In Times of Vinyl

by Regis Boff

“There was a time, child, when we bought vinyl albums expecting every song on them to be great.”

Radio could play songs longer than three minutes.

These collections were often written and performed by the same person.

I don’t exactly remember the first album of this kind I heard,

but I know my instant reaction was to do drugs, grow my hair long, and dress in outfits that resulted

in the grateful early onset of my parent’s Alzheimer’s.”
