I just found this draft for a posting that I wrote four months ago. Let’s say goodbye to summer, and listen to some good oldies.
I’ve been digitizing vinyl this afternoon, and here’s a selection of the goods. It’s been a nice afternoon, in my sun-soaked apartment, drinking some leftover beers from a party and listening to some old favorites that used to make it on the mixtapes.
Possibly my favorite track is the Four Freshmen cut, live from Purdue University in 1959: My dreams are just like all my schemes, always ending in the sky.
And totally unrelated is the picture of the original Saltair, the Salt Lake amusement park which burned to the ground in 1925 an came back in different incarnations over the century. It was famously depicted in Carnival Of Souls, which I just recently watched and enjoyed.
