18 weeks of summer // 18 playlists // week 16: faded.

To me listening to an album from the 60s or 70s is like reading a history book.  I imagine everything being described to me like an old newspaper you find in your basement that has turned a faded yellow.

I recently stumbled upon a few old BBC session albums I had lying around from a few artists. It’s really interesting to compare the approach we hear everyday on the radio in MMXII to the approach used by the BBC in the 60s.  They have a touch that is unique to the times, which is dictated by the audience.

the music is fine, the music is faded.
