(Loving Paper – Dobby Dobson – Treasure Isle)
keeping a low one this week, (but not musically of course), only thrown the Gregory so far but as this is a musical diary heres another entry.
of interest, (to me at least), is the realisation that as one who, from a young age, was schooled in the ways of the catholic church, especially during secondary education, (11-16), themusicologist is the place I come to ‘confess’
strange thing confession .. and regular as clockwork through my school years, (at least once a week),
anyway back to themusicologist as the confessional box. I’m caught between music being the antagonist or the protagonist. of course there is the eternal balance and the can’t have one without the other and although I accept that in theory, for me, life is not theoretical or a game played in the mind. music is not theoretical it’s out there exposed to be acted on.
everytime I hear Curtis sing move on up, (musicology#30), it moves me, calls me to arms and shows me the way
“so move on up and keep on wishing .. remember your dream is your only scheme, so keep on pushing”
I first heard this at the tender and impressionable age of two where it stuck like glue and opened my heart and mind to the power of music to communicate a message. ever since then the thirst for music has been unquenchable, over time becoming the only constant companion as well as the voice that is always heard. I mention all this because right now I find myself standing at the crossroads and wondering where music will lead me. this piece of Trojan produced RockSteady on the Treasure Isle Label has also been a constant source of inspiration since first feeling it back in the 80’s
come in dobby dobson and help shine the light.
