Boys for Pele - 'We Write Lists' Part Three

Part three in a six-parter of guest blogs from Allison Crowe is now posted by UK-based culture blog We Write Lists which notes:

"Over the last couple weeks we've had the pleasure of bringing you the first two entries in a series of musician and singer-songwriter Allison Crowe's guest-posts for We Write Lists. We'd asked her to write about her six favourite albums, which was admittedly a cruel challenge to set. Instead, Allison chose six albums that held her heart, and influenced her significantly, during the formative years of her musical life. And, kindly, she sent us so much on each album that they warranted serialisation - the third excerpt of which you may enjoy now..."

Just nipped over to have a read of 'Part three'. Really interesting. It always interests me to hear what music means to people but to hear it from the horse's mouth, as it were, is even better. I think us observers tend to forget that musicians are fans too and it is rather heartwarming to have it spelled out. Great stuff!

I am in full agreement.

Allison, with whom I've now worked alongside for a decade, very rarely, if ever, speaks about her own music or creative process.

When she was invited, though, to talk about her favourite music, she burst forth with essays on those albums she loved at a pivotal time in her life and she's prepared to write more about favourite jazz, rock, pop, you-name-it inspirations.

Indeed, we are ALL music obsessives, and it's a joy to remember why!
