turning on a new fan
Steve here in Canada - snowed last night.
So, I was in Vancouver this week on business. Checked out Virgin Records
(so over priced - can you think of Pink Floyd's 'Wish You Were Here' not
remixed, on sale for $25.99 CDN, I mean,come on, who is making all the $$ -
almost drive me to bootlegging, but not quite - although I didn't buy anything)
Point being...at the Who rack - a fair space taken up by their albums - a
young teen - say 14 or so, is browsing - already a collection of various
CD's in his mitts. He picks up a Who CD, turns it over and over, puts it
back. Does the same with another one (Sell Out, and My Generation). I
interrupt his process - I pick up a Live at Leeds 25th anniversary CD. Pass
it to him. Tell him that this is the best live album ever released. You
want a Who album, buy this. Turn it up loud. Listen.
He asked 'really?' I say I've been listening to it loud since about 72. He
says thanks, walks over to his mom with it, and they head to the cashier.
A good day.
