Can You Enjoy Your Own Music?
Do you ever listen to your own recording, such as the great Eye in the Sky album, for simple enjoyment? And, can you do this without re-thinking how you could have made it different or better?

Love the crystal mic. on your icon. I definitely had one of those in the early sixties with a crappy Japanese tape recorder costing about 6 pounds.

I occasionally listen to one of my old albums - usually in the car on a long drive. You forget things over time and it's actually quite refreshing to revisit old material. I'm not often disappointed with what I hear.
