plays pretty just for you
was made using only my dad
's records. every one of them an original pressing, stuff he bought when he was about as old as i am now--give or take a decade. my dad never played an instrument really, and my mom
always joked that he was actually tone-deaf. but man, what a taste in music--and in his own way, what an ear too. my dad could tell you who was playing drums and what year the record was made after hearing the first 2 bars of a song. maybe his mind never quite figured out how to communicate with his hands or his voice in a musical way--but he certainly had a mind for music.
some of these records were his favorites, some of them are my favorites, and some of them i listened to for the first time while i was putting this mix together--discovering new favorites.dad, this one's for you.
