During our years of youth, we listened to plenty of music. But in an era where you had to have money to invest in your favorites, you were curtailed in experimenting. There was no internet to provide a sampling of any band you were even remotely interested in. you either had to be lucky to hear a full play via FM Radio, or to have a friend brave enough to spend the cash. I know, I had to leave many bands behind as a result. I heard a track somewhere (most likely radio, or an in-store play), and that piqued my interest. But, do I get the new Foghat? Or gamble on this unknown album? Fortunately for me, I was a wild gambler. But I couldn’t buy everything.
This brings me to this poll question: Are there any bands from the past that you had a small interest in, yet were unable to spend the cash to investigate a whole album? If so (and I’m sure there were), have you revisited them in the here and now?
But let’s ask the question like this:
What band or list of bands should you revisit from your past having been unable to fully investigate then?
I look forward to your answers as you may provide one I should investigate.
