A Musical Homage to My Pops

My dad’s musical taste in rock from the late 60’s and early 70’s inspired me enormously in my early teens, and still does to this day. So as a Father’s Day tribute, I made him a mix CD — I wanted to make it all prog/proto-prog but it came out as more of a mish-mash of 60’s psych & garage, ranging from pop-ish to prog-ish, also a lot of instrumentals. So here’s to you, Dad: Trimmer of Live Oaks, Player of Accordion, Auditor of Wrongdoing, Baker of Bread, Wielder of Tractor, Walker of Dog, Dissassembler of Houses, Laugher of Everything, Reader of Epistemology, Director of Choir, Student of Accounting, Fan of Spurs, Mechanic of Cars, Eater of Barbecue, Watcher of History Channel, Builder of Fences, Advisor of Finances, Cook of Stew, Master of Woodstove, Visionary, Nerd, and Renaissance Man.
