Re: What are YOU listening to today?

Re: What are YOU listening to today?

When I first started listening to Munrow, his recordings would be appreciated for a long time, even after his death, as if his place in history was assured. Now I'm not so sure. Munrow was better live than on recordings (this is true of many other prominent musicians). In the early 1970es I attende...
