About the blog

On February 24, 2013, my girls and I visited a charity Book Fair in Brooklyn, NY.  Amid the tens of thousands of books – a number of which we purchased – I noticed Tom Moon’s 1,000 Recordings To Hear Before You Die.

1,000 Recordings to Hear Before You Die

I was immediately struck by the scale of the thing, quickly followed by the recordings themselves – titles and artists I recognized and loved, a few I hated, many I have always wanted to hear, and even more I’d never heard of, spanning seemingly every genre.

For $2, that I would pick up the book was a given.  What was less obvious was how excited I was as we took the two-stop subway ride home.  I wanted to hear all 1,000 recordings.  I wanted to explore them and enjoy them and discuss them.  I wanted to blog about them.

Welcome to my blog.
