    It does lead to some interesting introspection. When the album came out, my father was the same age as the album is now, more or less.

    Think about it. . .

    In 1967, the music from 1918 (when my father was born) was less distant than is Sergeant Pepper now.

    Feeling old yet?

    Yes Ron I'm feeling old, however you make an interesting point, the same one that I often reflect on. For example in the gym I go they stream music from from a commercial free Classic Rock station. Must of the music is from the ten years between 1965 and 1975. To the younger members of the gym whom I am friends with I refer to the music as "Dad Radio" since all the music being played is what their dads (you know, guys my age) grew up listening to. I also tell them my "Dad Radio" would be mostly swing jazz (Count Basic, Benny Goodman, Fats Waller, etc.) since that is the music MY father grew up listening to.

    And you are quite right: in 1980, when I was 25 years old, swing jazz was less than 50 years old whereas the most of the classic rock being played in the gym (and at many public events like sporting events) is at or almost 50 years old. In 1980 one would have never heard any once very popular swing jazz being played at a public event.

    Both my Son and Daughter went through the what I call "rebellious stage" with the Rap/Hip-hop with the overly loud muddy bass and non-stop profanity. They both now look for what they call the "Oldies" stations to listen to 80's and 90's music with my son bringing in the 70's and some of the bigger Rock hits from the late 60's. I feel bad for them because I hear songs on Sirius that take me back to specific memories of an event, moment, or the exact thing I was doing when I hear those songs from the 60's or 70's (which is the Oldies Station for me). The reason I feel bad for them is because I just can't see there being a "Rap Oldies" station in 15 or 20 years which would trigger memories of their teen and early 20's years! Maybe it's just me as music has always been a big part of my life. I wake up to music, shower and brush my teeth to music, did all my school studying to music (was a great memory recall aid during tests for me), music is on in the car, out by the pool, screening in the deck pissing the neighbors off, IE when ever possible.

    Don't get me started on what is being called Music today, Taylor Swift saying the same three words over and over again to programmed electronic loop is not my idea of music no matter how flashy the video is. My parents listened to Jazz, Swing, and Country along with the big singers of the day, Sinatra, Como, Boone, Bennett, Crosby, Arnold, etc along with what I call some mainstream Classical.

    Time to go into the Home Theater Room! Maybe a Star Wars - Raiders of the Lost Ark movie marathon weekend (of course that might be too much Harrison Ford for anybody to take)!
