Status Quo – Historia de la Musica Rock (52)

Status Quo – In the Army Now

Status Quo – Never Too Late

David Bowie – Blackstar

Jackie Venson – Vintage Machine

Charles Mingus – Mingus Mingus Mingus Mingus Mingus

This is my record; just took it out of the shrink wrap today. It’s been waiting patiently. Oh, so patiently. I don’t know why I came so late to Mingus. The man’s a genius. Love this recording.

Henry Mancini – Breakfast at Tiffany’s

Another of my folks’ records. It saw a lot of play as well. I heard this was one of Dad’s favorite movies.

Joe Henderson – You’d Be So Nice to Come Home To

One of Mom’s records; apparently a Christmas gift to herself, December 17th, 1962. It’s seem substantially more play than the three records previous records of my dad’s.

Beach Boys – Surfin’ USA

My mom purchased this for my dad for his birthday, January 11th, 1964. I’m playing it, 56 years later.

The Ventures – Walk Don’t Run

Another one that I reckon was dad’s. Like “Whipped Cream,” I doubt this one’s seen a turntable since last millenium.
