I had a cassette recorder, and taped songs from the radio. Often with talk over the beginning and end of the songs. It took a long calendar time to fill a 60 minute cassette.
Music in some of 'the few other' programs made me buy albums by "Chocolate Watch Band" and "Strawberry Alarm Clock" - kinds of music I still like to listen to.
There really were lots of great songs made during the years! Thanks for them!
"The Wild Angels" from 1966 - I liked that movie, with a fascinating beginning and many good biking shots. The story is rather tragic in a way, but I left the cinema with a good feeling.
That guitar music ...
Compared to the 'more structured British style guitar instrumental pop music', which I also liked pretty well, this felt so much fresher and freer and livelier. (Don't know the correct words to use ...)
"Blues Theme". "Cycle-Delic". And many more.
Oh yes, I really liked these too. The same basic feeling, but they had developed in a positive way. Harder, rougher, more playful, as I felt it.
"Metal Fatigue". "Corridor of Fear". And more.
That was the second time that Arrow music suddenly hit me with a joyful feeling.
Oh yes, I bought them! Later I also bought the two albums on CD.
Oh yes, I like the songs! For a long time I have increased the number of Christmas songs I have in pop and rock versions, to listen to during my rather long Christmas music period. These songs were a great addition! The same great guitar music feeling, in tougher versions of Christmas songs than most others I've heard.
That was the third time that Arrow music suddenly hit me with a joyful feeling.
You have made so many many hours of my life more pleasant. And so it will continue.
