Comfort food albums develop the same way. They are the albums that remind you of a simpler time, the ones you literally wore out to the point of replacement and the ones that bring you back to favorite eras in your past. For me, the albums that really take me back aren’t necessarily the albums that I still listen to on a regular basis. I am sure this has helped retain their luster of the past as they are not tainted with present attachments.
Putting on a comfort food album is like visiting with an old friend you haven’t seen in years. You retell old stories, you are reminded of things you have forgotten about and if you are lucky you find a new connection.
I will not apologize for my list. It is what it is, a small collection of the albums that make me feel all warm and gooshy inside
