Why don’t we ever just listen to records?

Posted on April 29th, 2012 by tonieee


Ralph is away camping so I’ve been taking advantage of the opportunity to just sit and listen records which is such a rare treat. These days I normally only listen to music while performing some other tasks.

So far I’ve listened to:

    • Shreds and Patches by John Kirkpatrick and Sue Harris
    • Buckfast Bottles in the Rain by The Just Joans
    • Deliverance by A Hawk and A Hacksaw
    • Out of Sight, Out of Town by Standard Fare
    • Below the Salt by Steeleye Span
    • Holst’s The Planets performed by the BBC Symphony Orchestra

    My favourite thing in the world used to be to just sit down in a nice chair, put the needle on and listen. That hardly happens anymore, indeed! It’s a shame. Good music really deserves our full attention.

    I totally agree. For the last few weeks I’ve been taking the opportunity whenever Ralph is not around or is in bed to listen to music properly and it’s been very enjoyable. I’m also cutting down on having music as background and listening on headphones when walking/busing/traming somewhere and trying to reserve it for when I can give it my full attention.
