I remember when I was very young I used to listen to classical music a lot and I hated pop music that the commercial stations offered. I found refuge in a non-profit radio station that played jazz and classical music. When I was very young, I don't remember how old but I could have been maybe 6 or 7. I asked my mom to buy me two cassettes of classical music. I don't have them now but I remember one was based off of Romeo and Juliet and that was the one I didn't like. The other one that I did like had piece by Maurice Ravel, called Bolero(French for marching tune). Ok, I found it on youtube and am listening to it now. That may have been my favorite piece on the album. Now that I am older and I have listened to a lot more music it doesn't sound so great or maybe I am just getting older and that's why, but it's still good. Perhaps I could make this the soundtrack to my life. Never become stagnated and go out with a bang. The melody seems to have very structured, repetitive but different variations each one different from the last, louder and more intense. Listening to it has a youngster gave me a sense of determination. Each time you get knocked down in life you rise up again slightly stronger because you learned of one new way of how not to get knocked down or at least you know what it is going to feel like and no need to cry over the same thing twice, just keep on keeping on. Somehow music seems to mimic life and that is what makes it so enjoyable. Anyway, I read somewhere(maybe Wikipedia) I think that Roy Harper Liked Jean Sibelius so I think I will give Jean Sibelius a listen. I choose “The Oceanides” I never heard it but the titled and content of the piece sounded interesting followed by some violin concertos in D minor. and I must say I must not be in the mood for it. Anyway back to my old ways I arranged a set of Roy Harper's “Heaven is Here”, “January Man” followed by Walter Giseseking playing the works of Debussy(Preludes) and a fresh cup of coffee. God I love these leisure afternoons. Back to the first album I bought, lets fast forward to my teenage years. I first became really interested in music when I started listening to a radio program called different roads and celtic connections. One night I heard Dougie Maclean's “Ready for the Storm” I also liked Dick Gaughan's son “Sail On”. So The very first albums I remember buying as a teenager were a Collection of Dougie Maclean songs, Capercaillies “Secret People” Kips Bay “Into the Light” I would say my taste in music has expanded over the years from the very early on I was only interested in instrumental. Later on I went through a phase of playing progressive rock music really really loud. I also thought I would never enjoy rap until I heard Beck Hansen. Some music I feel I was just born and programed to love it, because it is in my nature. While other music that I listened to seemed to be brought on by situational circumstances causing anger and fear, a dark place that I hope I won't go back to. So what was your musical journey like and how did you discover Roy Harper? What was the first album that you bought? And how has your taste in music changed?
