Well, Well.

It has often been said that the music we listen to in our high school-college years becomes the music we listen to for the rest of our lives.  You will not hear me dissenting on that theory.

One of the fringe (or maybe not so fringe) benefits of my four years at college was being introduced to musicians I had never heard before. Some of that music is still on my regular playlists, even forty years or so later.

2P 4pg insertOne such singer/songwriter is Dean Friedman, who happens to be celebrating the 40th anniversary of his “Well ,Well” Said The Rocking Chair album.

I remember when Jack Sonntag,  DJ at WMTB and one of my music mentors, played this record for me.  I was hooked.  The album is an eclectic mix of styles and includes the hit, Lucky Stars.

Lucky stars is a tender, love song. Another love song from the record is not so tender, unless you are referring to how you feel the morning after.

    I think you’re right as I find myself drawn to the music I listened to in high school/college. It brings me back to happy youthful exuberance!
