And so many of them only half completed. Going through all my old tapes uncovered so many unfinished pieces. Projects started either on my own or with friends that never got off the ground.
Listening to some of them brought back good memories. Listening to others made me wonder what the hell I was thinking when I record them, and others still I had no recollection of whatsoever.
Whilst in many ways it is interesting to hear all this stuff, I’ve dumped probably in the region of 70% of the material I’ve made over the years and I’m still not sure about some of the stuff I’ve kept.
It has made me want to take a few of these old projects forward again, and perhaps that’s a good thing. Time will tell. Hopefully in a few years when I’m going through a similar process of review I won’t have the same experience. Who knows?
