ALL OF MY PLAYLISTS ARE PUT TOGETHER EXCLUSIVELY FROM MY MUSICAL COLLECTION, IF ITS NOT IN MY ARCHIVE IT DOESN’T MAKE THE LIST. THIS CAME ABOUT BECAUSE OF SOMETHING MARIE SAID TO ME. SHE SAID THAT MY MUSICAL ARCHIVE WAS PROBABLY THE BEST PIECE OF ART I HAD CREATED. IT PROBABLY SAYS WHAT I AM ABOUT MORE SUCCINCTLY THAN ANY PAINTING, POEM OR STORY. IT’S ECLECTIC, QUIRKY, WEIRD, ANGRY, MELODIC, TRADITIONAL, AVANT-GARDE… IN ESSENCE, IT DESCRIBES MY SIXTY YEAR JOURNEY ACROSS THIS KNOWN WORLD.

WHEN WE GOT BACK TOGETHER AFTER A 33 YEAR HIATUS, I BEQUEATHED  THIS JOURNEY TO HER, AND GAVE HER BACK HER LOVE OF MUSIC AND THEN SHE SPENT THE NEXT EIGHT YEARS EXPANDING THE COLLECTION FOR ME. IT IS A MONUMENT TO OUR LOVE, AND ONLY NOW CAN I APPRECIATE THAT. FOR MOST OF THIS YEAR SINCE SHE’S BEEN GONE, I HAVEN’T BEEN ABLE TO LISTEN TO MUSIC WITHOUT CRYING. IT WAS AWFUL NOT BEING ABLE TO DELVE INTO MY MUSIC AS A RELEASE VALVE… THE VALVE WOULD JUST OPEN THE FLOODGATES, BUT NOW I CAN LET IT OPEN AND ITS ONLY A TRICKLE.

A TRUE BLESSING.

DALE ‘M’ CURATOR OF THE D/M MUSICAL ARCHIVE
