs.

(I do have the complete recordings of Robert Johnson on CD. So this music actually fulfills the terms of the original challenge.)

Classical music is underrepresented so far in my list, isn’t it? Well, that will change pretty soon.
