In 2007, I bought Goth-accordionist-singer-songwriter Jason Webley’s CD “The Cost of Living”. I’m a big fan of Mr. Webley’s music, ever since he performed on my stage at a ren-goth convention. I bought two of his CDs at the show, which I don’t do very often. (When I’m in audio-monkey mode, musicians belong behind the microphone, not in my wallet.)
I’m enjoying The Cost of Living a lot more than I did when I first got it. In 2007, I thought it was decent but overproduced. The album’s got a lot more energy than it had when my ears were younger. I’m not sure what changed, except that I’ve been listening to more klezmer and prog-jazz.
