I have recently re-discovered a few albums that my parents - or especially my mother - used to listen to and which still give me a warm fuzzy feeling.Nine Tonight
and Slow Turning
are two LPs that my Mom often used to crank up while vacuuming. We could always tell from a mile away when she had a cleaning day :)Love Over Gold
is one of my Mom's favourites and because of that another record that always gives me a familiar, cozy feeling.
Strangely enough, Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son
is also something that I tie very close memories of my family to. At the time of that album release my family was inbetween houses and we lived out of a trailer for half a year while travelling all over Switzerland and out to England where we stayed at the big Donington and Reading festivals and, among others, saw Iron Maiden live (that was the time when my 4-year old brother fell asleep on stage during their performance...)
That's it for now. I'll make sure to continue this as a loose series to remind myself of my musical heritage

with I'm Not There
finally coming to cinemas over here I got an interest in Bob Dylan which led me (among other great stuff) back to The The Travelling Wilburys
. I realised they were my first brush with Bob Dylan as I listened to their first album when it came out in the late 80's and used to set my clock radio to that CD for an energetic start into the day.
