all-time record – day ten

22 May

The final one…

last saturday, blah blah

Day X of 10 of my all-time favorite albums. 10 days. What really made an impact and is still on your rotation list, even if only now and then. Post the cover, no need to explain, and nominate a person each day to do the same. Nominated by XXXXXX, I now nominate XXXXXXX

feeling the need to explain

Day ten – Indigo Girls – 1200 Curfews (1995)

I joke that the Indigo Girls are the soundtrack to my marriage. One of our first “dates” was catching the ‘Girls show at Franklin and Marshall College on the “Rites of Passage” tour. We caught them at Lilith Faire on our Honeymoon (yes, we went to Lilith Faire on our honeymoon – how 90s is that?), we saw them a couple of years back in town right abouts on our 15th anniversary; there was another show in there somewhere too (but she took our eldest to that one because I had a conflict on the rescheduled date…), and we’ll probably see them again when the come to town.

Yeah, I’m a fan. Voices, acoustic guitars (although they’ve tended to amp up here and there, and when they do, they sound like The Replacements, which is awesome). It just works. The songwriting is uniformly great, and they do a whole lot to support good causes, and mentor and lift up aspiring talent. Simply good people, with great songs and stories to share. This live record, catching lots of stuff (but mostly from the 94-95 tour) captures the life sound pretty much perfectly.
