Gift Choices for Music Lovers on Your List
My father loves music, it was from him that I gained the appreciation for all kinds of music. Growing up as a little girl in Trinidad he didn’t just play the soca, reggae and dub music of our culture. He played top 100, R&B, Rock, Blues, Jazz and so much more. So when I met my husband who also had that love of music I knew he was someone I could love. Shopping for both these men during the holidays always even up with music on my gift list. If you’re looking for more music choices for someone on your shopping list check out these awesome options from Legacy Recordings.
My husband would talk to my about the Isley Brothers’ music for years. He has memories of his mother playing their music when he was a child. When I saw their album masters available through Legacy Recordings I knew it was something he should own for his music collection. Thanks to Legacy Recordings for providing me with a copy of the Isley Brothers’ Album Masters.
