In 1980 I somehow found myself wandering around Ingleston Market in Scotland. Having always been a big fan of all things Bill, I picked up a cassette of Modern Music. Got back to barracks and wacked it on the old Sanyo blaster. My overriding impression at the time was this was just about the best thing I had heard in a very long time. Poetic,majestic and about as well produced as my tiny mind could process.
Last week,some 40 years,massive learning curve and emotional shrapnel later the remastered version arrives. To say I am impressed is really an understatement. I am hearing stuff that was there 40 years ago that my [much younger] ears didn't even pick up.
Awesome and spellbinding comes close. I was grinning so much my earphones nearly came off.
Bill,you are one of the best songwriters and dream creators we have ever seen. I was actually 20 years old again for a short while.
God bless and a peaceful Christmas to you and yours.
