Yep, you've pegged my age pretty well. I grew up at a rural boarding school in the 1970's and the music of your young adulthood was what I heard coming from dorm room speakers when I was in grade school and Jr. High. I think the "breakup albums" stay with us longer than other popular music. "Blood on the Tracks" is a top-shelf example, as is Richard and Linda Thompson's "Shoot Out The Lights." And Billy Bragg, when not waving the workers' banner, consistantly nails the aftermath of lost love.

A very nice essay on musical nostalgia! I'm guessing that you are about ten years younger than I (I'm 52) but there are several intersections. I was a Grateful Dead fan and heard them live during the 1970's, and Blood On The Tracks was an influential Dylan recording early on in a marriage which has now dissolved.

It was the A-side of "Life's a Riot", starting with The Milkman of Human Kindness. Raw, full throated Cocknny, unadorned guitar. "I don't want to change the world / I'm not looking for a new England / I'm just looking for another girl."

Think I'll spin "Love Gets Dangerous" today.

Awesome. It sounds like our musical tastes are compatible. What did you play by Bragg? My favorite is Talking with the Taxman About Poetry.

GreenmanTim

It could just as easily been Neil Young. Comes a Time, I reckon. "This ol' world keeps spinnin' round / It's a wonder tall trees ain't layin' down" Really good to know you again, too.
