More music, more music, more music

To quote one of the jingles from The Who’s “The Who Sell Out”, a record that rises ever more in stature as perhaps the single greatest pop/rock album of the 1960s, despite quirks, one or two less than inspired songs and a concept that largely peters out before the end of the record.

But that’s not really the point of this post which is simply to record that I have ordered a good chunk of the ‘Further Listening’ in Kingman’s “American Music: A Panorama” that fills some of the large holes in my knowledge of American music – be it folk, spiritual and secular popular or classical. Feeling very excited about this, because it is a dip into the unknown and unheard. What was it John Cage said? The most exciting music is the music he has yet to hear – something along those lines. I feel much the same way.
