    Peaceful quiet as I putter with hand tools most of time. Occasional visitor offering suggestions.

    I usually listen to Pandora. I have very eclectic tastes in music, so I have a few dozen channels and playlists. Here is my thumbs up playlist if anybody wants to have a listen:. https://pandora.app.link/TVGZ3vQI5eb

    Rockabilly or country rock if I'm doing some steel fabrication. But when it gets late and I can't make noise anymore (want to keep the neighbours on my side), and turn to quieter jobs, a little Pink Floyd or ambient space music. But I have such a wide range of taste in music, I'll listen to pretty much anything.
     
  21. sounds of silence.....first time ive seen my lathe without rolling stock parked around it in a loooong time. first time i aint had to climb over piles of acumulated stuff for decades.

    Hello,

    In 1966, we took drive up the Big Sur Coast for a vacation. We had seen posters of an up and coming jazz festival in Monterey, CA. It was the 1966 Monterey Jazz Festival at the County Fairgrounds. We did not find out until later that the festival was going to happen just after we had scheduled a long road trip up to the SF Bay area for a nice holiday. It would have been hard for us to get back up there again in a month. We tried, but it was running into a lot of family stuff for us.

    So, we were happy to have purchased the LP album when it came out later in 1967. It fit right into the So Cal scene quite well. The “Summer Of Love” was going on, the vibe on the Westcoast was electric in just about anywhere you drove and visited, especially, in the LA and SF area places. This album was one of the best to depict that scene that started the good feeling from the 1966 Monterey Jazz Festival and continued until the hectic days of 1968 and the troubles all over the USA.

    For us, it was a peaceful way to absorb new ideas and have fun just living in So Cal.

    Along with the great Jazz music from these artists, they were woven into the playlist of a myriad of Rock and Roll Albums from our 60’s powerful amplifier. The sound came through large 15 inch bass speakers with steel horns. But, it was the time period.

    These days, it is a different powerful speaker system and a little digital Ipod Touch Player with the same sound of Charles Lloyd playing the clear music all over the garage. Good music never goes out of style.

    The funny thing is, this yellow cover album is still sitting in our cabinet as a display. When we gave our son all of our old 50s-80s LP collection for his full wall bookcase, we thought it was gone. But, the original, LP album and one other from the same time period were sitting propped up in the corner of our wooden cabinet.

    Like digital images, digital music preserves that great music for a lifetime. No more boombox or amplifier hooked up to a bunch of wires in the garage counter. It is a simple Bluetooth connected Ipod Touch digital music player through a pair of powerful speakers. A concert from the Monterey County Fairgrounds, with all of its hisses and pops, preserved in digital form.

    Charles Lloyd Monterey 1966


    (A 55 year memory sparked by the recent landslide/washout closure of Highway 1 that runs up the California coast. Then months later on last Friday, the recent reopening of the Highway 1 for all to travel from So Cal to Northern California for all activities as much as the pandemic will allow.)
