Music. Music makes me happy.

I was asked today to list 12 albums that made an impression on me. An idle day activity that made me think back to  pleasurable listening, to days of vinyl past. I have to stop at 20 the rules after all, were for a dozen. As I added each and then reread the list there were more to be added- genres and decades missing but having stretched the rules far enough. I share with you my list. Be happy!
