Day 223 Take 2

David Gray- Foundling

Woo-hoo! All is right with the world!

I went down to Waterloo tonight and got a new pre-amp, hooked her up, and the turntable is as good as new. Whew!

Now I can not only start up this blog again, but also listen to the 13 Record Store Day releases I bought on Saturday. You have no idea how bummed I was that I couldn't listen to my records for the last 3 days.

I may get some ribbing from some of my friends who don't know I own this album, but I don't care. I'm a big fan of songwriters and David Gray is one of the best in my book.

I first got into David Gray with White Ladder, just like a lot of people did. His song "Babylon", is still one of my all time favorite songs and I'm sure it always will be. From there, I went out and got all of his earlier stuff and every thing he's released since. It's great that he's now releasing his albums on vinyl. I really hope White Ladder gets the re-release treatment.

I really like this album a lot. It's more stripped down and quiet, but still a very solid and strong 11 songs. If you like your music with a little heartbreak, go pick it up.

Good to be back!
