OK, so exactly why has EFA70sTRA chosen to blur our certain entries in this collated list of LP’s owned in 1974?
Is it embarrassment about some of the things I had? I think you know me well enough by now that I ‘edit’ very little from my world back then, so that would have to be a loud “No”
Instead, I wanted to build up a some anticipation for the LP’s I acquired as the year progressed.
Especially as, very sadly, the number of written entries in this 1974 diary is very meagre indeed. A quick count shows that out of 365 possible scribblings the diary holds a mere 40 or so, and many of them are no more than one word. There is nothing written for February, March, September, October or November at all. *sigh*
This is quite upsetting for me, and not just in terms of the viability of this project. 1974 was my O-Level year, meaning that I have no real record of what kind of emotional state I might have been in preparing for them. I allude to them from time to, but there’s nothing specific. Indeed, looking back at this diary I just feel full disappointed.
In terms of the necessary timeline I will of course share what I do have, and hope that 1975 proves a little more lucrative in terms of written real estate.
I can only apologise in advance. Now you now WHY I needed to save those album titles… so I would have something to write about!
