… all girls need to hear … Joni!!! Her lyrics will sweep up a sensitive teen, the way they did me when I was 16.
My favorite Joni Mitchell album? BLUE. Which I bought in Worcester, at the old Strawberry’s records on Front Street, years and years ago. A great holiday gift for any girl!
That’s what our new downtown needs – a record store. A record store filled with sharp kids who know their music and can talk music with you and recommend lps, etc. A place where smart customers come in and also share their thoughts on artists. This is how it used to be in downtown Worcester. There are still record stores (filled with CDs, books and DVDs) in Amherst, Cambridge, Northampton, etc. Bring back the record store! A place (sanctuary?) where serendipity ruled and you left with a record you had never heard of but couldn’t wait to go home to play just because some cool person took the time out to educate you (just like they did me at Strawberry’s years ago!).
