It was time for a record reset.
I have been listening to a mixture of music from plastic spanning several decades during the last few weeks. Records featuring gospel, country and R&B have been under the needle.
It was time to cleanse the plastic palate, as it were.
I pulled my album of greatest hits by The Doors. I have documented the record before in past reviews. But it’s been a while.
Nothing cuts through the silence of a cold morning like the opening guitar riff of “Break on Through.” I tested the speakers attached to my record player more greatly than any other time in recent memory.
There’s nothing wrong with Willie, Waylan and the boys.
It was simply time to get back to vinyl rock basics.
(Other ballyhooed resets: Russian, television, the dinner table.)
