Here, as a postscript of sorts to my feature with Ned Raggett, is Ned discussing ten tracks which are "markers" or "signposts" of his life as a music fan. Chosen chronologically, his selections begin with a popular seventies soundtrack and end with a modern day -- and somewhat divisive -- r&b sensation, with much else in between of course. I like almost all of Ned's choices (particularly inspiring: Shaun Cassidy and Ethiopian songstress, Hirut Beqele), but more to the point, it's his rationale for each selection that resonates... So much so that I'd like to approach my own personal version of this at some point, and perhaps survey some other folks for theirs as well.
Thanks again to Ned for partaking in all this. Was great fun chatting with him.
