music, another toy for my blog

Couldn't resist this............................

My main interest has always been music. Art I have to confess is a not inconsiderable second. When I saw this widget on a blog today, I had to have one (thanks Joey). I have found a couple of tracks (from the hundreds that they have done) by the Shadows and Hank Marvin rom the lists on the playlist.com site. I will hopefully be adding more.

Although I have many other likes in music, the Shadows have always stood out for me being a formative influence in my youth. Here I am in the company of many of the biggest rock guitarists of my generation. Hank has always been a musicians musician and the Shads were a stable background to conquer the world. (USA excepted unfortunately).

I hope you like the tracks, some of them are unfortunately a little dated but if you grew up in the early 60's they are so reminiscent of the era.

BY THE WAY: it should be obvious but it took me a little while to figure it. With many of these players when you navigate away from a page the music stops with this player it seems not to ----- you have to manually stop the player using the control button II. Sorry about that.
