One event triggers another, we pass along a cause and effect path to a final unknown destination.

At every decision point, alternate routes are left behind  … or are even closed.

My decisions are simple:

What song or piece of music should appear next on my playlist?

The rules:

1. Every song chosen is influenced by or linked to its predecessor.
2. Every song chosen must be contained within my collection.
3. Repetitions are not allowed. (Repetition is the same performance of the same song by the same artist. For example: If Dylan’s studio performance of Tangled Up In Blue from Blood On The Tracks has been played, it cannot be repeated but the version that appears on Live 1975 may still be used.)
4. The preference is that the same artist does not appear consecutively (not a rule just a guideline).
5. The starting point is: Crossroad Blues by Robert Johnson.

As we go through this I’d love to hear your thoughts on path I take … and what selections you would make at any points along the way.

  1. Thanks for following The Immortal Jukebox. I hope you will enjoy the wide variety of music covered and some entertaining writing. I welcome comments from readers. I usually post on a weekly basis. Regards and good luck with all your projects. Thom.

    • Thanks Thom, appreciate your dropping by At The Crossroads – despite it being sadly neglected by me. Also thanks for reminding me about The Immortal Jukebox – though I do follow it. Anyway, you nudged me toward a return visit – I read your post on Doug Sahm and shared it on FB and Twitter, hoping some of my wealthier contacts might read and head, with hands in pockets, to the Kickstarter campaign.

  2. Thanks for visiting my blog. I like your taste in music!

    • Thanks. Pleased you like my taste … that may change if and when my crossroads are in a different territory, though I notice that you have fairly eclectic tastes too. Cheers max
