Recently I had a working tape deck and box full of all the music I listened to in the 90s. I am more than a little surprised by my taste. I was a lot more into tango music than I thought I was.
Looking back on it, I can really see why ska did not get big. I like my Moon Ska compilations though.
If there is one band I truly regret listening to, it is the Pet Shop Boys.
It’s weird how much stuff I have on tapes that the internet will never provide. I cannot find Marc Blitzstein’s version of the Threepenny Opera anywhere but on this cassette tape that I made of a CD that I checked out of the Teaneck NJ public library in 1995. It’s the best version of it I ever heard.
