It was an interesting idea. Might even have been an interesting blog. Problem was, I could never seem to get around to writing it and the unfinished business gnawed at the back of my brain for a matter of years.
Today I put up the copy of Exile on Main Street that I'd picked up for the blog in question on swap.com and a copy of David Bowie's The Man Who Sold the World popped up as a possibility. Sold.
I did try listening, and I even took notes, but the thing so completely failed to hold my interest that I couldn't even muster an entertainingly snarky review. The most it did was make me want to smack Mick Jagger upside the head with a bottle of Jack Daniels, tell him to wake the fuck up and remind him that he is neither African-American nor Southern.
So I deleted the Virgin Ear blog today. I might revive the notion over here, as an occasional feature, though with much shorter reviews than the ones I intended.
